Man City edges closer to Champions League

Tuesday, 26th April 2011 9:04am
Manchester City's 1-nil over struggling Blackburn Rovers saw them move closer to Champions League football next season.

Man City can also possibly finish as high as third if they win all their remaining fixtures and third placed Arsenal slip up.

The hosts remained fifth from the bottom with four matches left to play.

Their four matches include two against relegation threatened West Ham and Wolves plus matches against Bolton and Manchester United.

City needed a second half goal to make sure they moved four points clear of Tottenham Hotspurs in fifth and five behind Arsenal.

Key for City will be their match against Spurs but by then the match could be irrelevant depending on how Spurs play against Chelsea and Liverpool.

Going into the last four rounds, I will take a look at the form table for the last six matches in the English Premiership:


TeamPWDLForAGDPtsStreak
Chelsea 6 5 10 133 1016WDWWWW
Liverpool 6 4 11 154 1113WWLWDW
Man United 6 4 11 95 413LWWWDW
Everton 6 3 21 105 511DWDWWL
W Brom 6 3 21 1311 211WDWWLD
Bolton 6 3 12 107 310DWLLWW
Man City 6 3 12 86 210DWLWLW
Tottenham 6 1 50 1110 18DDDWDD
Fulham 6 2 22 98 18DWLWLD
Aston Villa 6 2 22 88 08LLDWWD
Wolves 6 2 22 1011 -18WDWLLD
Arsenal 6 1 41 109 17DDWDDL
Wigan 6 2 13 78 -17LWDLWL
Bham City 6 2 13 712 -57LWDWLL
Stoke 6 1 32 99 06DLWDLD
Newcastle 6 1 23 69 -35LLWLDD
West Ham 6 1 14 612 -64WDLLLL
Sunderland 6 1 14 614 -84DLLLLW
Blackburn 6 0 33 59 -43LDDDLL
Blackpool 6 0 24 615 -92LDLLLD


So Blackpool and Blackburn have the worst form at the moment and leaders Manchester United will face these two teams in their last remaining four matches.

Chelsea and Liverpool are in top form in the last six matches and for Liverpool its a form that could give them Europa League football next season.
