Because of the way things have gone in the English Premier League this week, the chances of Arsenal getting another top four finish under Arsene Wenger are looking slimmer than ever, despite the fact the the players put on a real show to power past the Potters and secure a rare away win at Stoke.
We still have six points to play for while Liverpool only have three, but because they scored four goals yesterday it does not look like a draw in their last game would be enough and while it is feasible that Boro could take a point it is hard to see them winning at Anfield at the weekend.
So unless we go goal crazy while winning the last two games against Sunderland and Everton, I see Man City as being the team to catch. They also have two games to play, at home to West Brom tomorrow and away to Watford on the final day.
It would be good for the Gunners to go into that final day either level with City or just a point behind and that could happen if West Brom do us a favour at the Etihad. Looking at the recent form of the Baggies that does not look good, but they nearly kept Chelsea out in the last game and I am sure that Tony Pulis will not want them to end the season with a string of losses.
Could they do Arsenal a big favour tomorrow and keep the top four fight going?
