Five questions in the Premier League

Will Chelsea finish the job?

Instead, following last weekend's 1-0 defeat at West Ham United, the likelihood is that by the time Mauricio Pochettino's men kick off against Manchester United, Chelsea will have already captured the crown.

After seeing their side fail to score in five away games against the top six so far this season, Manchester United's travelling supporters will be desperate for something to cheer about against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City sit in a good position, one point off third-placed Liverpool with a game in hand.

It would equal the club record and set a new mark for successive home league wins within the same campaign.

'It is different to fight for top four than to play to win a European competition, ' he said ahead of Thursday's match at Old Trafford.

Both teams are looking to secure a Champions League spot which looked like a certainty for the Merseyside club until a late run of form from Arsenal put them unexpectedly back in contention.

"We have got to win the last two and see where that takes us".

The former Chelsea goalkeeper added: "We are aware of the fact that we probably need to win all of our remaining games to be sure that we will be in the race until the last minute".

The Reds are now in third but their spot in the Champions League qualification spots is under threat with both Manchester City and Arsenal breathing down their necks, which isn't helped by the fact that they have taken just four points from the last nine available.

A point below Swansea in 18th place, Hull will be relegated along with Sunderland and Middlesbrough if they lose at Crystal Palace on Sunday and Swansea beat Sunderland on Saturday.
