Chelsea will take on Tottenham Hotspur for the battle of the final UEFA Champions League spot on Sunday. Spurs travel to Chelsea this weekend seeking to end a 28-year wait to win a league match at Stamford Bridge.

With Liverpool, just two points further ahead in the third position, and having played a game more, the fight for the last two spots of the Champions League position is heating up.

Should Spurs shake off the absence of the injured Harry Kane to win the game, they could end Chelsea's realistic hopes of a top-four finish. Antonio Conte's men already trail fourth-placed Spurs by five points.

Meanwhile, Manchester United who trails the league leaders Manchester City by 16 points will be hosting Swansea City on Saturday. Even though United’s chances of winning the title are almost obsolete, Jose Mourinho’s team need to keep the winning momentum up after disastrous early Champions League exit against Sevilla.

Elsewhere, league leader Manchester City will be affirming their status as the dominant team in England with an opportunity to maintain their healthy point gap over the others when they travel to Everton on Saturday.

With only eight games left to play for, City will be looking to make the most out of the next few games to close out the title before the season is over and focus all their resources for Champions League quarterfinal against Liverpool.
