Chelsea is still leading the league with 66 points with a two game winning run, as per the league's official website. The Blues have drawn two of their last five matches, but the team is still ahead by ten points from closest pursuers Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City with 11 matches left in their campaign this season.
The Spurs and Citizens are tied on points with 56, but Tottenham has the higher goal differential to capture second place. Rounding out the top four is Liverpool, only one point behind Tottenham and City. Only the top four teams at the end of the season will qualify for next season's Champions League tournament.
On the outside looking in are Arsenal, Manchester United, and Everton who are currently settled in the fifth, sixth, and seventh spots of the English top-flight table. Arsenal has been on a downward spiral with three losses in their last four games, while United has managed only two wins in their last six outings. Everton is equally inconsistent with three wins, two draws, and a loss in their last six matches.
