Spurs And Villa Out Of Champions League Race

Spurs And Villa Out Of Champions League Race

Spurs and Villa are out of the Champions League race for fourth spot in the Premier League which is great news for their main rivals Liverpool and Man City.

That is according to Liverpool legend John Aldridge, who believes that both Liverpool's easier run in and City's ability to play attractive football and scores lots of goals will be the deciding factor.

'I personally think it's between Liverpool and Manchester City,' said Aldridge, 'It is obviously very tight, and I think it could go right down to the wire. We could be looking at the last day of the season being decisive.

'Manchester City are, at the moment anyway, playing the more attractive football, and scoring goals, but you look at Liverpool's run-in, and that to me gives them a slight edge.'

If only it would be so easy to count out a strong Villa side and exciting Tottenham team both as keen as mustard to take this year's chance of qualification to the big boys league

Aldridge may be right about Liverpool's run in, but the form of Tevez might have something to say about about the final outcome and if City can keep their home record going then the tough matches against Everton, United, Spurs and Villa will be the key.

One things for sure, and that's the race for fourth is shaping up to be the most exciting in Premier League history and that can only be good for the league as a whole.

Villa probably have the easiest, on paper, run in of the group. Liverpool have been there before. Man City score goals but have a shocking defense and Spurs are in fourth right now. All still to play for them...

John Adridge also probably said in the beginning of the season that Liverpool were gonna win the league this year ...The race for 4th spot is too tight to even guess..Liverpool do have an easier run but still I think it will all go down to the last day...Smashing stuff I tell you

A shocking defence? I've heard this and similar bandied about in recent weeks, maybe under Hughes there was truth in this, but since Mancio came in he has shored up the defence, perhaps people should watch City play instead of reaming off tabloid tripe.

Villa have the best fixtures, Spurs play the best football and score the most goals, Liverpool have been there before and grind out the results ... which just leaves City. Is there something going around up there today or did the sun come out? This and the Bellamy for Defoe article are making me quite concerned for the mental wellbeing of our Oasis aspiring friends.
