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.
