Who will finish in the top 4 in 2012-13?

11 February 2013 09:17

With Manchester United sitting comfortably 12 points clear of their noisy neighbours, for most, the title race is almost over. Manchester City’s poor run (2 points from a possible 9) has seen them lose ground to league leaders, falling prey to the teams below them. However, the race for Champions League positions is gaining momentum. As many as five teams are vying the remaining three spots.

Any of these teams gunning for Champions League places, have the potential to outdo each other. There are certainly going to be a few twists before the season ends and, if last season’s* maddening finale is anything to go by; it’s anyone’s guess who will prevail.
