With the international break underway, Chelsea news is likely to be a little slow for a bit. With that in mind, I wanted to throw out a little topic for discussion with you all. Manchester United appear to have a Champions League place all but sewn up at this point sitting on 63 points after 30 games with a +34 goal differential. Arsenal seem fairly comfortable on 58 after 29 contests and 30 goals to the positive. Chelsea sit third at 54 points from 29 contests, have a +29 goal differential, and have really put themselves in a fairly secure position with their win this weekend. Manchester City (+18) have 53 points from 30 games, and Tottenham Hotspur (+7) have gained 49 points in 29 games. Liverpool (+5) may still have an outside chance with 45 points from 30 games, but an awful lot would have to break perfectly for them to rejoin Europe's elite next year. The full table can be found here.

Assuming Arsenal and Manchester United are all but in at this point, that leaves two Champions League places for the four remaining teams. I'm assuming that everyone here wants Chelsea to qualify, and since they have been playing the best of the four as of late, have the tiebreaker, have given themselves a comfortable cushion on both City and Spurs (and an almost insurmountable one against Liverpool), and have by far the easiest run in of the bunch we'll assume for this discussion that they are qualifying as well. That leaves us with City, Liverpool, and Tottenham fighting for a single Champions League place. I want to know who you'd like to see earn the spot and why, so have at it with the poll and leave your comments below explaining why you chose the way you did.
