EPL top-four drama: Two slots remains, pressure on Chelsea, Allison rescue Liverpool, etc

In 2012, the English premier league winner was decided in the final minutes of the competition. In 2021, this seems to be a direct opposite; the three relegated clubs is clearly defined since last week. 

Manchester City has also won the premiership thanks to the loss of Manchester United against Leicester. For the top four, the two Manchester clubs have already secured their places leaving only two spots with two matches to go.

Over the weekend, Liverpool scored West Brom by two goals to one. Mohammed Salah and Allison Becker scored the goals for the Liliverpaldians. The Brazilian goalkeeper's 95th-minute header was a pure shocker to the world and indeed, he has put pressure on Chelsea and Leicester City.

But to be honest, for Chelsea to qualify for the top 4, they have to win all their remaining two games. They now lead Liverpool by a point and any slip can ruin the glory of Thomas Tuchel's side.

The blues will play Leicester City tomorrow before their last match against Aston Villa. Tomorrow's game would likely determine their future because they lost to the foxes 2 days ago.

Will Chelsea be able to secure their top 4 spot? What of Liverpool? Although Leicester is in a comfortable lead, they still have to fight till the last minute.
