With the season drawing to a close, it looks as if the top dogs from London are the ones left battling it out for the final two Champions League spots. 

Here's a look at the three of them and their chances of Champions League qualification. 

Chelsea

Chelsea are currently in third position after having a topsy turvy season. They started off so brightly with Eden Hazard in superb form. But after Roberto Di Matteo was sacked, it seems everything at Chelsea has gone down the pan.

With Rafael Benitez being appointed, there was undoubtedly going to be some stiff opposition from the loyal fans of the blues. But the hatred towards Benitez has actually affected the players, according to John Obi Mikel.

Chelsea do have a good squad, with players such as Petr Cech and Demba Ba also in good form. But I cannot see them keeping their third position slot in the table.

Tottenham Hotspur

Can Tottenham manage to keep their grip on a Champions League place? Tottenham manager Villas Boas is under intense scrutiny after losing two consecutive premier league games. He claims that the Europa League matches are not to blame for the recent performances, but it’s hard not to believe that.

However, having a player such as Gareth Bale in such scintillating form, and with Jermain Defoe fit again, it seems as if Tottenham have a good enough team to keep hold of their place. 

And with the central-defensive pairing of Jan Vertonghen and Michael Dawson working brilliantly - there seems to be nothing stopping Tottenham in their bid for Champions League football.

Arsenal

Arsenal are in fifth position after a seemingly disappointing season. For the eigth year running they haven’t been able to secure any silverware.

But there is good news for Gunners fans, their squad has shown they are still a force to be reckoned with following a tight loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, and with young talent such as Jack Wilshere and Carl Jenkinson coming through, Arsenal could still push for the coveted final Champions League spot.
