But these sides can still have a big say on who does.

Spurs host Leicester on Sunday, while Wolves visit Chelsea in Matchweek 38.

The Blues are currently third, a point above Leicester and Man Utd, after they beat Norwich City 1-0 on Tuesday night.

But their next match is at the home of champions Liverpool, meaning that, like Leicester, they have two remaining matches against top-half opponents.

Man Utd host West Ham United next up, knowing they can go to Leicester with a UEFA Champions League spot in their own hands if they better the Foxes' Matchweek 37 result.
