The race to get into the Champions League is one of the most hotly-contested parts of the Premier League season.
Getting into the top four guarantees extra revenue but crucially ensures the highest standard of European football for the following season and allows clubs to attract the highest calibre of player possible.
With the title race often left to one or two teams to battle out, the race for the top four is usually far more open and here 101 Great Goals looks at odds for 2021/22 from the Premier League and which teams are favourites to get that last spot.
Arsenal strengthen top four grip
Arsenal seemingly strengthened their grip on a top 4 spot with a comfortable 2-0 win over Leicester City, courtesy of goals from Thomas Partey and an Alexandre Lacazette spot-kick.
The win means that Arsenal have taken 25 points from their last possible 30, with only defeat to Manchester City and a draw with Burnley blotting their copybook. It is form akin to the top two in the division.
However, that could come to an end imminently, with the Gunners hosting Liverpool in midweek before a trciky trip to Villa Park to take on a resurgent Villa side under Steven Gerrard.
For now, however, they are firm favourites for the top four.
Changes in the chasing pack
Meanwhile, there was a change in fortunes behind the Gunners as Manchester United propelled themselves back into the conversation thanks to a brilliant win over Tottenham, who themselves risk slipping out of contention.
The Red Devils currently sit a point behind Arsenal, though crucially they have played three games more than their north London competition. As a result, Bet365 has them as 7/2 outsiders to finish fourth come the end of the season.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are even more unfavoured following their defeat to United, despite having arguably the easiest run-in of the sides in the race. Six points behind Arsenal having played a game more, they are 9/2 on to finish fourth come the end of the season, according to bet365.
Last chance saloon
A win for West Ham kept their chances of Champions League football alive, albeit very slim. Three points behind Arsenal having played three games more, Moyes’ side seemingly need a miracle to finish fourth, and as a result are priced at 16/1.
Another side in desperate need of a miracle are Wolves, who recorded a scrappy 1-0 win over Everton. For Bruno Lage, however, it seems that the ship has sailed this season, with the bookies offering odds of 50/1 for a fourth-placed finish.
