Finishing in the English Premier League  top 4 guarantees a entry into the following season's UEFA Champions League, one of the most prestigious and prosperous cup competitions in world football. 

Last season's race for the top 4 saw the top two spots occupied by Liverpool and Manchester City. Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea were all fighting for the remaining two positions with Chelsea sneaking into third place on the final day and Tottenham limping over the line into fourth, just one point above London rivals Arsenal.

Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City are almost guaranteed the top three spots this season. Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea were expected to battle it out for the top 4 but Brendan Rodgers' side have had a tremendous first half of the campaign and appear certain to return to the Champions League after their shock EPL win in 2016.

Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City are all but assured of a top four place with the odds reflecting that assumption. Arsenal 
have drifted dramatically in the betting market with Chelsea favourites to finish in the top 4. 

The odds on Manchester United have tumbled from 2.10 to 9.00 with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær constantly under pressure. Tottenham are still in the race at 4.00 but Jose Mourinho's side can't afford to be without Harry Kane for long.

English Premier League 2019/20 Top 4 Betting Tips

Leicester City have been the big movers in the race for a top 4 finish in the English Premier League. Brendan Rodgers took over in February and implemented his ideas that have resulted in 14 wins in their first 21 games of the season.

The Foxes currently sit in second position, 13 points behind Liverpool and one ahead of Manchester City. Having firmed from 3.75 to 1.07, bookmakers are taking no chances with Rodgers' side.

Chelsea are the real dark horses this campaign and started the season strong under Frank Lampard. The loss of Eden Hazard and a transfer ban has meant opportunities for young players with Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham taking their chance. The Blues are now listed at 1.57 having previously been priced at 1.90.

Tottenham suffered a 7-2 Champions League thrashing against Bayern Munich that saw Spurs drift in the EPL top 4 betting market. The appointment of Jose Mourinho could be a big turning point for Spurs but Harry Kane's injury is a big concern.

Tottenham’s North London rivals Arsenal are also in trouble in their aim for a top 4 finish. Unai Emery was replaced by Mikel Arteta with the Gunners sitting 10 points behind Chelsea who occupy fourth spot. 

Manchester United are still inconsistent under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the Red Devils hovering around the 9.00 as they sit seventh in the Premier League table.

If Chelsea falter the obvious dangers are Manchester United who could be worth backing at 9.00. Keep an eye on Arsenal at 41.00 who could be big movers under Arteta.
