Finishing in the top 4 spots in the English Premier League guarantees a team entry into the following season's UEFA Champions League competition, one of the most prestigious 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 fourt, just one point above London rivals Arsenal.

Liverpool and Manchester City are basically guaranteed the top two spots once again. Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea are expected to battle it out for top 4 but Leicester City's great start to the season has seen Brendan Rodgers' side in with a good chance of returning to the Champions League after their shock EPL win in 2016.. 

English Premier League 2019/20 Top 4 Betting Odds 

Manchester City and Liverpool are all but assured of a top four place. Arsenal 
and Tottenham have eased in the betting market with Chelsea and Leicester taking over as favourites to finish in the top 4.

The odds on Manchester United have tumbled from 2.10 to 6.00 with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær remaining under pressure. Everton and Wolves are outsiders with West Ham, Bournemouth and Cystal Palace surely out of the race.

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 eight wins in their first 12 games of the season.

The Foxes currently sit in second position, equal on 26 points with Chelsea and one ahead of Manchester City. Having firmed from 3.75 to 1.57 in just over one month, bookmakers are keeping Leicester very safe.

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 chances for young players with Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham taking their chance. The Blues are now listed at 1.22 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. Tottenham’s North London rivals Arsenal are also in trouble in their aim for a top 4 finish, Unai Emery looking unlikely to improve on the Gunners' fifth-placed finish last season. 

Manchester United are in free fall at the moment. Another underwhelming transfer window coupled with a poor run of form at the end of last season means another sixth-placed finish, if not lower, could be on the cards this season.
