What 2-2 draw means for Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham

Arsenal fans watched on tenterhooks as Chelsea and Tottenham drew 2-2 tonight. But what does it all mean.

HITC's Nick Harris is on hand to explain...

The table looks like this: Chelsea, 69 points, Arsenal 67 points, Tottenham Hotspur 66 points.

For Arsenal, the fate is in their hands now. Win their two games and they will finish in the top four. They face Wigan at home, now almost relegated, and Newcastle away, who could be safe from the drop by time the season's final game comes around.

For Spurs, drawing at Stamford Bridge has given them one significant advantage, in the pressure it has placed on Arsenal - who would have to win both of their last two games to be sure of finishing above them. Spurs of course must win their final two games against Stoke (away) and Sunderland (home) to stand a chance.

Chelsea would still be two points clear in third with a draw, and four points in their last two games against Aston Villa and Everton would likely secure them that third position. With a far superior goal difference to Tottenham of 16 goals, three points may just be enough, as both would finish on 72 points.

What do you think of the result? Who will finish in the top four?
