Arsenal and Man City remain the outright favourites to secure the title, with Manchester United also harbouring slim hopes of being crowned champions.

Antonio Conte's prediction

Antonio Conte believes Man United have all but secured a Premier League third-place finish, while Chelsea also have a chance to make the top four.

Conte's bold prediction about Chelsea came at a time his former side are trying to build some momentum after a disastrous run of results.

The Blues secured their third straight win on Saturday after seeing off Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

"We know very well the race for a place in Champions League will be really, really tough. You see the competitors," SuperSport quoted the Italian saying.
"You see Chelsea and what happened there and their position, but I don’t consider Chelsea outside [the top-four race]. They have the possibility to win the last 11 or 12 games in a row because the squad is really, really strong," he continued.

Richarlison calls out Conte

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Richarlison has come out with a daring criticism of his manager Antonio Conte as he lamented on what he claims has been a poor season.

The North Londoners crashed out of the Champions League on Wednesday, March 8, after being held to a 0-0 draw at home by AC Milan, who proceeded to the next round 1-0 on aggregate.

Richarlison, who started for Spurs in the wins over West Ham and Chelsea, came on in the last 20 minutes against Milan yesterday but could not inspire his side to a comeback.
