    The race for the title isn’t the only issue likely to go down to the wire in the Premier League this season.Below Manchester City and Liverpool [url=https://www.thetopsoccer.com/club-team-kit/borussia-dortmund]Cheap Dortmund Soccer Team Uniform[/url] , there are four big teams chasing the final two qualification spots for next season’s Champions League. They are separated by only three points with a little over a month to go.Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United know the importance of getting into Europe’s biggest competition, for reasons of finance and prestige above all else. But they all face complications, not least since each of them is still involved in either the Champions League or the Europa League.A look at the race for the top four:TOTTENHAMAfter a winless run of five games, third-place Tottenham arrested its slide in the Premier League with a win over Crystal Palace in the first game at its newly built 1 billion pound ($1.3 billion) stadium. Players spoke of the fantastic atmosphere in the stadium, compared to what they felt while playing at the temporary home of Wembley Stadium over the past 20 months, so the move “home” could energize Tottenham for the run-in.Four of the team’s remaining six games are at home, and they are favorable ones against already-relegated Huddersfield, relegation-threatened Brighton and two teams who are safe in West Ham and Everton.There is not much room to maneuver, though, after the team’s recent struggles. And being involved in a two-legged Champions League quarterfinal series against Manchester City will test the strength of the squad. Tottenham’s hardest remaining league game is against City, too.Remaining matches: Huddersfield (home), Manchester City (away), Brighton (home), West Ham (home), Bournemouth (away), Everton (home).ARSENALOnly Manchester City has better form than fourth-place Arsenal in the Premier League over the last five games [url=https://www.thetopsoccer.com/club-team-kit/chelsea]www.thetopsoccer.com/club-team-kit/chelsea[/url] , after earning 13 points from a possible 15. And with 10 straight home wins, Arsenal’s credentials at Emirates Stadium are not in question.It’s the team’s away form that is an issue — and five of its remaining seven games are on the road, starting on Sunday against at improving Everton.Another thing that could affect the team is its involvement in the Europa League. Arsenal faces Napoli over two legs in the quarterfinals starting next week and manager Unai Emery, a winner of the competition three times with Sevilla, is sure to take it seriously.Arsenal, however, appears to have the most benign run-in as it doesn’t face an opponent in the top six for the rest of the season.Remaining matches: Everton (away), Watford (away), Crystal Palace (home), Wolverhampton Wanderers (away), Leicester (away), Brighton (home), Burnley (away).CHELSEAThe Europa League should initially be less of a distraction for fifth-place Chelsea, which was drawn against possibly the weakest team in the quarterfinals — Slavia Prague. It should mean manager Maurizio Sarri can continue to field a weakened team in the competition.Winning the Europa League might even prove to be the best route back to the Champions League, with a couple of tough away games making their bid for a top-four finish difficult. The first is at Liverpool on April 14 and the other is against Manchester United, with the loser of that match potentially getting knocked out of the running.Finishing at Leicester, resurgent under Brendan Rodgers, might also be difficult for Chelsea.Remaining matches: West Ham (home) [url=https://www.thetopsoccer.com/club-team-kit/inter-milan]Cheap Inter Milan Soccer Team Uniform[/url] , Liverpool (away), Burnley (home), Manchester United (away), Watford (home), Leicester (away).MANCHESTER UNITEDIt all looked so good for United this time last month when, after an unbeaten 12-match run that included 10 victories, the team found itself in the top four and was in unstoppable form under then-caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.Losses to Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers have stalled the momentum and dropped United to sixth place, making it possibly the least likely of the quartet to finish in the Champions League spots.United’s last two games couldn’t be more ideal — at Huddersfield and at home to Cardiff — so it is all about getting to them in a good enough position, and one week at the end of April is set to define the team’s challenge. In that period, United pays at Everton and hosts both Manchester City and Chelsea.After those games, it should be clear if United still has a chance. Also complicating matters is their progress to the quarterfinals of the Champions League, but they will be underdogs against Barcelona in matches on April 10 and 16.Remaining matches: West Ham (home), Everton (away), Manchester City (home), Chelsea (home), Huddersfield (away), Cardiff (home). BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Karim Benzema scored in the second half to ensure Real Madrid rebounded from its poor performance in the Champions League with its first victory at Sevilla in four years.Benzema’s 64th-minute header clinched the 1-0 Spanish league victory on Sunday. It came with the pressure building on coach Zinedine Zidane after his team didn’t manage a shot on goal during a 3-0 loss at Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League group opener.Madrid’s players responded to their embarrassing performance in Paris on Wednesday — when Zidane criticized them for not giving enough effort — by intensely chasing Sevilla players at all times to regain possession.“We knew how tough it would be. We hadn’t won here in years” said Madrid defender Sergio Ramos. “We can now relax some after all that has been said this week. When (Zidane) spoke about intensity [url=https://www.thetopsoccer.com/club-team-kit/juventus]www.thetopsoccer.com/club-team-kit/juventus[/url] , he was talking about paying attention to the details, about winning the individual battles, and today we showed we were motivated to get the win.”Both sides gave fans at El Pizjuan Stadium an attractive contest, featuring non-stop pressure and sleek passing combinations.Sevilla goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik blocked a shot from a tight angle by Eden Hazard in the 35th after James Rodríguez stole possession from Fernando. Vaclik then saved a one-on-one situation against Dani Carvajal.Sevilla, coached by former Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui, responded with the combined speed of Lucas Ocampos and Jesus Navas on its right flank. Substitute Oliver Torres added more playmaking in the middle when he came on early in the second half.The goal came after Madrid gained possession once again which allowed Carvajal to reach the end line and float a cross for Benzema to head over Vaclik, who was caught on his wrong foot.That was only the second goal Sevilla’s defense had conceded in six matches in all competitions this season.The loss was Sevilla’s first of the campaign.Madrid is in second place, behind leader Athletic Bilbao on goal difference. Granada, Real Sociedad, Sevilla and Atlético Madrid are one point behind. Struggling Barcelona, which lost 2-0 at Granada on Saturday, is in eighth place.WILLIAMS SHINESIñaki Williams helped to create a goal in each half to keep Bilbao undefeated and lift the Basque club to the top of the standings after a 2-0 win over Alavés.Williams was fouled from behind, allowing Raúl García to score from the penalty spot in the first half. The winger rattled the woodwork shortly before his cross was finally smashed into the net by Iker Muniain in the 72nd to put the result beyond doubt.PROTESTS AGAINST OWNERValencia was held to a 1-1 draw at home by Leganés amid fans’ protests against club owner Peter Lim for his recent decision to fire the team’s popular coach.Some fans at Mestalla Stadium loudly chanted “Peter Lim, leave!” before and after kickoff.Rodrigo Moreno earned a penalty which was converted by Dani Parejo to give Valencia the lead in the 21st. Óscar Rodríguez equalized for Leganés in the 38th.“I understand that people can have their opinion and can protest,” Rodrigo said about the protests. “But we have to also have respect for the coach we have because he is the one who is going to help us achieve our goals.”OTHER GAMESReal Sociedad striker Willian José scored twice in the first half to help earn a 3-1 victory at Espanyol, which is now in the relegation zone.Getafe beat Mallorca 4-2 at home for its first league win this season.
