A 2-1 win by Aston Villa tonight at Wigan has brought them up to 7th on 49 points, piling the pressure on Liverpool as well as the other clubs fighting for Champions League entry. The four teams in contention, Tottenham, Man City, Liverpool and Aston Villa are separated by a mere 3 points, with games in hand confusing the scrap even more.
As I mentioned previously, losing out on Champions League participation could be disastrous for Liverpool. Can they push on with their recent form and fend off the challengers? Or will it be one of the new upstarts who find themselves in Europe’s top competition come May? Have your say in the comments.
