A recent report suggests that the battle could get really intense with regards to the Premier League top four. It is being said that there could be an extra match at the end of the current campaign. A not-so-special season deserves a special ending? As per the stories coming in, something unique could happen. This is if Manchester United wins 5-3 against West Ham and they end up losing 1-0 to Leicester. Further, Chelsea must take at least three points from their final two matches.
The Funny Manchester United Story
Leicester versus United matches would be even too. The head-to-head will not be able to resolve this call. United won the home match with 1-0. So only way a playoff match is played when they both have the same goal difference (GD) and goals scored (GS). To add to that, the last match should end with a 1-0 win to Leicester. Then it will be the same points for both teams.
If that is the case, there will be a playoff to decide the fourth spot. The Red Devils and the Foxes will be tied on points, goal difference, goals scored and goals conceded. This would be something spectacular if it does indeed happen.
If Manchester United win 5-3 against West Ham, lose 1-0 to Leicester and Chelsea take at least 3 points from their final two matches, there will be a playoff to decide 4th spot.

What Could Be Chelsea’s Fate Now?
However, there are various other factors to consider as well. Chelsea needs to get at least three points from their remaining two games. A win will be enough to ensure Champions League football for the Blues. Another fun fact is that the west London outfit could be in Europe’s top cup competition next season, even if they lose both their games.
Further, one fun fact for the fans. United could be guaranteed a Champions League spot with two points. However, could miss out on it with three. Funny, the game of football. Isn’t it?
Well, things could get really interesting in the upcoming days, as the season draws to a close. It will be interesting to see which teams make it to the Champions League now. It is a neck-and-neck between the three sides.
