Blues 10-11 for top four after win over West Ham
Chelsea are 10-11 to claim a top-four spot in the Premier League after beating West Ham 2-0 on Monday night to move up to third above Arsenal and Tottenham.
The Blues, who have now played a game more than their north London rivals and sixth-placed Manchester United, are on 66 points with 2-7 Spurs on 64 and the 10-11 Gunners on 63. The Red Devils, on 61 points, are 11-4 to finish in the top four.
Eden Hazard was the star of the show at Stamford Bridge, with a wonderful individual goal in the first half - when it was virtually one-way traffic towards the Hammers' goal - and a cool last-minute control-and-finish from a Ross Barkley pass to seal three points after the visitors had begun to threaten occasionally. There were plenty of mazy dribbles, efforts on target and delicate passes and touches in between too.
And the brilliant Belgian is now as short as 25-1 to be the top Premier League scorer after taking his tally to 16 goals, three strikes behind 7-5 market-leader Sergio Aguero. Mo Salah, 11-4 second-favourite, has hit 18 league goals and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Harry Kane and Sadio Mane have all notched 17.
The Blues can also qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League and they are 4-6 to beat Slavia Prague in the Czech capital on Thursday and 1-7 to prevail in the quarter-final tie.
On Sunday, Maurizio Sarri's side go to Anfield and leaders Liverpool. They are 5-1 to stun the Kop, with the draw at 16-5 and the Reds at 8-13.
