Liverpool vs. Chelsea FREE Live Stream: Watch English Premier League soccer online (4/14/19) | TV, time, odds

Below Manchester City and Liverpool, there are four big teams chasing the final two qualification spots for next season's Champions 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.

The 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 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.
