With Manchester United already crowned as Premier League champions, all eyes are on the three giants from London who are battling it out for a Champions League spot for next season.

Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny recently stated that his side have a better chance of making it to the top four than north London rivals Tottenham.

"If we win our next two games it will be enough as either Chelsea or Spurs will drop points as they play each other," the Poland international stated. "Tottenham do not have enough quality."

The 23-year old added: "I was convinced that Tottenham had drawn 0-0 against Southampton. I only found out after the game that they had won 1-0, but I don't think it matters really."

Arsenal are currently in fourth place, one point behind Chelsea and two points ahead of Tottenham, but Spurs and the Blues both have a game in hand. For Tottenham it is certainly necessary to get three points against Chelsea if they want to qualify for the Champions League.

Arsenal, on the other hand, would be hoping for a draw or a victory for Chelsea, if they want top-flight European football next season. It would be a huge disappointment for the Gunners if they fail to qualify for Europe because they have appeared in the tournament consecutively for the last 13 seasons - and it's the very least their fans deserve keeping in mind the trophy drought since their 2005 FA Cup triumph.

Arsenal, who beat QPR 1-0 at the weekend, are enjoying a nine-game unbeaten run and hope to extend it until the end of the season.

Szczesny emphasised the importance of winning by saying: "I would settle for another two 1-0 wins for the rest of the season and a place in the top three, even if we have games like the QPR one, it might have been boring at times, but we couldn't care less at this time."
