I wouldn't say that. Farsenal have an easy end to the year whereas Chelsea have a real challenge ahead of them. Tottenham have an easy-ish schedule as well.
3rd v 4th is immaterial anyway -- it is all about grabbing a CL spot.
Chelsea's advantage is that they control their destiny, they will be playing a Tottenham that basically has to win, and United will be mentally half on vacation (nothing to fight for anymore except most victories in a season).
(easy 9 pts there)
- Chelsea (need 8 pts to guarantee CL qualification assuming everyone else wins all their games)
(ouch, need to win 2 and draw 2 at minimum)
