    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).

    schedule:

    - Farsenal
    QPRelegated
    Wigan
    Newcastle
    (easy 9 pts there)

    - Chelsea (need 8 pts to guarantee CL qualification assuming everyone else wins all their games)
    United
    Spurtsz
    Villa
    Everton
    (ouch, need to win 2 and draw 2 at minimum)

    - Tottenham
    southhampton
    Chelsea
    stoke
    sunderland

    Ramos is a hugh asshole.
    I hope he injures himself so I never have to see him play again.
    His repeated intended and unpunished hits against other players heads are a shame to watch.

    Ramos, Pepe, Coentrao, Alonso, Higuain - I really hate the Real squad, such sissies and all of them highly unfair players.
    Hope Varane won't start acting like them, he seems to be a very skilled young player.
    Great fun to see a class act like BVB with true role models like Hummels and Lewandowski beat Real.

    EDIT: Weidenfeller shouldn't have done that.... just as poor sportsmanship as Real

    Agree, Gündogan and several times Lewandowski could and should have scored.
    Great goals by Real, but in the end I think the better team advanced.
    Hope Götze will recover fast so he can play in the final.

    Based on that run in, I could really see Tottenham finishing ahead of Chelsea. But the phrase "9 easy points for Arsenal" has me holding my breath.

    Why is Gus Johnson announcing soccer? Does he know anything about it, or is it just a shameless attempt on Fox's part to expand interest in their coverage by importing the voice of a more popular sport?

    I love Gus, but I'd rather listen to a soccer guy. One of the things I love about British broadcasters is that they have a deep lexicon of phrases and witticisms they can casually work into the commentary.
