Tuesday's match at Stamford Bridge will help us answer the Premier League's most pressing question: Does anyone actually want to finish in fourth place?
Chelsea currently hold England's last UEFA Champions League spot, leading Tuesday opponents -- and London rivals -- Arsenal by a whopping 10 points. Yet, the Blues' grip on fourth place is tenuous at best, as they have not won consecutive league games since November 9. Tuesday begins a four-match stretch in which Chelsea play Arsenal, third-place Leicester City, fifth-place Manchester United and eighth-place Tottenham Hotspur. It has the potential to be the Blues' season-defining stretch.
Arsenal, meanwhile, are still struggling for form under new manager Mikel Arteta. They're unbeaten in their last three Premier League matches, but the Gunners drew Crystal Palace and Sheffield United in their last two. Qualifying for the Champions League could be too tall of a task, but Arsenal absolutely need to win away from home Tuesday if they're to have any hope of pulling it off.
