Everton are included here as the club is currently even with Arsenal on points and two behind Manchester United. The team has, however, played two more matches than those above them.
Even if Ronald Koeman’s side come out on top in this weekend’s Merseyside derby, the chances are slim that Everton will be able to sneak in to the top four. Following the Liverpool match, The Toffees face difficult trips to Manchester United on April 4th, West Ham on April 22nd and Arsenal on the last day of the season.
Also on the horizon is a visit from league leaders Chelsea on April 30th.
Regardless of where Everton do finish in the table, it has been an impressive season for the blue half of Liverpool.
