Liverpool and Manchester City are well positioned in the first division this season as both teams compete for first place. Behind them, the remaining four big six teams compete for the last two places in the Champions League.
With the two places apparently occupied by different teams each week, we guess who will be the winner of the race. And that's what experts Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher of Sky Sports have tried to do, summing up the odds for each of the four teams.
Perhaps to illustrate how close this race is, Neville and Carragher shared their thoughts on how the season will unfold.
Speaking on Monday night football, Neville said cited by The mirror: "I'm watching Tottenham matches, I have to say it's obviously the one [vs Manchester City] that stands out but if you look ArsenalYou said the games were the best because they do not play against the best teams.
"The problem is that they play four away games, Arsenal, and are shocked away from home, "said Neville.
Carragher supported the former Man Utd player saying: "Arsenal has better results than Chelsea and Man United but I would be surprised if Arsenal wins more than one game away. "
Neville added, "For now I think Tottenham will finish third because they have all four home games and they are the ones who, I think, can accumulate the points, "which the former Liverpool defenseman accepted.
Uncertainty has swept the two experts over the choice of fourth place, continued Carragher: "Really, I have no idea of the other three, because in some ways you can not trust them.
"If I had to call one, I would go with Manchester United. "Somewhat surprised by his colleague's support for his old rivals, Neville simply replied," I will agree with him! "
Doubt in the minds of these two football experts shows how close this race will be and suggests that it will go up to the wire. The four teams in question are all in action this weekend. The choice of the meeting will be Chelsea's visit to Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
