The Premier League has been as exciting as ever this season

We are past the midway point of this crazy season of English football, and apparently, many people have lost interest in the so-called "title race".

With Manchester City going on a spree of 19 consecutive wins, putting all the other teams to the sword and opening a 12 point lead at the top, the title seems all but sealed.

Meanwhile, realistic fans of the other clubs have already shifted their hopes to the next season, with a top-four finish seemingly being good enough for this season.

However, there is stiff competition for these remaining three slots, with 6-7 teams vying for them.

Here are the predictions for the teams that will finish in the top 6:

#6 Arsenal FC (6th Place)

Arsenal v Chelsea - Premier League
Arsenal's troubles are expected to continue way beyond this season

With the kind of form, Arsenal is in, and the kind of squad troubles they face currently, a 6th place finish would be an achievement to be proud of, even if it's not.

Alexis Sanchez's departure seems imminent and with Mesut Ozil having just 6 months left on his contract, the club risks losing him on a free transfer.

With their current lack of ambition, it would be very difficult for them to hold on to any coveted player. Again, the exodus of players looks unending with Theo Walcott having forced a move away from the Gunners to Everton.


Thus, to remain competitive, Arsenal fans would be hoping that their club manages to sign suitable replacements to in the January transfer window.

If not, it wouldn't be a shocker if Burnley or Leicester City finish ahead of them. Also, their best bet for Champions League football next season would be going all the way in the Europa League, which seems like an uphill task.

With Arsenal already knocked out of the FA Cup, lifting the Carabao Cup is their one last chance of lifting a trophy. Expect the "Wenger Out" chants to get louder and more pervasive.

Expected Points Tally: 60-65
