Liverpool is unlikely to finish in top 4 as Andy Carroll has failed to fire and Gerrard's injury has stretched too long. Suarez and reds will appeal against the ban but they'll get little relief in the best case scenario. Chelsea will lose Drogba and Kalou during CAF and will face many difficulties to replace them as Torres has yet to find his form and Mata can't replace strikers. If anyone dared to doubt role of Drogba in Chelsea's success then they should have got their answer in the past month. Arsenal will only improve because their early season problems were related with loss of players and bad atmosphere created by those much hyped transfers. Gunners have done very well and they deserve all credit for silencing their critiques. Gunners may not add a few players in the transfer window but Wenger has a lot of experience. Spurs will also lose Adebayor during CAF but they still have a large squad to replace him. There is no doubt that both teams from Manchester will finish in top 4 positions. The race will be among Spurs, gunners and blues and will be very tough. Form of first half of the season is not a guarantee for the second half.
