Yeah, thatís the other worry. Chelsea lose this and Liverpool have two games in hand on them (nt)
They lose this, they could also lose to Leicester. Then theyíll have to win the last one just before the CL Final. Itís not likely, but not totally impossible - for Liverpool to get past them ;-))
They're nine points ahead of us with three games to play (including this one). If they win just one then we'd need to win ALL of our remaining games and claw back an 18 goal deficit. Catching Chelsea ain't happening.
But yeah...Arsenal could easily pip us to 8th, still. A win here would lift them above us on GD and then they've got Palace (a) and Brighton (h) to play. We'd have two games in hand but you'd think we'd probably still need to win at least two and probably three of our last four. Which is unlikely. An Arsenal defeat, on the other hand and we probably only need one or two wins.
