While it doesn’t seem likely that they will go for the trophy, there’s every possibility that they will clinch the UCL spot by the end of the season, if they keep up with their brilliant performances.

This may have serious consequences on the team, given that a good number of their in-form players like Emile Smith-Rowe and Bukayo Saka are youngsters, who still need to be given instructions every now and then.
