    Play Off for 3rd place?

    This weekend marks the possibility that the Premier League season could be extended with Chelsea and Arsenal, currently third and fourth in the league, facing the possibility of a play off to decide third

    Chelsea are currently 2pts, 2 goals scored better but one goal more conceded than Arsenal heading into the final set of games

    If Chelsea draw and Arsenal win by one goal but score exactly two more goals than Chelsea, then they will be equal on all stats and will have to face each other in a one off match to determine who finishes third in the Premier League and takes the automatic Champions League place

    So if Chelsea draw 1-1 with Everton and Arsenal beat Newcastle 3-2 we will have an extra match

    Could be a very interesting side plot

    I never even knew this was a possibility until the other day. Assumed it would go on head to head or something (what would happen if both games finished 0-0, I dont know ).

    Chelsea are off to the States on Sunday, and then its Internationals. Going to be tough to try and fit it in somewhere if its needed. They should just give it to whoever finished higher last season

    I read this today. Surprised that head to head's don't seem to count. Chelsea won both games I think didn't they?

    And he scores goals...!

    Chelsea would have to cancel their trip to the States.

    Yeah, I think Chelsea should get it for the head to head results. In a lot of countries, head to head counts more than goal difference.

    I don't think it will happen personally but even if it does can anyone really see Arsenal beating Chelsea and where would it be played? Wembley or would it have to be two legs?

    Neutral venue and one leg, so I'd guess Wembley since both teams are from London.

    White Hart Lane would be funnier

    They said they want it done as soon as possible after the season finishes but it won't be aloud next Saturday due to CL final (same reason Wigan were refused to play Arsenal tonight)

    It will probably all be academical as I can see Newcastle holding Arsenal

    Pretty much. Anything to sell out Wembley after all wouldn't be opposed to a playoff happening at all but doubt it will happen.plus head to head would have been a much better and quicker way to sort it all out

    The problem with Wembley is that it could be booked up, plenty of concerts there in May/June.

    I'd rather have the whole squad doing the Total Wipeout course, be so much better.

    and of course a logical place to hold an unexpected 39th fixture between two london clubs is.............Villa Park in Birmingham

    I know it's probably the closest big stadium outside of London and relatively quick to get to on train, but couldn't they have used West Ham or Spurs.

    West Ham and Spurs may have plans at the end of season(other events, ground improvements etc...) while Villa never refuse anything like this.

    They did use to hold the FA Cup Semi's there though.

    They should go to North American sports rules and have a best 7 series to decide.

    White Hart Lane.
    Arsenal vs Chelsea for third/fourth place.

    That would be amazing
