Fifth place in the Premier League should eventually lead to a place in the Champions League, but Tottenham are starting to complicate the situation when it comes to that position as well.

The team from north London had to settle for a point from the eastern part of the city, West Ham - Tottenham 1:1, in the 31st round of the Premier League.

Tottenham took the lead in the fifth minute by Brennan Johnson's goal, and he provided the home team with a point Kurt Zuma with a goal in the 19th minute.

Tottenham is now in fifth place in the table with 57 points, two less than Aston Villa in fourth place, while Manchester United could get closer to minus six if they win on Thursday against Chelsea.

Everton and Nottingham Forest won an important point, or all three in the fight for survival tonight.

The team from Liverpool reached a draw against Newcastle (1:1) in the 88th minute with a goal by Dominique Calvert-Luin from the penalty spot - before that, the "magpies" took the lead with a goal by Aleksander Isak after 15 minutes of play.

Nottingham Forest celebrated after five dry rounds, Nuna Espirita Santa's boys were better than Fulham (3:1) and regardless of the four points taken, they are again above the danger zone.

The Foresters took the lead in the 9th minute through Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Chris Wood doubled the lead in the 19th minute. The third goal for Forest was scored by Morgan Gibbs-White, while the only scorer for the London club was Tosin Adarabiojo.
