While the title race hots up, there is plenty of intrigue slightly further down. Finishing seventh may not be all that glorious, but Wolves and Watford are battling hard to secure it regardless.

Watford’s demolition of Cardiff ensured they moved into 7th, but it’s a tight battle between them and Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

The two teams have an identical record this season with 11 wins, seven draws and nine defeats apiece. Only the Hornet’s goal difference of plus four has them ahead by a nose.

A seventh-placed finish would represent a superb campaign for both of these teams. It will be fascinating to see who ends up winning this particular race.
