Liverpool has game in hand, but City are favorites to win the league
A few weeks back Liverpool had a chance to increase the gap of points to seven points with Manchester City. Nevertheless, the reds drew two back to back games, first against Leicester City and second against West Ham United.
City, on the other hand, after a defeat against Newcastle United, went on to defeat Arsenal 3-1 following with a 2-0 victory against Everton. Moreover, their 6-0 win against Chelsea last night clearly showed everybody, why they are favorites to win the title this year.
Also, the Champions League is starting tomorrow and that will show which side is going to be the title winners this year. The Reds are going to face Bayern Munich in the round of 16 while the Citizens are playing against Schalke 04.
So, looking at the fixtures, we can clearly see that Liverpool is going to be under pressure. This double pressure of performing well in two leagues will most probably hinder the Reds chances of winning the Premier League.
Chelsea’s drop-in performance benefitted Arsenal and Manchester United
At the starting of Matchweek 27, Chelsea were at the fourth position while Arsenal were on fifth and United were below them in the sixth position. Nevertheless, Arsenal defeated Huddersfield while United thrashed Fulham 3-0 in an away game. This victory pushed the Red Devils to the fourth position with a one-point gap with Chelsea.
The Blues were playing the Citizens away from home and most of us knew that they are going to lose this encounter. However, none of us imagined this badly. A 6-0 defeat last night to City made Chelsea slipped down to the sixth position. Because of having fewer goals difference in comparison to the Gunners.
Maurizio Sarri’s side have to buckle up because both Arsenal and United can’t be taken lightly. As they both have a quite good talent in their side and are performing well. So, at this point, if the Blues lose one more game. Then it will be a huge boost to both the rivals. While Chelsea might lose on the Champions League spot for the second consecutive season.
