Some teams have long since been out of the running in this season’s Premier League. Yet things are quite tight at the top of the table. Liverpool are currently in the top spot, with 69 points to their name. Out of 28 matches played, they’ve won 21 of them, drawn six, and lost just one.
Which teams are snapping at their heels? Will Liverpool manage to hang on in that position or is there still lots to play for? We think the latter will prove to be the case. This is borne out by Manchester City’s position in second place. They are just one point behind Liverpool, having won 22 matches – one more than the top team. However, they’ve been let down by four losses against two draws. Of course, Man City are defending champions, so they will be hoping they can raise their game enough to swoop in and take the title for a second year. Last year’s title was their third, so perhaps they’ll make it four this year.
In third place is Tottenham, with 20 wins, eight losses, and 60 points to show for it. Arsenal and Manchester United round out the top five spots with 56 and 55 points respectively. Chelsea is just two points behind them in sixth place. Beyond that, none of the remaining teams look to have a real shot at the title. We suspect it will likely be one of the top five teams still in the competition.
Next up, there are 10 matches to be played over the weekend of 2nd and 3rd March. A further 10 matches will be played the following weekend, and other matches have been booked in (aside from a few postponements) through until the middle of May.
Liverpool will be hoping this is their lucky season. They’ve won 18 titles in the past, but none since 1990 in England. Could this be the year they get back to those winning ways? Their performance thus far certainly looks impressive. Many people would probably feel confident in placing a wager on the team and hoping they can pick the right result.
