This years title race is closer then any other past season. With Liverpool leading the table, 2nd place Manchester City is just 4 points behind them and 3rd place Tottenham 6 points behind!! Last year at this time Manchester City, who were first, were 15 points ahead second place Manchester United. Lets go over the Premier Leagues current top 3 and their chances of winning.
Liverpool– Liverpool are currently first and definitely deserve to be. Before their last game against Manchester City they were yet to experience a loss. Ever since Jürgen Klopp took over Liverpool have been climbing the table every season. Klopp has made several changes in the team that have changed the name of Liverpool. One of them being the transfer of Mohamed Salah. Salah ended last year as the Premier League’s top scorer with an impressive 32 goals in 36 games. With Klopp’s mentality and Salah’s goal scoring abilities Liverpool have a serious chance in winning their first ever Premier League title.
Manchester City- The current Premier League title holders are looking to win the league twice in a row. Something that hasn’t been managed to do since Manchester United won it three times in a row through 2007 to 2009. The Manchester City team is full of international super stars, Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, David Silva but probably the biggest star the team has is Sergio Agüero. The Argentine striker has been scoring goals after goals ever since his arrival to Manchester in 2011. He is currently the top scoring Foreign player in Premier League history and scored in the last second of the game that clinched Manchester City’s first ever Premier League title in 2012. With the leadership of coach Pep Guardiola Manchester City is still in the race for the Premier League title.
Tottenham Hotspur- Tottenham have managed to be in the the top 4 for 3 straight seasons. With their last league title coming back in 1961 they are hoping to change that this year. Being just 6 points behind first place Tottenham have been closing the gap slowly over the past couple of games. The Partnership of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have been deadly this season with a combined total of 22 goals! Tottenham have been showing their power with multiple wins over decent opponents but if they would like to win the title they will have to improve their form even more. They have been losing games that they shouldn’t be losing and barely winning games with teams that are not even close to the top 6. Mauricio Pochettino’s side has a small chance in winning the league if they keep on coughing up point to teams they shouldn’t be.
