This year’s Premier League season has been one full of surprises and five months into the season the three front runners for the title are Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea. The latter two were expected to be in this position, but Arsenal have surprised their rivals with a solid title bid so far. With 16 league games left, there is a lot that can happen before the Premier League champion is crowned. At this stage, it is hard to say who out of these three teams have the best chance, but it seems as though it could go down to the wire. This article looks at the reason why each team will win the title, and why they will not.
Currently sitting at the top of the league, Arsenal have shown great form since the beginning of 2013. The signing of Mesut Özil galvanised the whole squad, giving them a lift and the belief to once again challenge for the title. After getting through a tricky Christmas period, the Gunners have won 16, drawn 3 and lost 3, giving them a total of 51 points. In the process they have the best defensive record in the league.
City have been in a rampant mood in recent weeks. They have won 16, drawn 2 and lost 4 for their 22 games giving them 50 points. In the process they have scored 63 goals, winning every single home game. Manuel Pelligrini has given his team a great degree of freedom, which they seem to be thriving from.
The return of Jose Mourinho in the summer gave many the belief that Chelsea would win the league this season. Chelsea have found a rhythm in recent weeks, and have come out of the inconsistent form that they showed earlier in the season. Jose Mourinho has come some way to finding his strongest XI, a team that will operate in the way that he wants his new Chelsea to play. The Blues have won 15, drawn 4 and lost 3, giving them 49 points.
