Are Manchester City Still In The Race For Premier League Title?

Are Manchester City Still In The Race For Premier League Title?

The race for this season’s Premier League title seems to be over considering Liverpool’s current form. The Reds have dropped just two points so far this season having played 22 matches (21 wins and one draw).

The Reds have been awesome since the start of the season and they are very much on track to win their first Premier League title since 1996. The question is — can Manchester city spoil their show just as they did last season? Returning back actions this weekend, the Reds play host to Manchester United at the Anfield and you can one of the listed options on our football prediction partner before going out on your bets this weekend!

A quick flashback to last season, Jurgen Klopp’s men were at the top of the table as at January 2019, seven points ahead of the Etihad outfits who were in third position with 47 points.

Many pundits and Premier League followers as noted by gooner news began to write off Pep Guardiola’s men in the race for the title due to the Reds’ deadly form in front of goal.

Surprisingly, the Etihad outfits turned things around as they picked up every available point, while Liverpool failed to maintain their form.

We all had to wait till the last day of the season to know the winner as Manchester City beat the Merseyside club to the title. Can they repeat such feat this season? Only time will tell.

Struggling Leicester City

Meanwhile, Leicester City are currently struggling to maintain their place in the race for a top-four finish. The foxes started the season on a very bright note as they suffered only two defeats in their first 17 league matches of the season (2 defeats, 3 draws and 12 wins)

Unfortunately, Brendan Rodgers men are currently not in their best form having lost three of their last five games. They now occupy the third position behind Manchester City and Liverpool.

Many football fans attached the Foxes recent dip in form to Wilfred Ndidi’s absence due to injury. The Nigerian defensive midfielder provided a great shield for the back-four prior to his injury as he won many tackles at the middle of the pitch.

The King Power outfits must find a quick and perfect replacement for the injured midfielder if they must survive the intense competition for a top-four finish.

United’s January Transfer Plan

As for Manchester United’s performance at the ongoing transfer window, the Red Devils are yet to complete new signing despite being linked with top players.

Having lost Erling Haaland to Borussia Dortmund, the former Premier League winners are reportedly interested in RB Leipzig’s young striker Timo Werner, and they are ready to launch an exciting offer for his services amidst Jurgen Klopp’s interest.

Premier League’s Must Watch Match

As we look forward to the League’s match-day 23 fixtures, we take a look at the must-watch game for all Premier League fans: Liverpool vs. Manchester United

Liverpool are undoubtedly the best Premier League side this season having gone unbeaten in 22 matches. The Reds narrowly defeated Tottenham 1-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium despite José Mourinho’s defensive approach.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will expect the same challenge from the Red Devils when both sides meet at Anfield.

As for the Red Devils, Solskjaer’s men surely know that they need to be in their best form to stop Liverpool from picking maximum points.

The Old Trafford outfits have won three of their last six matches, and they will hope to get one over the record-breaking Liverpool side on Sunday. Are the Red Devils worth backing as a favourite this weekend? Decided your fate on football prediction website Forecastr!
