The Title Race

The English premier league title race is getting tight as each team tries to bag the three crucial points in order to stay strong in the title chase.

As the league enters its second leg,much is expected as the top teams are only separated with few points which leaves the title open for the strong to take.Arsenal have been consistent on the top spot  two times  being overtaken by Manchester City and liverpool.

The top teams have had their shares of misfortune in the past matches with Arsenal suffering a devastating 6-3 defeat to their title challengers Manchester City.

Despite the heavy loss,the gunners have shown maturity in their defending in contrast to their past seasons that they used to play an open game all the time.

Wenger is equally happy with his side and he hopes for a silverware this season especially with his record breaking  Signing of German player maker Mesut Ozil who has helped them a great deal.

Manchester City on the hand have had away match disappointments but very impressive  form at Etihad that has seen them bank in many goals than any other team so far. They however face a tough challenge as they take on their fellow title contenders in their away matches.

The Citizens are described as the serious title contenders as their Talisman Kun Aguero continue to cause fear to any team’s custodian.Not forgetting their dangerous packed midfield of Yaya toure,Silva and Fernadinho.

Liverpool is another  team that has really impressed with premier league man of the moment Luiz Suarez scoring goal after goal.Though controversially loosing to Chelsea and Manchester City in a row, they still show determination towards winning the race.

Chelsea are just there though they seem dangerous too,they have managed to stay on top and their recent win over Liverpool has given them confidence.

The title defenders have  not have a good season altogether but they are slowly catching up with others,at one time Manchester united were 13 points adrift of Arsenal but the gap has since reduced.Many people blamed Moyes for united’s predicaments saying he is the major contributor to their losses,comparing him with Sir Alex.

Tottenham remain shaky even after buying good players still no notable results.They now struggle to remain relevant at the top ten.

I predict a  lot of surprises in the upcoming second leg fixtures,but all in all, as it is said football is anyone’s game.Time will tell.
