Arsenal have ended their winning run, keeping the Premier League title still at arm’s length. They are among the other top teams struggling to catch Liverpool and Manchester City.
Liverpool defeated Cardiff City 4-1, with goals from Salah (10′), Mané (66′, 87′) and Shaqiri (84′). This took them to the top of the table with 26 points.
It was then the job of the other top teams to keep in reach. Chelsea, without Hazard even playing, crushed Burnley 4-0 to reach 24 points. Morata, Barkley, Willian and Loftus-Cheek were all on the scoresheet.
Arsenal was meant to continue their winning run, which was 11 games strong, to remain on the same points as the Blues. However, their busy game schedule had clearly caught up with them.
The Gunners drew 2-2 with Crystal Palace after foolishly conceding two penalties! They ended their own winning streak and are now 4 points away from the top of the table because of it.
Manchester City humbled Tottenham with a single goal from Mahrez in the 6th minute. Not only did City catch up to Liverpool in points, they went top of the table on goal difference while keeping Spurs outside of the top four.
Tottenham are not even the worse off. Manchester United are down at 8th place, and this is after having defeated Everton 2-1.
The title race has been highly thought to be a competition between Liverpool and Manchester City. However, could other teams prove that this is not the case?
