Manchester City remain EPL favourites despite 5 point deficit over Liverpool



With a goal packed weekend, we take a look at how the results have affected the Premier League standings.

Still sitting tight at the top of the table, Liverpool added another result to their winning streak in their 2 -1 win against Chelsea. With a full set of six out of six games going in their favour since the season began, Jurgen Klopp’s men seem to be determined to finish the season in top spot, with their odds to be crowned champions being slashed.

However, last season’s champions aren’t going to give up their fight to be crowned winners. After their unbelievable 8 – 0 win against Watford on Saturday, Manchester City certainly aren’t looking to sit back and let Liverpool run away with the title. Pep Guardiola’s side are still in with a chance, with plenty of opportunities left before the season ends.

However, with a 5 point gap after six games, they may need to rely on Liverpool slipping up if they are going to sit atop of the table when it really matters.

At the other end of the table, Watford sit at rock bottom after the thrashing by Man City at the weekend. With only 2 points, they are a firm relegation favourite, followed by Wolves who have also yet to add a win to the scoreboard.

Previously tipped to go down, Sheffield United and Burnley are proving everyone wrong by occupying the top of the table.

Unsurprisingly, Sergio Aguero leads the race for the top goal scorer after adding another to his total this weekend, making it 8 goals currently under his belt.

However, Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham could certainly be worth a punt with his 7 goals making him hot on Aguero’s tail.

Norwich’s Teemu Pukki is also a surprise addition to the leader board, with his 6 goals placing him in third place, just ahead of Arsenal’s Aubameyang.

So with the tables bound to change before season end, who will you be betting on taking the league?
