Saturday’s action in the Barclays Premier League saw five games being played all over England’s top flight football. With just ten gameweeks remaining, the action is heating up at both ends of the table. Chelsea pulled four points clear at the zenith as Arsenal blew up their title hopes losing 0-1 to Stoke City. Liverpool though were clinical, dispatching Southampton by 3-0 while Newcastle and Everton recorded wins too. Here are the three talking points from the weekend.
It’s Chelsea’s title to lose:
Jose Mourinho’s men went four points clear at the top of the Premier League with a comfortable 3-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage. The Blues took advantage of Arsenal’s loss at the Britannia and as by the looks of the fixtures it’s for Chelsea to lose their firm grip on the title. Manchester City who are due to play on Tuesday against Manchester United at Old Trafford can only be at par with Chelsea if they win their games in hand. Chelsea haven’t been at their clinical best this season, their defence leaking goals often while it has been a no show from their strikers, who have failed to hit the target more often than not. Chelsea’s only huge test would be Liverpool away at Anfield and if Mourinho can get the job done at Merseyside, the shining trophy may well be on its way to Stamford Bridge.
