Prem going down to the wire

26 Apr

Man, talk about an exciting way to finish the season.  This is how every season needs to be with the title challenge going back and forth.  Ideally, the title will be decided on the final day of the season in dramatic fashion.  One slip up from either Chelsea or United could end the dream at this point.  It’s the same way in the race for fourth too, one slip up and you’re done.  Who’s going to get it done under pressure? 

The race for the title is going down to the wire.  Chelsea leads the way by the slimmest of margins, only one point.  The Blues sit on 80 points while Manchester United is hot on their heels with 79.  United plays Sunderland and Stoke in their final two games while Chelsea plays away to Liverpool and hosts Wigan in the season finale.  Two wins for Chelsea would give them the title.

In addition to the title challenge, the race for fourth has picked up as well.  Tottenham (64), Manchester City (64), Aston Villa (63) and Liverpool (62) are all within two points of each other.  Currently, Tottenham holds the fourth and final Champions League spot.  Both City and Spurs have three games remaining, while the Reds and Villa have two each.  However, City has games against both Spurs and Villa.  Liverpool’s game against Chelsea could have implications on both races.

At the bottom of the table, Portsmouth has been relegated since forever.  They will be joined by Burnley after their 4-0 loss to Liverpool at the weekend.  Although not official, it’s looking like Hull will be the third team relegated.
