Gary Neville believes Chelsea and Tottenham have a shot at the Premier League title this season. Jurgen Klopp reckons Frank Lampard’s side could well scupper Liverpool’s chances of retaining their crown, while Jose Mourinho has called Spurs “ponies” in the race.
Liverpool and Manchester City have dominated the top flight over the last three years but could this really be the season that their monopoly ends?
Plenty of football is left to play but with patterns emerging, injuries biting and several teams showcasing their credentials, it’s time for the Sky Sports writers to assess the top of the table.
Who looks the best bet for the title? Who’s got the edge in the top-four race? Read on for their verdicts.
Adam Bate: Third gear will still be enough for Liverpool
1. Liverpool 2. Man City 3. Chelsea 4. Tottenham
The gap has closed in the Premier League. The Covid-19 crisis coupled with injuries to key players saw Liverpool stutter in the opening weeks of the season. But look again at that Premier League table and there they are – level with Tottenham at the top of the table.
If this was Liverpool’s blip and still no team has more points, then the problem for the rest should be obvious. The champions are now the Premier League top scorers with 26 goals. Perhaps they will not be so defensively strong this season, but they will not need to be. The attack looks stronger. If they win the title by one point instead of 18 it is still enough.
