English Premier League: The Race for Second

English Premier League-The Race for SecondIt’s a race to the top in the English Premier League after this past weekend’s upsets. Can anyone touch Chelsea? Are the teams now vying for second place?

Chelsea has a comfortable six point league at 64 points and it looks like they’ll likely take their fourth English Premier League in 10 years. But there are a few others snapping at their heels.

Manchester City currently sits on 58 points, second place and in jeopardy of losing their position to other hopefuls. Man City still has quite a few games to close the gap with Chelsea.

There may be problems with defense for Man City, but we think they have a shot at the title. Under this pressure though, it looks like Chelsea does have a comfortable spot way up there.

The remaining games for Man City are against: West Brom (H), Crystal Palace (A), Manchester United (A), West Ham (H), Aston Villa (H), Tottenham (A), QPR (H), Swansea (A), Southampton (H).

Arsenal is only one point off of the second spot and the confident team is in the favorable position of already taking 5 English Premier League titles and know how to get there again.

Remaining games: Newcastle (A), Liverpool (H), Burnley (A), Sunderland (H), Chelsea (H), Hull (A), Swansea (H), Manchester United (A), West Brom (H)

Pay per head sportsbook favorites Manchester United are only two points off at 56 and this team has been able to add points in the past. English Premier League superstar Wayne Rooney has been performing well and this team has a solid chance to bump Man City out of the way and possibly overtake Chelsea.

The remaining games for Man U are against: Liverpool (A), Aston Villa (H), Manchester City (H), Chelsea (A), Everton (A), West Brom (H), Crystal Palace (A), Arsenal (H), Hull (A)

Livepool is not far away with 54 points and Liverpool has been riding on a new conviction to pull ahead in the English Premier League. Problem is at 10 points behind Chelsea this might be a bit of a stretch. Mario Balotelli has been more of a miss than goal and this certainly won’t help in their challenge.
