The Premier League championship fight continues, with Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea all vying for the trophy this season. Although Manchester City are ten points ahead of Chelsea and nine points ahead of Liverpool, there is still a chance that City may miss out on the Premier League championship this season.
Pep Guardiola and his players were held to a disappointing stalemate by Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday. That draw instilled optimism in the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool to redouble their efforts in the championship hunt. Chelsea thrashed Tottenham Hotspur, while Liverpool took all three points from Crystal Palace.
Having said that, here are several reasons why Chelsea may still finish ahead of Manchester City in the Premier League championship fight.
Chelsea's schedule is more favorable than that of Liverpool and Manchester City. From February through April, the Blues will play Crystal Palace, Burnley, Newcastle, Norwich, Brentford, and Southampton.
On the other side, Liverpool will play Leicester City, Burnley, West Ham, Brighton, and Manchester United, while the Citizens will face Brentford, Norwich, Tottenham, Everton, and Manchester United.
Secondly, there is Chelsea's formation shift. After a 1-1 draw with Tottenham on midweek, Thomas Tuchel opted to switch to a more forward shape against them. The configuration allowed the Blues to move to a front four anytime they had the ball. When the Blues are not in possession, they will establish a strong four-man midfield block. I believe that this new formation will enable the team to attack more aggressively throughout the remainder of the season.
