It's close at the moment but remember City have won 11 games on the trot. If this continues it wont remain close for long

Wait 'til Feb when they have to play Spurs (Jose is Pep's nemesis), Liverpool (current champions) and Arsenal (beat City in the FAC SF last year) in a row.

City will win the league and the domestic cups.
Utd will be thrilled to finish in top 4 and Ole will get a statue.
Chelsea will have used 2 more managers come May
Spurs will finish 4th
Liverpool will come in 6th - behind the Toffee's.

City's to lose my opinion it's hard to keep the pace going that Liverpool nd City have been at for the last 3 years City dropped off it last year liverpool this year the rest are bit part players

Football such an awful divisive sport, you only have to look at any HYS on ANY team to see that. Dreadfully biased and bitter so called fans who take more pleasure from a rival winning than they do their own team winning.

Seriously, just check through comments and you'll see I'm 100% correct.

There's no loyalty by players or clubs, just entirely money based.

Sadly for me been a Leeds supporter I can only dream of us challenging for title at moment, but club rivalry aside, thanks to all those club's near top challenging for the trophy. It's much better as a spectacle to watch, than just one team been head and shoulders above the rest and running away with it, also it takes your mind off all the crap that's going on in the World.

Liverpool won't win. Last year they got lucky winning the asterisk title, but as soon as we are back to an uninterrupted season - hey ho they are back to 5th (and will be 7th if Spurs and Everton win their games in hand).

"uninterrupted season" every game is being played behind closed doors, teams are not at full strength for some games due to Covid or self isolation and games have been postponed and re-arranged for the same reasons, this isn't a "normal" season!

You also forget to mention that they got the 2nd highest points the season before and lost out on the title because citeh got the highest ever. Some could say that without the covid break they would have continued to dominate as since the break they have been ordinary

Only tight due to City's slow start and Liverpool hitting the proverbial wall. Give it a month and it will most likely be a procession for the former club unfortunately.

As an MUFC fan, I choose to be realistic about their title chances this year. City do have a stronger squad. Utd are almost there, and are a quality RW away from having a complete squad, with a few players that REALLY need to leave (JLingz/Jones etc). City 1st, Utd 2nd, not sure about the rest.

I definitely don't want to say "next year is our year", as I take nothing for granted.

Very true Naz. I think it’s definitely in city’s hands now. The Everton fans will be ecstatic that Pickford effectively destroyed Liverpool’s season, as well as VVD’s knee. His injury plus the others we’ve had have made it impossible. No team could win the title without any fit CB’s at the club.
City definitely hitting top form now. If we miraculously sign a CB this week we might have a chance...

Looks fairly straight forward to me. It could be a very close run race between Man City and Man United. If City get clear at the top they will not lose it from that point but if United are still in with a chance with half a dozen games to go they may well I have a feeling they would prevail. Leicester may also go closer than many people expect.

5% think West Ham will win the league, so I wouldn't take responses too seriously.

For light relief you could go on BBC news and read the HYS on Covid or brexit.

Then you'll realise sports fans aren't so bad.

Looks fairly straight forward to me. It could be a very close run race between Man City and Man United. If City get clear at the top they will not lose it from that point but if United are still in with a chance with half a dozen games to go they may well I have a feeling they would prevail. Leicester may also go closer than many people expect.

As much as I would love LCFC to win it or Villa, West Ham, Everton I have a feeling it will still be decided between LFC, MCFC and MUFC and on current form I have gone for MCFC as they seem to have found form at the right time, but both MUFC and LFC will have a big say.

Me too, reading comments like "it's all over" and "we can't be caught" was a bit premature and yet it will make it funnier if they don't go on to win it now!

I have seen plenty of that from the LFC fans so don't think they can claim much in the sympathy stakes. Should man up and beat Spurs. Let the football do the talking.

No they haven’t... They have basked in the joy of Liverpool’s slump in form just like LFC fans kindly enjoyed MUFCs slump when they were walking in.

This year's title race is a farce. Terrible referees trying to stop Liverpool from retaining the title.
Just look at those questionable refereeing decisions. Letting NEVARton and Brighton draw against Liverpool, and letting PenchestVAR Penited take so many penalties, and allowing Cheaty to score that offside goal against Villa before banning it.

This title race has never been so biased towards PenchestVAR.
Even a person who has never watched any football could see that the referees are making terrible decisions to favour PenchestVAR Penited and Cheaty, and to try to stop Liverpool from retaining the title.

Sack these biased referees before the Premier League becomes a laughing stock
