City and Liverpool Slip Up
Manchester City, genuine title contenders this season and Liverpool, 4th place candidate both lost 1-0 this weekend to Swansea and Sunderland respectively. City's away form of late has not been very convincing as they failed to win in 5 occasions in their previous 7 away games. Their lost in the hands of Swansea dealt a minor blow to their title charge as they are now 1 point adrift to Champions Manchester United with 10 more games to go. Statistics have shown that United are good at holding their nerves towards the end of the Premier League, so City would really have to up their level if they are to be crowned Champions this season.
Talking about Liverpool, disappointing is the only word to describe them. At 39 points only after 27 games, they now lie 7th in the Premier League table and most likely miss out on the crucial Champions League spot again following their 1-0 lost to Sunderland.
