Manchester City has title advantage

It’s been a challenge to properly get a firm look at how the Premier League title race was going to shape up because Liverpool had more points and a match more played than Manchester City … until Wednesday. City’s makeup game with United went to the blue side of Manchester with a 2-0 win. Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane both scored on the night for the three points to give City a one-point lead. The title is close to potentially being theirs, while Manchester United’s top-four hopes are fading.

Chelsea had 22 shots and created dangerous chances all game long but could not beat Burnley in a 2-2 draw Monday. The Blues still managed to get back into the top four by a point, however. They went down early, came back to take a 2-1 lead through N’Golo Kante and Gonzalo Higuain, but that lead lasted 10 minutes as Burnley got a point with Ashley Barnes’ equalizer. Kante picked up an injury, as did Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Chelsea failed to move into sole possession of third place. To make matters worse, Hudson-Odoi’s injury is a ruptured Achilles and his season is over.

Top-four race

City has the lead but Liverpool is right behind. Spurs and Chelsea are the favorites to finish in the top four now. The top four teams qualify for the Champions League.
