After this weekend’s results Manchester City are once again there in Premier League title race

After this weekend, there are only seven games remaining in this Premier League season. But as it stands after this weekend’s results, Manchester City is there again in the title race. It’s a position they know well as the pressure begins to rise over the final two months of the season.

Pep Guardiola has mentioned on multiple occasions this season about his team being ‘there’ in the title race. After winning 5 of the past 6 Premier League titles, the fact that the Manchester City squad keeps pushing for more success speaks volumes of the will and determination amongst the treble winners squad. Their bid for a fourth consecutive Premier League crown was aided this weekend by league leaders Liverpool dropping points today.

After City’s win against Crystal Palace yesterday and Arsenal’s win over Brighton, the pressure shifted to Liverpool to gain all three points against Manchester United. Jurgen Klopp’s side blinked first as they drew 2-all with Manchester United at Old Trafford today. The pendulum has swung in the title race, and now Mikel Arteta’s side has the advantage. If the Gunners win their remaining 7 games, they will lift the Premier League title.

But Liverpool’s draw has again opened the door for Manchester City to make another one of their trademark surges to glory. They now only sit one point behind Arsenal and Liverpool on the Premier League table. Although their title destiny is still out of their hands, Manchester City’s title rivals know that the world champions are breathing down their necks.

Pep Guardiola has made a point this season of reminding everyone that his team is there in the title race. Now, as the stakes and pressure rise in the coming weeks, Arsenal and Liverpool know they will have to be almost perfect to claim the Premier League title. Recent history suggests they will have no choice but to be. With Manchester City close enough, it is traditionally now when they make their move. If City do make a late season surge once again, it will be on City’s two title rivals to see if they can go the distance with Pep Guardiola’s juggernaut. The world champions are now well positioned to take advantage of any slips by Liverpool and Arsenal on the run home.

An enthralling title race took another turn today and has set the scene for an epic conclusion to this season.
