And then there were three: Part One

30 April 2014, 10:43

Fair enough, Brendan Rodgers may have faltered with his singular, attack minded approach to the match against Chelsea at the weekend – especially when one considers that Jose Mourinho applied the same tactics against Manchester City at the Etihad a few games ago and succeeded.

All that said, Liverpool maintain their position at the Premier League’s summit and have only two games to play against Crystal Palace and Newcastle. These matches may yet prove the undoing of Liverpool’s title tilt as Newcastle United always make for exciting opposition on Merseyside, while Crystal Palace will a) seek to avenge the loss to Manchester City, and b) Tony Pulis has simply been a revelation for Palace since assuming the reigns in November 2013.

Crystal Palace also claimed three points against Cheslea at Selhurst Park in March this year, and will be keen to prove, like Stoke City, that they are capable of taking points off the big teams.

Manchester City, though favorites now to claim the league title for the second time in three seasons, will still be thoroughly examined by Everton, Aston Villa and West Ham. Given that Villa now find themselves in the thick of the relegation battle, and City have already come unstuck against Sunderland who are in a similar position, will make matters interesting.

Everton, meanwhile, are unlikely to make life easy for City at Goodison Park on Saturday, meaning that the Premier League title is still up contention for the three top clubs.

This is my examination of each title contender’s remaining matches:

Everton vs Manchester City:

City travel to Goodison Park on Saturday evening to take on Everton who have been derailed somewhat in their chase for a top-four finish. Roberto Martinez’s team have been in fine fettle this season and have won eight of their last ten games, but two losses in their last three may have served to dent their confidence ahead of the clash with Man City.

Martinez though has proved a fine manager able to extract the best from his players in the face of adversity, and is likely to have a full-strength squad to choose from as Leighton Baines has returned from injury, Romelo Lukaku is a perennial nightmare for defenses, while Steven Naismith and Kevin Mirallas have also been in good scoring touch.
