Race for 4th place hots up

After yesterdays defeat away at Hull, any distant hope Manchester City had clinged onto that they could win the league surely disappeared. They would have to win their 2 games in hand on current leaders Manchester United just to be 9 points behind with 13 games left, if Chelsea win later today, then they would be a further 2 points ahead of Man United with the same number of games played.

Of the other Top 4 finish candidates, Spurs and Villa played out a goalless draw at White Hart Lane. Earlier in the day Liverpool continued their surge on their ‘guaranteed’ 4th place finish with a well earned 1-0 win over Everton, while down to 10 men. Liverpool have now picked up 17 points from 21 over their last 7 games.

The online bookmakers seem to be taking Liverpool’s recent run of good form into consideration as they now have them as favourites at a best price of 13/10. Man City had been the favourites until recently, but have now drifted out to 7/5.
