Following Leicester’s 2-2 draw with West Brom, it felt like two points dropped for Claudio Ranieri’s team. But 24 hours later that result looks more like a point gained – with the rest of the top four all losing.
It leaves the Premier League table looking like anything is possible.
Defeats for Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City aren’t the only reason the table has us excited – Manchester United’s late winner against Watford also puts pressure on City from the other side, with the two Manchester clubs now level on points. The Citizens still have a game in hand over their rivals, but it gives an extra dimension to the Manchester derby on March 20.
The focus may currently be on Tottenham losing, but the three points picked up by West Ham has left them just a point off the top four as well. They play Stoke on the final day of the season, a fixture that at the beginning of the season probably looked like a nothing game, but now could have real significance on which English teams feature in Europe’s top competition next season.
And, we might be pushing it here, but Liverpool, Southampton – even Chelsea – surely can’t be written off just yet? We’ve all learned this season that trying to predict results in this league is futile, and suddenly Chelsea sitting eight points off fourth with 10 games remaining looks not impossible.
Roll on the final ten games.
