The Great Debate: Who is going to win the Premier League?

The Great Debate: Who is going to win the Premier League?

The Premier League title race between Manchester City and Liverpool was established before the season even started, with punters simply guessing between the two for the title, and it was then a matter of which order the top six will finish. With so few points being dropped at all, the five between Liverpool and Spurs looks significant.

"We had two draws in a row and that didn't feel that good", said Wijnaldum.

For the first time since around Christmas, following that mauling of Chelsea, I'm finally, cautiously confident Pep Guardiola's men will clinch the Premier League title.

Liverpool have a history of letting things slip and their trips to Old Trafford and Goodison Park now have added narrative.

Instead they have ground out results - in the league, at least - and made it four wins from four in Kane's absence on Sunday when they saw off Leicester 3-1 with goals from Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-Min.

City meanwhile, have the Manchester derby just four days after the Champions League last 16 second leg, travel to their bogey side Crystal Palace and host Tottenham.

Manchester City are practically choking on their own confidence.

He said the government would take "determined" steps after investigators complete their work and called for speedy urban renewal. Turkey's president has visited the scene of an apartment building collapse in Istanbul as the death toll increased to 17.

The Guinean midfielder's struggles since his arrival at Anfield have been well-documented but he was class against the Cherries, making more tackles (seven) and ball recoveries (12) than any other player on the pitch.

Despite Liverpool playing some brilliant stuff and deservedly racing ahead at Christmas, for me the victor will be Manchester City.

"But I don't think it was because of the Champions League".

The performance against a Bournemouth side who have now lost nine away matches in succession and have 13 defeats in the last 18 matches in all competitions showed a return to the high-energy pressing game and clinical counter-attacking which has been so successful for Liverpool.

It will be because of these games (and squad depth) that they are not champions this season and that will be a shame. We have to give everything in every game and in the end see where we are.

Their game plan is so relentless and they play with such huge confidence, a slight wobble really wont affect them as much as it will Liverpool.

"In terms of the players, we've not seen any difference in any of the staff and that feeds into the players and we've not changed".
