Arsenal and Manchester City stayed in the top two places this week-end as Birmingham did not have a game. The chasing pack are further behind and struggling to keep up the pace.
With Birmingham City having no game, Arsenal opened a five points gap on Blues to consolidate their Champions League and title credential while City’s home draw against Reading gave them a two points cushion over Blues. The League is clearly a three tier League and the chasing pack is already quite far from the front two with Chelsea already eight points behind Arsenal and five points behind City. Liverpool are one point behind Chelsea, while Reading and Bristol are now trailing Chelsea by two points.
Man City 1 Reading 1
Chelsea 1 Liverpool 0
Bristol 0 Arsenal 4
The three horses race for the Champions League places could turn into a two horses race next week-end as Arsenal will be at home to Birmingham. Manchester City will be away to Liverpool and will be looking to push the Reds further away from the Champions League race.
