Everton dent Liverpool Premier League title hopes

The Premier League title race has heated up following Everton’s win over Liverpool in the Merseyside derby. Jurgen Klopp’s side ended the meeting at Goodison Park with a 2-0 loss, leaving the Reds three points behind league leaders Arsenal.

Manchester City are third in the table and are currently four points short of the Gunners. But the Citizens have played two fewer games, with their upcoming fixtures against Brighton and Nottingham Forest sure to see them challenge for the top spot. They will another chance for some silverware as they will face Manchester United in the FA Cup Final.

Chelsea meanwhile are recovering from their 5-0 thrashing by Arsenal which saw Arteta’s side humiliating the Blues. It marks the worst defeats for Chelsea in the Premier League era since they lost 6-0 to the Citizens in 2019. But this being a London derby and with the intense rivalry between the two, this will likely be more memorable for the club and its fans. 

At the other end of the table however sit Luton Town, Burnley, and Sheffield United in the relegation zone. Everton were in danger earlier in the season especially after the Toffees were docked ten points but have now recovered and sit a little more comfortably at 16th ahead of Forest.  

City will be fighting for a record fourth league title in a row, something that has never been achieved n the history of the English top flight and the trophy is not out of their hands just yet. With just four weeks to go, anything is possible.
