Canaries” continue to fight for the championship. However, now the position of the Londoners no longer look as rosy as a month ago. At the moment the team from the capital of England occupies second place in the standings. On the asset London team has 75 points.
The team from London is one point behind leading Manchester City. In addition, the Citizens still have a game in hand. Mikel Arteta’s side, who have been in the lead throughout the championship, will find it extremely difficult to compete for the gold medals.
Arsenal have been winless in their last four matches. “The Canaries drew with Liverpool (2-2), West Ham (2-2) and Southampton (3-3), and also lost to Manchester City (1-4). Only before that they were able to beat Leeds (4-1).
The Blues” are already frankly playing out this disappointing season. At the moment the team from London takes only twelfth place in the standings of the championship of England. The capital team has 39 points.
“Aristocrats” is only ten points ahead of the relegation zone. Of course, it does not threaten them, but the fact itself looks sad. A change of coach did not help either. Most recently, Frank Lampard replaced Graham Potter at the helm of the team from London.
Chelsea are currently on a five-game losing streak in all competitions. And the Londoners are without a win in eight meetings. The last time the team won on March 11 against Leicester (3-1).
Both teams are in crisis, so it is possible that they will play in a draw. That’s what we’ll bet on.
