We have come to that point in the league where champions are decided. Not that the start of the league is irrelevant, but this point is usually tougher, because now, you have teams toughening up and trying to salvage something from their season. Not only will you have the big boys fighting harder for a Champions league place, at least, you also have smaller teams trying to get into Europe and get as far away from relegation waters as possible.
Chelsea currently sits 55 points at the top of the league, 7 better than Arsenal, and 9 clear off Liverpool who we play in our next league game. First off is Liverpool, then Arsenal comes next. The way I see it, these guys are some of the toughest opponents we have left to play in this campaign. Tottenham is already out of the way, so we have 3/4 of the big boys in the league to play still, but I think our next two will to a large extent help our run towards the title. Those games will be coming back to back, so I feel that they’ll be very influential to our season. Obviously, it won’t be easy, but I believe that if we win those games, then, we might as well celebrate the league title this early. We have a good record against Liverpool at Anfield, and for Arsenal, they aren’t doing so well at the moment. They won us the last time out, but ironically, that brought the best out of us. There’s also history counting against the Gunners. We have a better head to head record against them in recent years. Besides, we have an ‘arse’ to grind, I reckon.
The other teams we’ll face in the league, including the Manchester clubs are still far away. Besides, I’m not worried about them because we have won them in the past, and I’m sure we’ll repeat the feat. Even if it’s a draw we get from them, it should be enough, but for our next two upcoming fixtures, I’m confident we can win, and if we do, trust me, there’s nothing stopping us from lifting the league trophy in May.
