We have heard about the legendary octopus which could accurately predict football games; especially the world cup. It wasn’t always accurate, but most of the time, it was spot- on.

Well, if the story of the octopus is anything to go by, then Chelsea is going to stay top of the league till the end…not that that wasn’t going to happen anyway.

In a rather unusual match up, Goal decided to bring the top 6 teams in England together, and pitch them against each other in what you could call a mock Premier League race. Represented by 6 snails, the top 6 teams in England slugged it out in a race of snails. According to the organisers, the idea wasn’t only to entertain, but to also see what team would finish top. Now, here’s the interesting bit, current EPL leaders, Chelsea turned out the eventual winners of the competition, while the other 5 followed, just like in the actual competition. It was a very weird one to think up, especially seeing how slow snails can be, but hey, I’m only interested in the final result, and that is the fact that we were the winners there too. I mean, if we’re running away with the title in real life and in the snail Kingdom, it can only mean one thing, isn’t it? This season is ours, even snails know it!
