It was at first thought that the title race this season will involve Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United, but it seems that it may be a three-horse race after all.

Manchester United have slipped out of the title race, with Chelsea leading the pack, and Liverpool and Manchester City following behind.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has given verdict on the title race and insists that it’s too early to say if it’s going to be a three-horse race or if other teams could come back into it.

“Maybe, maybe not. We are just focused on us and we know what it takes,” Tuchel said.

“Like I said many times, Liverpool and City set the standards during the last four or five years and they show how consistent you have to be to collect points in this league which seems to me a fantastic effort what they did.

“The title race was between the two of them, it’s on us to challenge them. It is on everyone else to join the race.

“I’m sure there are a lot of teams out there that are hungry for points. There is no prediction from me on how this thing ends, on who is involved.

“We are almost through October only. November is coming. Looking at our table and fixtures in December and January, there is so much to play for.

“There is so much needed in terms of focus, concentration and consistency. That’s all I can answer.”
