With the FA Cup taking centre stage this weekend we have a full list of Premiership games on offer mid week. After the past few weeks it seems clear that Chelsea will now take stopping in their bid for the title. Manchester City have well and truly fallen off the rails and it’s hard to see anyway back for them. So many issues of course to be decided at the bottom as well. A busy night tonight.
Manchester City v Leicester
In effect City are now really eight points off the lead held by Chelsea. Five points behind and Chelsea have a game in hand it looks all over if you ask me. I tipped City to retain the title and at one stage they battled back from being eight behind to draw level before losing out once more. Two Premier league wins back to back was followed by the Champions League defeat to Barcelona and then of course the loss at Liverpool. Things are not going great at City and the fans are beginning to turn their anger against the manager. The buck does stop with him but the players too have a certain responsibility. This evening those same players will take three points you would think at home to bottom side Leicester.
In their last 21 games Leicester have lost fifteen out of 21 games and City have only three wins in eight league games in 2015. Despite the poor form of Vincent Kompany City to win with something to spare.
Newcastle v Man United
