Can anyone catch up to Manchester City in the English Premier League? Right now, pundits everywhere feel no one will be able to despite plenty of season being left.
They made quite the statement on Sunday with an absolutely head-turning 4-1 victory over Liverpool at Anfield. It marked the third straight loss at Anfield for LFC, marking their worst stretch at home since 1963. So, how does the top of the table look following that impressive win for MCFC?
Manchester City is in first place of the EPL table and looking great
It's been an incredible year thus far for Pep Guardiola and Manchester City. In that 4-1 win over Liverpool, Ilkay Gundogan scored twice, while Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden also found the back of the net.
As of this writing, City are No. 1 in the league with its 50 points, five clear of Manchester United. City also has a game in hand. It looks tough for anyone to catch up to them.
Manchester United sits in second but continues to drop crucial points
It's been a far better year than expected for Manchester United, but the team continues to drop points at home. This will come back to haunt them if they don't catch up to City in the standings.
Just recently, United lost at Old Trafford to Sheffield United 2-1. Then over the weekend, they led 3-2 against Everton late, but let them even things up at 3-3 with the final play of the match. Those five points right there is something fans across the globe want to forget about. Brutal.
Leicester City is having another year to remember
While they might not be huge threats to win the title as of now, Leicester City is in third place and the Foxes continue to turn heads with some brilliant performances. That will happen when you have Jamie Vardy and James Maddison powering the attack.
LCFC indeed sits in third with its 43 points, seven behind Man City and two behind Man United.
Liverpool has crashed back down to earth this year
What in the world is going on with Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool FC? After winning their first EPL title in 30 years, the Reds have not looked like themselves one bit this season. Injuries have really hurt them, highlighted with Virgil van Dijk being out for the year with a torn ACL.
Regardless, LFC is in fourth place with 40 points, a mind-boggling 10 behind Man City. Liverpool needs to wake up and fast. If their poor play continues, they very well could finish outside the top four.
