EPL also coming down to the wire

Just when I was ready to hand the EPL Title over to Man U. they drop 3 of their last six and now the Gunners are just five points behind with eight matches to play. In all probability they just need two more wins to wrap the title up but they do still have some work ahead of them in the form of 3 matches with Chelsea, one with City, and one with Arsenal. It’s certainly not a given and with their remaining schedule equally divided between home and away, but right now the home matches with Everton and Blackpool could loom larger than those with the Blues and the Gunners.

The race for the title is not the only focus of the EPL as we close out March but it may not even be the best one as the dotted line separated the tournament sides from the rest is also blurred. City is just one point behind Chelsea, who as we mentioned has a very tough remaining schedule and Spurs are just behind them waiting to falter at 4-points behind in the fifth spot.

However the most hotly contested battles is the one to avoid regulation as eight clubs are within three points of each other starting with Rovers in the 13th spot (33points )going all the way down to Wigan in the 20th place(30). In-between are Villa, Blackpool, West Brom, West Ham, Wanderers, and Birmingham City. Rovers were not on the hot seat until they went winless in their last six with four losses to drop into the mire with the rest. West Ham and Wanderers have come up with the most points out of the last six matches with 10 and it may take a repeat performance over the next six to assure a place at the table next season. So much is subject to change over the next week so let us know your thoughts here and in any of the quick links.
