Are Tottenham and Chelsea title contenders in Premier League?
As Liverpool and Manchester City continue to battle it out at the top of the summit of Premier League, many have ruled out the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea from the title race.
Spurs are currently third in the table, and they now find themselves six points behind leaders Liverpool. The North London side have made their best start in the Premier League history, but their impressive start has gone unnoticed due to even-more impressive starts from Liverpool and Manchester City. In any other season, this kind of form would have put Spurs right in the mix for the title race, but the top two sides have set altogether different standards this season.
League leaders Liverpool are yet to lose a league game this season while Spurs have already conceded four defeats. This statistic is enough to depict the gulf between Liverpool and Tottenham this season.
The same has been the case with Chelsea in the first half of the season. Undoubtedly, the Blues have exceeded expectations in their first season under Maurizio Sarri. They have picked up 37 points from their 17 games, and at this rate, they are set to finish the season with almost 83 points. They are also the only side to have defeated Manchester City in Premier League this season.
In any other season, this point-total would have been enough for a serious title challenge, but as things stand, Chelsea trail the leaders by eight points. Furthermore, they are fighting it out for a place in the top-four with Arsenal close in pursuit.
All indicators point towards a two-horse race this season, and it appears that the distance between the top two sides and the rest of the league is only going to increase with time.
Tottenham and Chelsea are not so far behind the top two, and sides have successfully surmounted this kind of gap in the past. However, Liverpool and City are playing near perfect football at the moment, and its hard to see them both suffer a dip in their form for a considerable period. The same can’t be said about Tottenham and Chelsea, both of whom have lost against weaker oppositions this season.
And for this reason, it’s tough to back both London sides in the title race this season.
