English Premier League Round-up after Feb. 8

Premier League Round-up: Man City keep impressive run going as battle for top 5 spots intensifies

February 8, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
Pep Guardiola's men took advantage of one of the worst performances by Alisson since he joined the Reds to open a gap between them and Manchester United.

The 2020-21 English Premier League seems to be heading to an early conclusion, since up to this point, there is no team that can challenge Manchester City's dominance. Pep Guardiola's men claimed a convincing win over Liverpool, and with the shaky form shown by Manchester United, it seems that the title will only fall into other hands if the Citizens dropped the ball big-time.

Top five teams in the English Premier League until February 8

Manchester City extended their lead to five points after Manchester United dropped two points at home against Everton. Elsewhere, Leicester's surprising draw against Wolverhampton prevented them from claiming second place. Last, but not least, Chelsea's rise under Tuchel continues and the Blues are now fifth, one point behind the injury-plagued Liverpool.

English Premier League's Top 3 scorers

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah added one more goal to his tally in the Premier League Golden Boot race, which gave him some breathing space against a pack of four players who have scored 13 goals. Bruno Fernandes, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Harry Kane, and Son Heung-Min have all scored 13 times, and each one of them helped their cause by adding one goal to their tally this season.

English Premier League - Top headlines

  • Liverpool continue dip in form at home - After putting together one of the longest streaks without a loss at Anfield, Klopp's men seem to have lost their mojo at home with three defeats in a row as hosts. This is the first time in over 60 years where a defending EPL champion has lost as many home games in a row in the follow up season after their championship. Is this the end of an era at Anfield?

  • Chelsea back to Top 5 under Tuchel - The German boss has hit the ground running after stepping in for Frank Lampard. Three wins in four games and a defensive prowess that has seen the Blues concede once since Tuchel's appointment as coach seem to hint that a new golden era could be coming at Stamford Bridge.

  • Ref asks not to officiate EPL games due to death threats - Controversial referee Mike Dean asked his bosses not to give him any games in the next few days after being targeted by West Ham and Southampton fans over his decision to send off two players in consecutive games. Local authorities are already taking matters into their own hands to prevent matters from escalating.

Top matches to watch in the Premier League from February 13-15, 2021

  • Manchester City vs Tottenham - The Guardiola-Mourinho rivalry will see another chapter being added to it, as the Citizens will try to keep their flawless form going. On the other hand, the Special One's team is three points away from European spots, which will make the match even more relevant than initially expected.

  • Leicester vs Liverpool - The Foxes wasted a massive chance to claim the second place all to themselves, and now they will have to face Liverpool in a battle for the third spot. Regarding Liverpool, their recent woes could kill their title hopes in the event of a loss at King Power Stadium, and it will be up to Salah and Co. to try and avoid the downwards spiral to continue.

  • West Bromwich vs Manchester United - WBA are fighting for their lives in the Premier League, and facing Solskjaer's men will surely give them a bit of a headache. As for the Red Devils, their disappointing result against Everton will force them to try and win all the points here, because a loss or a draw could see them drop to third in the EPL title race while also watching Man City get further away from their reach.
