Premier League 2018-19: Title race hots up as the final quarter of the season looms
This season in the Premier League has been an extraordinary ride with Manchester City continuing their dominance in the top flight from last season.
However, there has been one major difference: Liverpool.
After reaching last season's Champions League final it was felt amongst the football community that the Reds were going through the process of re-establishing their level of performance and quality that their elder supporters haven't seen since the late '80s. Also with City's midseason slip-up, it has meant the door has been left open for them.
So now with 12 games left to go (11 each for City and Everton), it's turning into a thrilling two-horse race at the top between Liverpool and City.
But there has been another team announcing their intentions of piling the pressure on the top two: Tottenham. After 26 games they are just five points behind and putting up one hell of a fight; all this steel despite two of their star players, Harry Kane and Dele Alli, picking up injuries keeping them both out of contention for at least a month each.
This season's title race is shaping up to be one of the best ever, it will be very interesting to see how this one ends up finishing!
Lower down the table, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United have also been incredible. Winning ten out of their first eleven games under his management, the Red Devils have climbed two places up to fourth, a position the United fans could only dream of under Mourinho's management. Arsenal and Chelsea will be giving United enough headaches in their respective bid for a top 4 finish though
Then we go further down to seventh and we have Wolverhampton Wanderers, fresh up from the Championship and definitely the surprise package of this season. Seventh after twenty-six games, and with a majority of Portuguese players, they have been a fantastic team to watch. Nuno Espirito Santo's team has played high-quality football all season with several of their players attracting interest from Europe's top sides as a result.
