The top four in the table increased their hold on their Champions League spots this weekend with wins, but some people are still discrediting Arsenal as serious challengers for top spot.
Chelsea continued their extremely impressive form by beating Fifth-placed Tottenham from a goal behind yesterday, piling further pressure on our side today, and we responded in tremendous fashion.
Despite making some changes to our first-team, with Mathieu Debuchy and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain coming into the starting XI, we kept up our impressive form with a comfortable (ish) victory over Bournemouth in order to stay within three points of the leaders.
Manchester United also failed to inspire themselves to win today, meaning we end the matchweek with a four and eight point safety net as we look to complete the primary aim of securing Champions League football.
Other teams like to joke that we are solely interested in this feat, but the reality is that we have finished fourth, third and second in consecutive years, and first is a realistic target.
We have scored an average of 2.4 goals per game this season, scoring 48 goals in our 20 competitive matches thus far, and with Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud sharing our striker role, there is no reason why that should change in the near future.
Yes, the Blue side of London are looking thoroughly impressive in their new formation, but their system will get found out, and we all know that Diego Costa is due an injury a red card in the near future right?
Both Liverpool and Manchester City have had their weaknesses exposed on more than occasion, with the Reds defence seemingly unknown to a clean sheet, and with Claudio Bravo not looking interest in trying to keep one!
We will be the ones there making Chelsea fight to win this season’s Premier League, and if they slip up, we will be there to pick up the pieces.
Do you agree that only us should be considered serious challengers to Chelsea for the title? Or do any of you actually believe that Liverpool can keep up their relentless goalscoring, despite the ominous prospect of playing without star-man Coutinho for the coming months?
