A couple of Premier League games were played over the last two days, both significant to the City cause.
On Tuesday, Blackpool did us a huge favour as well as boosting their survival hopes by beating Spurs 3-1 at Bloomfield Road. By all accounts, I understand the home side were battered throughout the game but took their chances when Spurs didn’t. The result means City remain third, two points ahead of Spurs with the same amount of games played. City also have a better goal difference.
But last night, Arsenal stretched their lead over City and kept up with United at the top of the table with a 1-0 home win. Arsenal are now one point behind United in second place, but seven ahead of the blues.
Champions Chelsea look well and truly out of the title race as they languish in fifth spot, four points behind City with a game in hand and ten points behind United, who they meet at Stamford Bridge next Tuesday.
City of course, welcome back Mark Hughes and his Fulham side on Sunday, who will be looking for revenge after they were thrashed 4-1 at Craven Cottage.
