Race for the EPL Crown

Just when I thought it would be a 2-horse race between Chelsea and Man United for the league title, the result over the weekend has thrown the race wide open, with for a Arsenal coming into the equation.

Last night was one of those rare occasions that I was rooting for Liverpool. I thought they might just “turn a corner” against the Gunners after welcoming Gerrad, Torres and the ever-absent Aquilani back to the team. But instead of turning a corner, they overturned. No thanks to Glen Johnson, who is fast establishing a reputation as a scorer of own goals.

While it effectively eliminated the Reds from the title race, Arsenal is now just 3 points away from United and with a game in hand. As if playing catch-up with Chelsea is not bad enough, we still have to watch our backs for the Gunners.

As much as I hate to admit, Owen and Berbatov just don’t cut it, despite their occasional goals. We need someone like  Ronaldo who can turn those tight games around with a moment of magic.

Oh…. how we missed the Portugese Peacock.
