Chelsea is in contention to win the Premier League this season; they are in the top three positions in the league along with Liverpool and Manchester City. These three teams are pulling away as they are gaining a significant gap with the rest of the teams in the league; following these teams West Ham are coming in fourth place but have a six-point difference. Additionally the top three Premier League teams have continued their great form in the Champions League; as all three of them have been able to qualify for the knock-out stages from their groups.
Manchester City finished their run in the group stages by finishing first in group A; as they were able to record four wins in six matches. Additionally, Liverpool ended as the best team in group B; as they won all of their group games. Unlike the other two teams, Chelsea wasn’t able to finish as the top team in the group; the blues finished second in the group behind Juventus who had two more points in comparison. This is because they had a poor match against Zenit which ended in a draw; if Tuchel’s men were able to win that match they would end this group as the leaders of the group.
