Just as expected at the start of the season, the Premier League is shaping up to be a three-horse race with Manchester City top at Christmas, a good omen for Pep Guardiola, as each time this has happened before, they have gone on to lift the title. Despite being closely followed by Liverpool, and until recently Chelsea, we see the Citizens retaining the title as with the squad depth available to Guardiola, barring an injury crisis, they can seamlessly replace one world class player with another which may be key come May.
Although we predict Liverpool to miss out on the title, we more than expect them to house this season's Golden Boot winner in Mohamed Salah, who will most likely claim his third title - only Thierry Henry will have more if this happens. The Egypt man is on 16 goals and five clear of his nearest challenger. At the same time, he is also leading the assists chart with nine. The forward has been unplayable this season and if he continues in this vein may even lift the Ballon d'Or next year, especially is Liverpool win a major title.
