MUSTAFI ERROR BLOWS THE EPL TOP FOUR RACE OPEN AGAIN
Arsenal lost 3-2 in the London derby against Crystal palace.
Shkodran Mustafi’s howler was well appreciated by Wilfred Zaha as he scored Palace’s 3rd goal.
Rewind to a few weeks ago, Arsenal fans must have rejoiced at the fact that unlike the other top 4 contenders , they had relatively easier fixtures.
With Spurs dropping form and losing key players , United losing their way after the Parc Des Prince miracle and Chelsea dropping points against Everton, Arsenal seemed most likely to finish 3rd.
Arsenal got 4 points from back to back games against Spurs and ManUnited in March , since then, they’ve played 4 games (Newcastle, Watford, Everton and Palace) and lost to Everton and Palace.
Seria A – THE RACE FOR THE TOP FOUR
In that period ;
Spurs have lost 3 of their 5 league games (Southampton, Liverpool and City)
Chelsea have dropped points in 3 of their 6 league games, with a draw against Wolves and losses against Everton and Liverpool.
Manchester United have lost 2 of their 4 league games (Wolves and Everton)
The inconsistencies of these teams has made the top four race the tightest in recent years.
Which teams will get the 3rd and 4th place positions?
