Prior to the games, the two sides were dead level at the top of the table, with the same number of points, wins, goal difference and goals scored. It seems that despite Chelsea taking an early eight point lead, this year’s title race is shaping up to be one of the closest yet.
Of course, it will have to maintain this form for the entire season if it’s to live up to these five classics. Here are the five most memorable title races in Premier League history:
5) Manchester City beat Liverpool by two points (2013-14)
With just three games to go, Liverpool led the league table, having beaten City at Anfield, and looked set to claim their first title in over two decades. But, in a moment that will go down in Premier League folklore, Steven Gerrard’s slip against Chelsea, which allowed Demba Ba to gallop through on goal and score for Chelsea, would ultimately prove costly. The Reds lost the game 2-0, and were undone again just days later as they through away a three goal lead to draw with Crystal Palace. But even if they’d have won the game, they’d have lost the title on goal difference.
