The highly enthralling 2023-24 season of the Premier League has delivered a lot of memorable moments in the first six months, and it is expected to stay the same till the final weekend in late May. The reigning champions Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal have emerged as three of the top contenders for the Premier League title in the football news landscape, but Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa aren’t far behind either.
The latest football news sees Liverpool leading the Premier League 2023-24 points table with 51 points in 22 matches, five points ahead of the second-placed Manchester City. They have achieved 15 wins and six draws so far in the ongoing domestic league season, losing only once with the football live score against Tottenham Hotspur at that time being 1-2 away from home in September.
Apart from continuous matches in the Premier League 2023-24 season, Liverpool are currently set to play the EFL Cup final against Chelsea on February 25th, and just a few days later, they will continue with their campaign in the fifth round of the FA Cup on February 28th. In the football news, the Merseyside club will also compete in the round of 16 of the UEFA Europa League next month, which could stretch their squad to their absolute limit, especially with player injuries happening at a regularity in recent months.
Therefore, it could be a tough task for the outgoing manager Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool to help them keep up their current form in the Premier League intact, which would give the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal to catch up with them. Some of the top players, who could be making a telling difference for Liverpool in potentially winning the Premier League, are Allison Becker, Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, and Mohamed Salah.
Talking about the latest football news around Manchester City, the reigning champions have started to deliver consistent performances to start off the year 2024 in the Premier League after the return of their star performer Kevin de Bruyne from a major injury. Notably, the end of 2023 saw Manchester City register only one win in six domestic league matches at one stage, including four draws, and one defeat against Aston Villa at the Villa Park with the football live score of 0-1 at the time.
But, since then, Manchester City have secured four straight wins in the Premier League 2023-24 season, and in the football news, their previous victory came at the Etihad Stadium against Burnley by 3-1 on Thursday, February 2. Also, Erling Haaland made his much-awaited return as a substitute against Burnley in the Premier League after a two month injury layoff, bolstering the attacking prowess of Manchester City, which could prove vital in securing the championship win come this May.
Although they are five points behind Liverpool as per the latest football news, the game in hand will give them the opportunity to close the gap on the Premier League points table further, but at the same time, they have the gruelling UEFA Champions League knockout campaign yet to come just like Arsenal.
Following an impressive start to the 2023-24 season of the Premier League, Arsenal lost their way in the month of December, suffering three defeats and barely managing to get a draw at Anfield against Liverpool with the football live score of 1-1 at the time. Despite a tough few weeks leading into the new year, Arsenal is still well in the hunt to win their first Premier League title in two decades, but they will need their top players like David Raya, William Saliba, Ben White, Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Jesus, and Bukayo Saka, to step up big time in the remainder of the season.
All in all, the reigning champions Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal are three of the likeliest teams to take home the 2023-24 Premier League title at the end of the ongoing season in May. The team that holds their nerve in the critical moments of the upcoming big matches will have the best chance to hit the football news worldwide by getting crowned the champions of England.
