That possibility seemed unthinkable a few months ago when Man U were losing at home to Palace, Arsenal, getting destroyed by Tottenham but they have picked up as of late. Recent wins against Leeds, Wolves and Villa.

Liverpool on a bad run of form, losing to Southampton, drawing with West Brom and Newcastle. Liverpool currently tied on points with Man U having played a game more than Solskjaer's team. So Man U can overtake them with a win or draw against Burnley.

Poll added so vote.

Stranger things have happened.

But we'd need to see Liverpool continue to decline like they're doing before i believe that's a real possibility.

Only chance IMO is if Cavani plays a big role.

Burnley 0-1 Man U

Pogba's deflected shot.

Top of the league, 3 points above Liverpool

Next match? Liverpool v Man U on Sunday.

The league is between City and Liverpool. City being the current favorite.

Ok, they aren't good enough to win it just yet.

A team that loses at home to the bottom placed club (Sheffield United) and then chokes the lead twice at home against Everton (from 2-0 up to 2-2 within 4 minutes and from 3-2 to 3-3 in added time) is not mentally strong enough.

City up by 5 with a game in hand. That being said, they have a tough February and a H2H with ManU first game in March....so don't count out ManU just yet....but, I think you are right foLyfe....maybe a bit green for the title.

1.City 62
2. Man U 50

Pep wins his 3rd Premiership title in last 4 seasons. Not mathematically but realistically...

He is doing great domestically, still missing winning the CL outside of prime Barca though...
