The 2018/2019 Premier League season has been all shades of dramatic and eventful. The season is not even over yet and there are already a lot of questions as to what could have been.
- What would have happened had Riyad Mahrez scored that penalty against Liverpool?
- Would it have been a different kind of season had Ole Gunnar Solskjaer started the season as Man. United manager?
- Would Tottenham have done better without Harry Kane suffering that injury?
- Who will win the PL title race?
The season has been keenly contested in different areas of the table. At the bottom, the shuffle has been pretty consistent, with teams moving in and out of the relegation waters. In the top half, there’s the struggle for a Champions League spot.

And then there’s the Liverpool-Manchester City battle.
Both sides are the only two sides to have topped the table this season. First, it was Manchester City, in what looked like they were coasting to yet another title win. Then Liverpool took advantage of the Citizens’ sip-up. A capitulation by the Reds has seen Pep Guardiola’s men move even closer to the zenith.
Both teams are at least five points ahead of third-place Tottenham. Barring all unforeseen circumstances, either one of these two sides will win the PL title. But with all the back-and-forth that has occurred, it remains to be seen which side will be victorious come May.
There are so many factors that can determine the next PL title winner.
One of such factor is injuries suffered by key players. Liverpool had to endure their fair share of this when Virgil van Dijk was out injured. They have to find a way to survive without Roberto Firmino. Pep Guardiola has to cope without Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte, two key players the manager relies heavily on.

Another deciding factor is the run of matches still to be played. Liverpool may only have the headache of PL and UCL football to worry about. However, the Reds still have to worry about playing Tottenham and Chelsea before the season ends.
It’s more complicated for Manchester City.
After successfully defending a title for the first time in their history, they’re still fighting for titles on three fronts: FA Cup, PL and UCL. In the league, City has to worry about facing Tottenham and Manchester United.
For both sides, the lesser sides in the league can spring a surprise at anytime. Any point(s) dropped at this stage could prove costly. Both sides, from hence, will be on their A-game. However, only one side can win the title.
Which team will that be? Which side will be the victorious one at the end of the day? Leave us your comments and share your thoughts with us.
