Thrilling Serie A, LaLiga and Bundesliga showing dull Premier League how it’s done with title races neck and neck – The SunFebruary 14, 2020
THE Premier League is coming to the end of its first winter break with everyone but Jurgen Klopp accepting the title race is already over.
After the fight for the crown went down to the final day in a thrilling season last year – with Manchester City edging out Liverpool by a single point – no one could have seen this coming.
How the Premier League looks after the winter break
We're only in February and Klopp's rampant Reds are a seemingly uncatchable 22 points ahead of City and look almost certain to finally win their first Premier League crown.
Of course, there's plenty still to play for in the Prem, with just six points separating Chelsea in fourth and Wolves in ninth as the race for European spots heats up.
There's also just ONE point between Arsenal in tenth and Crystal Palace in 14th in a bunched-up middle of the table.
Just three points separate 15th from 19th too, as the battle to avoid the drop heats up.
But in terms of title race? There will surely be no drama… unlike the rest of Europe.
Spain, Germany and particularly Italy are all enjoying a fierce fight to win the league. Take a look at how close it is on the Continent, below…
FOR a really tasty title fight, tune into the Serie A for the rest of the year.
Inter Milan – full of Premier League old boys including the rejuvenated Romleu Lukaku and Ashley Young – are currently top of the league, ahead of Juventus, who have won the past EIGHT titles.
Antonio Conte's side are top on goal difference alone, with Lazio in third just a single point behind, with the Italian flight going goal-mad this season.
In fact, in terms of goals per game, Italy ranks as the most exciting in Europe this season – a far cry from the "defensive" reputation it has built up over the years.
Then there's the fight for the European spots, with just two points separating tenth-placed AC Milan and sixth-placed Verona in the final Europa League berth.
At the foot of the table, it's anybody's guess, with just ten points separating 12th-placed Sassuolo from the relegation zone.
Between 12th and 20th, big names Fiorentina, Udinese, Torino and Sampdoria are all in trouble, while Genoa, Brescia and SPAL make up the bottom three.
