Rarely has the race for second in something ever looked this exciting.
But that’s a part of what makes the EPL special. There’s a lot more at stake than just who wins the title. There’s the race for the Champions League and Europa League spots at one end, and the race to avoid relegation at the other.
On Sunday, Liverpool pulled out a 4-3 thriller at Anfield to end Manchester City’s 30-match unbeaten run in league play, a run that included 20 wins in 22 games this season.
It’s been a fun week for football, on both sides of the Atlantic.
In addition to a classic college championship game in the U.S. on Monday, we witnessed arguably the best EPL game of the season early Sunday, in the midst of a packed weekend of great NFL playoff action.
The week got off to a flying start when Nick Saban’s Alabama came from 13-0 down to defeat Georgia 26-23 in overtime to clinch a fifth national crown in nine years.
It was also Saban’s sixth national championship overall, a remarkable tally by any standards.
