Tide Has Turned From London Towards Manchester

Tide Has Turned From London Towards Manchester

The balance of power within the Premier League hierarchy is slowly but surely changing. Once it used to be the London clubs who bossed the league but now the tide has turned in favour of both Manchester clubs.

The last decade has seen Chelsea dominate the top league in the world but their squad is aging and unless they strengthen their team and unless they up their current form there is a realistic chance of them finishing outside the top four.

Tottenham still look a threat as do Arsenal but we'll all have a better idea if the tide has turned irreversibly when Manchester City and Arsenal face-off on Wednesday night.

As of January 3, 2011 both United and City prop up the Premier League. I wonder if both clubs will still be in the same position come the end of the season.



North American Fox Sports football TV panellists discuss the current balance of power between London and Manchester clubs.

The pendulum swings to Manchester and then to City. The season won't hinge on Wednesday's match but the world will take note if we win

That draw against Villa for Chelsea has really put the cat amongst the pigeons. We're looking at the most exciting PL season in a long time.

It is not Chelsea but Manchester United that have dominated the past decade by winning 5 PL titles to Chelsea's 3 titles. Secondly, one cant say the tide has turned in favour of "both manchester clubs" unless Citeh actually win the league.
