Man United's 'Invincible' run is statistically the worst in Premier League history

These days, though, not so much. Arsenal may well be the most interesting story of the latter stages of the 2016-17 season.

Few players are breaking through into either the Blues' or City's senior set-up, and that doesn't look set to change just yet.

We have a slightly superior goal-difference than both, and there's no guarantees they'll pick up consecutive wins, of course. That may even be beyond Sunderland's remarkable ability to survive when the odds are against them. It would also be a big middle finger to Spurs fans who have been getting over vocal with their hopes of leapfrogging the leaders, as if we needed more reasons to hope Chelsea win.

"He's been the match-winner again for Chelsea". Obviously they play less games than the other ones.

The fact that the game where Liverpool honored the passing of Ronnie Moran was also the Merseyside Derby seems entirely appropriate. They were out-shot and out-possessed. A good run-in and this could still be deemed a successful season.

Liverpool haven't qualified for the Champions League since 2014 when Klopp's predecessor Brendan Rodgers led Liverpool to a second-place finish.

"There is a co-ordinated effort from everybody to want to make this happen", said the Nigerian, whose opinions hold great sway with owner Roman Abramovich.

On the Crystal Palace defeat: "It's an important part of the season, but we have to continue in the same way, to work, to work very, very hard".

Manchester United went top never to be caught on 24th November when they last captured the Premier League trophy in the 2012/13 campaign, while 27th November was the all-important date for going top two years earlier in 2010/11. He paid the price with his job.

Yet with the likes of Pep Guardiola stating that Conte is "maybe the best" manager in the world, the offers will continue to flood in for Conte.
