Liverpool and Tottenham flounder in their title challenge
Heading into this weekend, Liverpool and Tottenham knew their games were close to must win.
A victory for Liverpool would have put them three points clear at the top of the table. Spurs, meanwhile, had a chance to close the gap on the two ahead of them.
Instead, both teams floundered. Liverpool put in a nondescript and frankly disappointing performance at Old Trafford. It was a display that suggested they are feeling the pressure of a title challenge.
Tottenham did not fare much better at Burnley. A 2-1 defeat there practically ended their hopes of a title challenge this season and raised more questions about their ability to actually compete at the top of the table.
