this win doesn't help chelsea at all. their chances at the title are still very slim despite beating both liverpool and city in all 4 games.
however it's a good win for the suspense it brings. city can now tie liverpool at the top and win the title at goal difference.
however, that means city must win all 3 games since i'm pretty sure liverpool will win its last 2 games. normally this should be achievable, the only difficult game being the one city has away at everton.
if city wins the title on goal difference it will be the second time they do it in the last few years, since they did it once back in 2012.
So basically, if liverpool had played for the draw and conceded you would ve said that they should ve gone for the win and that they were pussies. It s always easy to say in the aftermath.
And what you are saying is ridiculous. Winning puts chelsea 2 points away from the title. No matter how low the odds are, they still have a small chance to be champion. It would ve been really stupid not to do all you can till the end as long as there is a small hope.
And as i said before... Would everton give a title to liverpool? They still have a lot in stake, so they will probably think of their faith before liverpool s.
I still think liverpool wins, but i hope city gets it.
