5 things to know about the English Premier League
Question of the Day
After the home match to Sunderland - which is in last place but coming off a 2-2 draw at Man City on Wednesday - Chelsea faces two legs of a Champions League semifinal against Atletico Madrid and a potentially title-deciding game at Liverpool in the space of nine days.
With tiredness starting to creep in at the end of a long season, squad rotation could be key over the next fortnight for Chelsea although Jose Mourinho will know there is no room for error given Liverpool’s current form.
Chelsea can capture the league title by winning its last four matches.
“No one expected anything from Liverpool and they are in contention and that is why they play without pressure so far,” Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech said, “but let’s see how they are going to cope when it comes to the last hurdle.”
CITY EYES REPEAT COMEBACK
Man City came from eight points behind with six games remaining to overhaul Manchester United and win the Premier League in 2012, so the team’s current predicament should hold no fear ahead of its home match against West Bromwich Albion on Monday.
“I think we are more mentally tired than physically tired,” City manager Manuel Pellegrini said after the Sunderland match, in which Yaya Toure and David Silva were missing for City through injury and Sergio Aguero playing at nowhere near full fitness.
Silva could return against West Brom, while Aguero will hope to play longer than the 55 minutes he managed against Sunderland as he steps up his comeback from two months out with a hamstring injury.
MOYES BACK AT EVERTON
David Moyes will return to Goodison Park for the first time since taking over as Manchester United manager last summer - and he will find an Everton team flourishing under his replacement, Roberto Martinez.
Moyes spent 11 years at Everton, initially with the task of keeping the team in the Premier League and then with breaking the grip of the established elite in the top four.
He never succeeded, but Martinez could do so in his first season on Merseyside.
