Are Chelsea in danger of being too comfortable at the moment? They'll be five points clear with this draw, but they do have some tough fixtures and it's not that out of the question that they could be caught. Earlier in the season they'd have taken this QPR team apart, they look fatigued and perhaps a little complacent.

Indeed crimey. Game in hand against Leciester who are picking up points at the moment, they screw that up, makes things very intresting at the top.

They're playing currently like a side that's already won the title and the foots off the gas.
Whilst they may have built up a lead from earlier in the season Arsenal have got their foot firmly on the accelerator.

Rob Green really has to do better there, I understand it comes through a few players but if he extends his arm it's within his reach.

Meh it wasn't a very good game. Chelsea looked a bit tired and Drogba's inability to link up together with really good pressure from QPR on Matic and Fabregas meant that Hazard and Willian rarely got the ball in good conditions. Once Oscar was on Chelsea looked a bit better but still way below their best.

QPR played a good physical game and impressively kept it up for 90 minutes. They had a great chance when Philips turned in the box but shot far too close to Courtois (in truth it wasn't that good a save). With the way Hull and Sunderland (except when playing Newcastle) seem to be playing and their run-in they may well stay up still.

Poor clearance from Green yes, but then nice little interchange from Chelsea in fairness. Really it was their one real opening and they took it. Don't think you can blame Green on the shot, he was instinctively going the other way and it was very well placed.

And yes 2nd in the league and the FA cup constitutes a successful season. Are we really saying that for the top 4 only winning the Premier League can constitute a successful season?

Great start from City BTW. United look very nervous.

If it stays like this and Liverpool win tomorrow, they're just four points behind Manchester City, really not out of the question that Manchester City could drop out of top four, Southampton only five points behind as well as it stands, it's possible City could finish as low as sixth.

In reference to Nick's 2nd place is a failure comment then its dependent on the expectations of the club.
For City to finish 2nd (or worse as it currently looks) then it would be a failure, one of which that'd result in the probable sacking of the manager. For anyone apart from City/Chelsea to get 2nd it'd be a success this season.

What has happened to Kompany? He's had the equivalent of Torres' drop in quality in such a short space of time.

In response to Chelsea being too comfortable, I see what you mean but they always seem to be able to grind out results. They never play attractive football and never really hammer teams either every week but will find a way to get results.

If Chelsea lose their next 2, provided Arsenal win them both, the title is well on. But I can't see Chesea losing either of their next 2 games because of their style of play.

It all depends on your ambitions. City have only won two league titles in recent history. Chelsea haven't won one since 2010. 2nd plus Cup is good going. Think Chelsea need 2nd plus at least SF in Europe to constitute a decent season, but ja.

Your right kingraf. It depends on your ambitions and your circumstance. We have said that Mourinho wouldn't take 2nd place + a trophy, no because he is top of the table so obviously he wants the title to go with his League Cup.

But someone like Pellegrini would take 2nd place + a trophy now, that's for sure. Wenger would be the same because its an improvement on the league position of last season and its retaining his FA Cup trophy.

If you went back to the start of the season, I think everyone would have taken 2nd place and a trophy. Obviously, all the managers want to win the Premier League that are at the top but at the start of any season, if you said to Mourinho, LVG, Wenger, Rodgers and Pellegrini, "would you take 2nd place + a trophy by the end of the season?", I'm sure they would all say yes.

If Mourinho "only" finished 2nd and won the FA Cup, he'd hardly be "disgusted."

Has that just sealed the deal now for United? Looks that way. City have been well off the pace ever since United equalised and United have dominated ever since. Questions raised about whether they are coming back to power? Too soon to say right now I think.

Tbh, Mata is much maligned, and rightly so, his workrate is Ozilian, but the ability to create and score at the end of the day > workrate. With that said, no matter how well he does at Utd, Chelsea were right to sell him. Simply had no use in a Mourinho team.

Will be interested to see how UTD fair next season. di Maria is second on the assist charts and he's done next to nothing, so you'd think he'll improve. Rooney has found a position for him to see out what's left of his peak. Utd need a Giroud* type striker, one who can rack up 20-odd goals, and bring everyone into play, and I think they'll get 2nd. Don't think they can challenge Chelsea yet.

*Are any of the really prolific strikers up for grabs?

'm lost for words about City. They need to shaft a few players out and they need to bring some quality in. Starting with the manager.

Do City risk sacking Pellegrini now and have a caretaker manager until the end of the season, but possibly lose fourth or wait until the end of the season but know that the manager will have lost the confidence of the fans, players and management? There's no way he's lasting beyond the summer and with the form the way it is, City look like they could really easily fall out of the top four which would be a total disaster.
