Heading into the Christmas, Defending Champions Manchester City have already opened 4 points lead at the top of the Table following a massive Slip by Chelsea team which led the league for a Longer duration since the start of Season. 

The Blues blew it up following a poor run of Results in their last four games which saw them Register just one win. 

This May come back to hunt Thomas Tuchel's men and be of a huge advantage to the Cityzens as stats shows that in the last ten EPL Season, 6 out of the Last 9 teams that led the league at Christmas went on to win the Trophy and more Fascinating, the 3 times When a team (Liverpool) failed to win the Trophy despite leading at Christmas, they were overthrown by Manchester City, the eventual Winners in all three occasions.

The Cityzens have Leicester City and Brentford to play on the 26th and 29th of December respectively, two Tricky Fixtures for Pep Guardiola's Men who are really in good spirit and top Form.

The Men from the Blue side of Manchester Recently set the record for Most Goals in a premier league Year with 106 goals Scored in the premier League so far this Year. They also set the record of 34 wins in the English Premier League.

While Liverpool and Chelsea May be Counting their Loss when the AFCON Starts in January, Manchester City at the other have no much to lose despite Riyad Mahrez heading to the AFCON with Algeria.

Mohamed Salah the League's top Scorer would be greatly Missed by Liverpool As well as Sadio Mane and Joel Matip while Top Shot-Stopper Edouard Mendy Would also be a Big Loss for Chelsea in between the sticks.

All Aforementioned Players would be representing their Nations at the AFCON Kicking off on the 9th of January, 2022.
