With three weeks left in the Premier League season, we have our first title-clinching scenario. With three points this weekend at Old Trafford, Leicester City will have an unsurmountable lead atop English football. And if somehow the Foxes stumble against Manchester United the pressure goes back to Spurs, who won’t catch the trophy without at least three consecutive wins.
Farther down the table, Manuel Pellegrini is once again upset with UEFA. Madrid played their league match on Saturday and the City manager, who will is seeking a Champions League title before he is replaced, is arguing that 25 hours extra rest is an unfair advantage. I’m sure if he could forfeit the weekend fixture against Southampton if he could, as City should be solely focused on their 0-0 draw with Real Madrid heading into the second leg of the Champions League semifinals.

City’s busy schedule have them in danger of falling out of the top four. West Ham and United are within striking distance, and City still have to face Arsenal next weekend.

At the bottom of the table, Newcastle have earned five points in three matches to put them, for now, out of the relegation zone. Ex-Madrid manager Rafa Benitez took over in March, and the Magpies are one point above the drop with Aston Villa on the schedule next week.
