The Cityzens are going to defend their Premier League title, aren’t they? After 20 game weeks, Manchester City leads the table with 50 points, eight ahead of Chelsea in second place.
Mohamed Salah missed a penalty, Sadio Mane found the stands when he should have scored, and Haruna Lookman came in from the bench to score to ensure the defending champions are the winter champions with a healthy lead.
What a year it has been for Pep Guardiola and his men. Indeed, if 2021 was a season all on its own, the team would still have been champions.
Arsenal has had an improved year, too. From finishing in 9th place in May, the Gunners are on course to finish in fourth place this season.
The start of 2022 ushers in some top-drawer fixtures and there is so much to look forward to.
