Opinion: Despite Losing Yesterday, Check Out The Only Advantage Chelsea Has Over Manchester City

The English Premier League resumed play on its 15th matchday on Sunday. The first round of games has been completed. Today is the day for the second set of the weekend. West Ham and Chelsea were the first two teams to play in the first round of fixtures. When Chelsea traveled to West Ham, it was an away game. Despite a strong start and a 1-0 lead in the first half, Chelsea lost the game.

West Ham secured victory in the 87th minute with a goal from. There was also a match between Manchester City and Liverpool yesterday. Liverpool was the first team to face Manchester City. The Citizens were in action against Watford while they faced Wolves.

After Origi came to the rescue, Liverpool won the game in extra time. Pep Guardiola's team, on the other hand, cruised to victory. With the victory, Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier League table. Before Manchester City's match that day, this was the conversation.

Ultimately, Manchester City came out on top, with Liverpool in second place and Chelsea in third place, respectively. If you look closely at this table, you can see the point differential between the three clubs at the very top of the list. Manchester City leads the way with 35 points, followed by Liverpool (34), and Chelsea (33).

It's still a close race for the title, despite this. If any of these three teams makes a mistake, they could fall to third place like Chelsea did when they lost a game. Chelsea still holds a slight advantage over Manchester City in the current standings based on this table.

Chelsea's advantage over Manchester City:

Chelsea's "Goal Difference" is greater than Manchester City's, according to a closer examination. Compared to the Citizens' "+23," Chelsea's "+26" is a significant advantage.

In what ways does this benefit you:

With a goal difference, Manchester City won the league in previous years. In order to overtake Manchester United in the title race, they scored more goals and conceded fewer.

If Chelsea needs it, this will come in handy. Chelsea appears to be in the midst of a period of "difficult matches." They'll get back to winning ways eventually.

As a result, this goal advantage might be the only thing that could save them. It's clear that Chelsea and manager Thomas Tuchel want to get back to winning ways as the season progresses. In Manchester City's case, Pep Guardiola's commitment to keeping them at the top of the table will be a cause for celebration.
