Manchester City's draw felt more like a loss for them, a win for Chelsea, and a massive win for Liverpool. Though Arsenal remain hot on Liverpool's tail at two points down with another massive goal onslaught this weekend, Liverpool is now four points ahead of Chelsea.

Had any more of the 31 shots City took on Saturday found the back of the net, Liverpool would have been just two points ahead of City as well. Now, they have breathing room, with winnable matches ahead of them in Luton Town, Chelsea, and Nottingham Forest in league play before they take on City on March 10.

Liverpool's focus can continue to be solely on its own performances, as it has been for the season.

Liverpool standings: EPL table is a big win with Man City draw

Liverpool remains atop the table. Rounding out UEFA slots is Aston Villa with Tottenham hot on their trail.

West Ham has hit a proper free-fall with a 2-0 loss to a beatable Nottingham Forest team that outplayed the Hammers in a fast-paced game with far more quality shots.

Interestingly, though Chelsea only gained a point, they look a sleeper to turn things around following a win and a draw. If the tide has truly changed for them, they are only a handful of points out from the No. 7 spot that Newcastle currently occupies.
