It was a common thick pundit opinion at Christmas that Liverpool were doing well despite not playing well. Now that's changed to how brilliant they were before but have now run out of steam. In truth they haven't been that great all season. Some credit to them, and spurs actually, for hanging around near the top. This season hasn't really got going at the top, especially when compared to last season. City are comfortably the best team. The only interesting thing that's happened this year is city's mad December.
