3-way tie in the Barclays
Don't look now (actually, it's OK to look) -- as of today, there's a 3-way tie at the top of Britain's Barclays Premier League (soccer) between Liverpool, Manchester City, and Arsenal. It's good to see Liverpool contending again, and though Arsenal has had some tough matches lately, they're still very strong. Manchester City has come on very well recently.
Everton is a point back and Chelsea, which actually LOST to Crystal Palace, is two points back. Which means it's still wide open.
Crystal Palace is still in the relegation zone, but they're only a point from "safety", as the Brits would say. So it's going to be interesting at the top and bottom of the Barclays.
Man City plays the top (Liverpool) and then Crystal Palace in their next two.
