The Premier League season is coming to an end and the race for first place is still up in the air.

Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool have surprised many (if not all) by defying preseason odds and rocketing to the league's summit. Chelsea and Manchester City will still have a say as to who will be crowned champions in May.

Let's imagine, just for a minute, that Chelsea come away with a draw from Anfield on April 27. It's certainly plausible considering the Blues' league-high defensive record, and the irrepressible Jose Mourinho's knack of getting his tactics in the big games spot on.

Surely then, if the 'title decider' ends in a stalemate, Liverpool will coast to a first Premier League title since 1990, with Manchester City unable to affect proceedings directly following their crippling 3-2 defeat last weekend and the 2-2 draw against Sunderland last night?

Well who would have predicted that result last night apart from the Sunderland faithful at Eastlands? Man City are now playing a chasing game after drawing 2-2 at home last night. Surely that result hands the advantage to Liverpool and Chelsea in the title race!

If you ask me, it was perfect and sets everything up perfectly for next weekend at Anfield with Chelsea being just two points behind the league leaders.

What constitutes a good supporter?

Morning Gooner's,

As the title says, what tells us who is a good supporter? Many will say that a supporter who turns up for all of their teams home games is a real supporter, or the away supporter who travels. As the word states he pays for his ticket, whereby he supports. Would you say that that person is a better supporter than perhaps an oversea's supporter, who can only get to games when and if he visits the country, but he still see's his or her team on the paid for television.
