Man City strengthens grip on EPL title with 8-point lead

AP Sports Writer

Manchester City’s grip on its Premier League title hasn’t been this strong all season. A 1-0 win at Brentford coupled with Chelsea conceding a stoppage-time goal to draw 1-1 against Brighton left the defending champions with an eight-point lead heading into the new year. It has been an almost perfect 24 hours for City. Liverpool, another rival for the title, surprisingly lost 1-0 at injury-hit Leicester on Tuesday. Chelsea has moved a point ahead of Liverpool before their meeting at Stamford Bridge on Sunday when at least one of the teams will drop points. Phil Foden scored the winner for City, which has recorded 10 straight victories.
