EPL: Chelsea Held to Goal-less Draw by Norwich City

The draw against Norwich City means that both Manchester City and Liverpool have to lose their remaining games for Chelsea to have a chance at winning the Premier League title.

London: The Premier League title race is realistically down to Manchester City and Liverpool now.

They would have to lose both of their final games to give Chelsea any hope of capturing the trophy after the London club was held to a 0-0 draw by Norwich on Sunday.

Chelsea is a point behind City and Liverpool in third but has only one game remaining with an inferior goal difference.

Chelsea did, however, effectively secure the third automatic Champions League qualification spot. Arsenal, which beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0 on Sunday, will have to go through an August playoff to reach the group stage.

The drab Stamford Bridge draw leaves Norwich needing to beat Arsenal — and Sunderland losing its two remaining games — to survive.
