Despite being one of the historic cradles of football, London has lost importance in it. Traditionally a winning city in the Premier League due to the large number of local teams, since 2017 none have succeeded.
The Chelsea of Antonio Conte, in a very distant 2017, was the last team from the English capital to win the title and ni Arsenal ni TottenhamAlthough they have tried, they have been close in recent times.
In addition to those mentioned, West Ham, Crystal Palace and Fulham fight this season in the highest category and share the city with the three most awarded ‘Big Six’.
As for the ‘blues’, who have just dismissed Lampard, great regularity has been lacking. Conte left, Sarri did not convince … and the former player has not been the expected shock.
In Tottenham they ended tired of Pochettino and now it’s José Mourinho the one that tries to return to the ‘spurs’ to the titles after several years of drought.
Finally, Arsenal are still trying to find their identity without Arsène Wenger. Emery was chosen to give continuity to the team, but neither he, nor the interim Ljungberg nor Mikel Arteta, who has won trophies but has the team wandering in the Premier, seem to be the perfect choice for the ‘Gunners’ to fight again for title. In his case, the league drought dates back to 2004.
