Jose Mourinho's side had kept the title race just about alive with a dramatic 3-2 derby win in their previous game, but a dismal performance against the league's bottom club means they can not now finish higher than second place. "The amount of goals, chances and points, to do that in the Premier League, with the contenders we have, is because the players are so good". Maybe also City will invest massively and they don't let the others close the gap to them, I don't know.

By releasing Anderson, the Broncos save $4.5 million in cap space this offseason. Their running back depth chart is now fairly thin, and it would be reasonable to expect them to add a back during the draft next week. But I'm going to focus on myself. Anderson rushed for 1,007 yards on 245 carries with three touchdowns. The veteran running back broke the 1,000 rushing yard mark for the first time against the Kansas City Chiefs in December.
