Neither coach picked the starting lineups for Saturday’s game that rarely sparked into life, highlighting both teams’ issues in a season where they have struggled.Ancelotti will take the reins of a side that is in 15th place, just four points above the relegation zone. It’s a situation he isn’t used to, having mostly been in charge of elite European clubs in his illustrious coaching career that includes three Champions League titles.Arteta’s new team won’t be high on confidence, either, down in 11th place in the league and having won just once in 13 games in all competitions since the end of October.UNLIKELY TOP-FOUR BIDSThe Premier League is nearly half a season old, and Sheffield United and Wolverhampton Wanderers are still managing to keep up their unlikely bids for Champions League qualification.Sheffield United climbed to fifth place with a 1-0 win at Brighton that preserved its unbeaten away record since returning to the top flight this season. It is six draws and three wins from the team’s nine away games, with United not losing away in the league since January — when it was in the League Championship.Oli McBurnie scored the only goal against Brighton after latching onto a long clearance from goalkeeper Dean Henderson.Wolves are a point and a place behind after rallying for a 2-1 victory at Norwich, with Raul Jimenez scoring the 81st-minute winner. Romain Saiss began the comeback in the 60th after Todd Cantwell opened the scoring for Norwich, which stayed in next-to-last place.Both Sheffield United and Wolves can be overtaken by Tottenham and Manchester United, who play separate games Sunday. Riyad Mahrez, who was a constant danger to his former club, equalized with a deflected shot before goals by Ilkay Gundogan – from the penalty spot – and Gabriel Jesus. Kevin De Bruyne was the standout player and set up Jesus’ goal with a driving run.Doubts about City’s stomach for a fight after four losses in the first 16 games of its title defense have disappeared after scoring three goals in wins over Arsenal and now Leicester over the past week.“When we lose it is a disaster and impossible, when we win it is possible to catch (Liverpool),” City manager Pep Guardiola said. “If we play like we did tonight we can compete with everyone.”Liverpool has a game in hand over both of its nearest rivals and still hasn’t lost a league game this season.NEW COACHESADVERTISEMENT Microsoft ends free Windows 7 security updates on Tuesday VILLA DROPSSouthampton climbed out of the relegation zone at the expense of Aston Villa by beating its relegation rival 3-1, thanks to two goals by Danny Ings.
