Premier league champions
Have no God given right to keep the title or be given it handy.
Champions can find it hard to go to the mountain top again in the same fashion as before. Getting to the top of the mountain can be draining and when you need to push tgat energy might not be there like it eas before.
Champions are hunted. And everyone wants to be at their best against you and everyone wants to see you fail.
Champions have bad runs of form. Champions can suffer when missing key players..
But champions never give in until its over. And these champions with half a season to go certainly wont give up until its over. They now again become the hunter. They will claw this back bit by bit.
They need some doubters to become believers again though
