Champions vs in-form leaders

We have a great Premier League title race on our hands, and it gets better with two of the title contenders meeting this weekend. Man City are the defending champions searching for an unprecedented four consecutive league titles, but they enter this weekend third.

Pep Guardiola’s side are just a point behind the top two, missing out on top spot after their draw with Liverpool last time out. But, once again, Man City are on an incredible run. Since their 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa in December, Man City have embarked on a run of 21 games unbeaten across all competitions. That run has seen them reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League, semi-finals of the FA Cup and win the Club World Cup. What’s more, 19 of those games have ended in victory, with only Liverpool and Chelsea holding Man City to a draw.

Arsenal, meanwhile, lead the lead ahead of Liverpool on goal difference and they’ll be full of confidence ahead of their trip to the Etihad. The Gunners are still perfect in the Premier League this year, having ended 2023 with a draw and two defeats in their final three matches.

Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest, Liverpool, West Ham, Burnley, Newcastle, Sheffield United and Brentford have all fallen, with Arsenal scoring 33 goals and conceding just four. Despite this, the Gunners have been given just a 21.26% chance of winning the title per Opta’s AI-powered season predictions.
