Arse­nal is on stand­by.

The Pre­mier League has one of the most inter­est­ing cham­pi­onship races in recent years. Although there are still sev­er­al rounds before the end of the sea­son, there are three con­tenders for the title. Let’s take a clos­er look at their chances of suc­cess.

Arsenal have to wait for City to make a mistake

This is not the first sea­son that the Lon­don­ers have been head­ing towards the cham­pi­onship, but this year their chances for the title are the most tan­gi­ble. Team Arte­ta Since Decem­ber, she has prac­ti­cal­ly not stum­bled — she has only one defeat and one draw in the last 16 (!) Pre­mier League match­es. Of course, such stel­lar results brought Arse­nal to first place.

There’s just a lit­tle bit left to go — Man­ches­ter Unit­ed and Ever­ton. Giv­en the cur­rent form of both teams, Arse­nal can take six points from these meet­ings. But this may not be enough for the tro­phy, because the Gun­ners have a big prob­lem — Man­ches­ter City. Pep Guardi­o­la has not lost at all in the Pre­mier League since the begin­ning of Decem­ber and has a game in hand against Arse­nal. So all Arte­ta can do is win the next two rounds and wait for City to slip up — two draws or one defeat will do.

Haa­land is unhap­py with the replace­ment — Guardi­o­la left him with­out a pen­ta-trick. Arse­nal are first, but Man City are favorites

Manchester City can only rely on themselves

Let’s be hon­est — the cham­pi­onship is in the hands of Man­ches­ter City. Math­e­mat­i­cal­ly, every­thing depends on Pep Guardi­o­la’s team — they are cur­rent­ly sec­ond in the Pre­mier League table by one point, but have a game in hand. Earn­ing nine points (or even sev­en) guar­an­tees anoth­er tro­phy.

Is it real­ly pos­si­ble to get that many points? Quite. The oppo­nents are Ful­ham, Tot­ten­ham and West Ham, three wins in these match­es are with­in the team’s strength Guardi­o­la. With just one small note — play­ing against Spurs away in the Pre­mier League is a huge prob­lem for City. The Cit­i­zens have not been able to score at the Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur Sta­di­um since 2020, but they invari­ably con­cede – and this is where they will have to go very soon. Pep can’t lose unless he wants to depend on Arse­nal’s rivals.

Only a miracle can help Liverpool

With a con­vinc­ing home vic­to­ry over Tot­ten­ham, the team Klopp left her­self in the cham­pi­onship race, but only math­e­mat­i­cal­ly. Liv­er­pool is now five points behind first place — it is not dif­fi­cult to cal­cu­late that in the remain­ing two rounds Arse­nal must lose twice, City must win no more than once, and the Reds them­selves must win both remain­ing match­es in the Pre­mier League to take home the title. title.

The most fea­si­ble part of this plan can be called the vic­to­ries of Liv­er­pool — they play against Aston Vil­la and Wolver­hamp­ton, there are chances. But bet­ting that Arse­nal will lose both remain­ing match­es is more dif­fi­cult. The same can be said about City — it is dif­fi­cult to imag­ine that Guardi­o­la will score less than six points in games against Ful­ham, West Ham and Tot­ten­ham. But, of course, noth­ing can be ruled out, and at Anfield they will believe in suc­cess until the last.

A week ago, Salah had a fight with Klopp. Now Mo and Liv­er­pool have buried Tot­ten­ham’s Cham­pi­ons League hopes
