Analyzing the Three-Way Premier League Title Race: Liverpool, Arsenal, or Man City?

2 min read

The Premier League table sees Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester City separated by four points and with games in hand. Arsenal’s last league title victory was 20 years ago.

The three clubs are currently in a title tussle, with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City having the title advantage. They need six successive wins to secure an unprecedented, fourth consecutive league title, though a single misstep could change their fortunes.

The top three teams have been competing since Christmas, with Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa dropping out of the running. Arsenal currently leads the battle for goal difference, followed by Manchester City and Liverpool.

Arsenal is the form side among the challengers, averaging 2.4 points per game in their previous five league outings. The Gunners also boast the best defense this season, conceding the fewest goals and keeping the most clean sheets.

However, they still need to prove themselves after last season’s title capitulation. Manchester City’s strength in depth and experience make them strong contenders, with a 56 per cent chance of winning the title according to Opta’s supercomputer.

Arsenal’s chances have increased to 31 per cent following their win against Chelsea, while Liverpool are now the underdogs at 16 per cent. City’s chances of retaining their title are now nearly 50/50.

Judging by their upcoming fixtures, Liverpool’s run-in appears slightly tougher than Arsenal’s and Manchester City’s.
