Analyzing Man City’s Final 8 Fixtures Against Liverpool and Arsenal as Premier League Title Race Nears Conclusion


The Premier League
title race has reached a dramatic stage, with Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal still in contention, leaving everything to play for.

Manchester City bounced back to form with a convincing 4-1 victory over Aston Villa on Wednesday, following draws against title rivals Liverpool and Arsenal in their previous two Premier League fixtures. This win was crucial for City to regain momentum after a challenging period.

With all three teams having played 30 games, Pep Guardiola and his squad have only eight matches left to bridge the gap and reclaim the title.

Here’s a comparison of how City, Liverpool, and Arsenal stand and their remaining fixtures, setting the stage for an exciting run-in.

Verdict: Can Manchester City win the Premier League?


Manchester City may find themselves three points behind the league leaders, but the fixture schedule seems to be in their favor for the final stretch.

Out of their last eight matches, only one is against a top-six team, with just two more facing top-10 sides. The remaining five fixtures are against teams either struggling at the bottom of the table or with little left to play for, although facing Crystal Palace, known to be a tricky opponent, adds some uncertainty. Additionally, an away trip to Tottenham, where City haven’t yet won in the Premier League at their new stadium, poses a challenge.

Interestingly, Ange Postecoglu’s Celtic side still have matches against all three title-contending teams, potentially influencing the destination of the championship.

Liverpool’s run-in appears more challenging, with three encounters against top-six teams—Spurs, United, and Villa—alongside the Merseyside derby against Everton, although the latter should be a match they are expected to win comfortably.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal face what could be considered the toughest run-in among the three contenders. They are scheduled to play against traditional rivals United and Spurs, as well as Chelsea, who despite their position, remain formidable opponents. Additionally, they encounter four other top-12 teams, with only one match against a lower-ranked team.

All three teams will conclude their season with home fixtures, potentially setting the stage for a dramatic final day.

While Manchester City has a favorable fixture list, they must overcome their recent form struggles and close the gap with consistent performances. Any slip-up could prove costly in their bid for the title.
