Premier League Title Race: Battle for the title enters final lap.



Surely there’s going to be someone somewhere lifting the Premier League title at the end of the league season. As the race becomes more interesting and intense, could the pressure see the league leaders Arsenal lose the title or could they hold firm to see the red ribbon at the end, to win their first league title since 2004? It looks like a battle of the Master and the student as Pep Guardiola go head-to-head with his former assistant manager Mikel Arteta for the league’s most prestigious crown.


Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola is no stranger to the league title as he has won it four times already in just six years and his side are currently the league holders. They also boast of an unstoppable goalscorer in Erling Haaland who looks to be breaking every goalscoring record in his first season in the league. The Norwegian forward is the highest goalscorer in not just the league but the whole of Europe this season and his 28 league strikes is the highest goal tally of any player in the league this season in just 26 league games.


After the Cityzens 4-1 thrashing of Liverpool at the Etihad, the gap was temporarily reduced to 5 points between them and the league leaders Arsenal but the eight-point difference was restored few hours after that as Arsenal matched the same scoreline at the Emirates Stadium against Leeds. Guardiola’s men are in the hunt for three major titles as they face Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals ofthe UEFA Champions League, Sheffield United in the semi-finals ofthe FA Cup, as well as their strong challenge in the hunt for thePremier League title with 10 games to go.


Southampton (Away), Leicester City (Home), Arsenal (Home), Fulham (Away), West Ham (Home), Leeds (Home), Everton (Away), Chelsea (Home) and Brentford (Away) are all Manchester city remaining games in the league as they look to overtake Arsenal in the race for the title.


Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side are definitely the biggest surprise of the season but have shown their performances are not just a thing of luck but consistency as they are currently on a 7-game winning streak in the League and have only 9 games to play (all League fixtures) between now and the end of the season. All focus and attention for the season have been shifted to the League as the North London side have been knocked out of every other club competition this season and certainly the Gunners can begin to dream of their first PL title after 19 years as their team sit top of the table with just 9 games to go.


Arteta’s side seem to find goals from all cylinder as every outfield player in their ‘most consistent’ starting line-up this season have found the net at least once. Team work seem to be key for the gunners as their team are noticeably playing some good free-flowing attacking football and seem to somehow find the back of the net every time, as they have only failed to score on two occasions in the league this season, a goalless draw against a resilient Newcastle side at the Emirates and a 1-0 Sean Dyche’s typical scoreline against Everton.


Liverpool (Away), West Ham (Away), Southampton (Home), Manchester City (Away), Chelsea (Home), Newcastle (Away), Brighton (Home), Nottingham Forest (Away) and Wolves (Home) are the remaining fixtures for Arsenal.


Would it be Arsenal’s red ribbon (after 19 years) or City’s Sky Blue (yet again) that would be on the Premier League title come 28th of May, 2023 or would there be a surprise twist in the final stages with an unexpected winner? We wait to find out…
