The Gunners haven’t lost this year and have been in fine form, beating title rivals Liverpool in February and going from strength to strength. 

Mikel Arteta has his side flying and they’ll be aiming to go one step further than last season by beating Man City to the crown. 

The experience of their collapse last year will haunt them but their 0-0 draw at the Etihad proved the current team are made of sterner stuff.

The Gunners ran out 3-0 winners away at Brighton to remain unbeaten in the Premier League in 2024 with ten victories from 11 matches.

Despite their dominance, Arsenal still arguably have the toughest run-in on paper, having face Tottenham and Man United away from home in their final four games. 

In between all of these crucial games, the Gunners also face Bayern in the Champions League quarter-finals meaning injuries and fatigue could play a huge part. 

Predicted finish – 3rd

  • Wolves vs Arsenal – April 20
  • Tottenham vs Arsenal – April 27
  • Arsenal vs Bournemouth – May 4
  • Man United vs Arsenal – May 11
  • Arsenal vs Everton – May 19

Liverpool – 2nd 

Liverpool sit in second with the title now out of their hands heading into the final seven games.

However, Jurgen Klopp is leaving the Reds at the end of the season and remains desperate to end on a high. 

Anfield is going to be rocking for every game and it’s unlikely that they will lose any of their remaining home games. 

Their Old Trafford woes show Liverpool remain rocky on the road and they do still have several tough away games themselves.

Injuries have plagued Liverpool all season though and any more issues could prove very tough to deal with. 

They will also be competing to win the Europa League, with that possibly impacting what is a tough run-in for Klopp’s side.

Predicted finish – 2nd

  • West Ham vs Liverpool – April 27
  • Liverpool vs Tottenham – May 4
  • Aston Villa vs Liverpool – May 11
  • Liverpool vs Wolves – May 19

Manchester City – 3rd 

City are used to this type of title race. 

Pep Guardiola’s side usually come out on top in a pressured situation and after winning a historic treble last season, they clearly know how to step up. 

That experience of winning trophies will prove to be crucial once again for City and despite being third, they will back themselves to leapfrog their rivals. 

Although they failed to beat Arsenal, their final few games will please them, only playing one more ‘Big Six’ side in Spurs until the end of the season. 

City will be going for Champions League and FA Cup glory too with a quarter-final tie against Real Madrid and a semi-final against Chelsea coming up next. 

However, they have managed to deal with multiple competitions at once before and there’s no doubt they are capable of doing it again. 

Predicted finish – 1st 

Man City's treble win proves they can deal with the pressure at this stage
