To Win Outright

Man City and Arsenal set for crunch clash

The game of this Premier League weekend undoubtedly comes from the Etihad Stadium as Manchester City take on Arsenal, with just a solitary point between the third-placed Citizens and league leaders Arsenal in the table.

Pep Guardiola's side are striving to become the first team in English top flight history to win four consecutive titles, but Mikel Arteta's Arsenal appear determined to stop them in their tracks after finishing second behind City last term.

City remain favourites to win the league, but are now odds-against at 6/5, with this weekend's visitors to the Etihad Arsenal given odds of 11/4 to win the title.

Liverpool aim to keep the pressure on

The third participants in what is developing into one of the most pulsating Premier League title races in history are Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, with the Reds aiming to take advantage of any points dropped by Man City and Arsenal this weekend when they take on Brighton at Anfield.

Liverpool remain undefeated at home in the Premier League this term, and Klopp's charges will be confident of overcoming a Brighton side who have recorded only one win in their last six matches in all competitions under Roberto De Zerbi.

The Reds are currently priced at 2/1 to win the Premier League in Klopp's final season at the helm.

Relegation battle rages on

At the bottom end of the table, Nottingham Forest's hopes of avoiding relegation have received a hit following their four-point deduction for an alleged breach of the Premier League's Profit and Sustainability Rules.

Nuno's 18th-placed side are now priced at 11/8 to go down to the Championship as they prepare to face Oliver Glasner's Crystal Palace in a vital game at the City Ground this weekend.

News of Forest's deduction has provided the likes of Burnley and Luton Town with fresh hope of beating the drop, but the Clarets and Hatters remain odds-on to be relegated at 1/8 and 8/13 respectively.
