We are officially in the business end of the Premier League season where pretenders will be separated from contenders. It is a three-horse race with Liverpool leading the way with Manchester City and Arsenal closely following behind.

The Gunners could go top temporarily on Saturday if they continue their impressive form by beating Brentford at the Emirates Stadium in front of the home fans. Liverpool and Manchester City are set to face off at Anfield in what many think may truly test the true characters of the top two teams in the title race.

The race for the title is one of the tightest in recent years, adding excitement for neutral spectators, but for fans of the three contending clubs, nerves are kicking in.

Arsenal, in particular, are feeling the pressure after slipping in the standings last season despite briefly leading Manchester City. 

Speaking on The Overlap podcast, former Liverpool captain, Jamie Carragher predicts that Arsenal will once again falter, citing the challenging away fixtures they are set to face. 

Carragher highlighted tough away games against Tottenham, City, Wolves, Brighton, and Manchester United, suggesting that these matches might prove to be stumbling blocks for the Gunners.

“You have got tough away games. It’s Tottenham, City, Wolves, Brighton and Man United. I think that will just stop you. If Man City don’t lose points in the next four or five games, your last four or five are decent games, your tough ones are now. It’s got to be here or now for Arsenal,” Carragher said.

However, Arsenal holds an advantage in the Premier League run-in compared to their title rivals. A home win against Brentford on Saturday could propel Mikel Arteta’s side to the top of the table. With only two points separating the three contenders, Arsenal aims to capitalise on any factor that could give them an edge over Liverpool and Manchester City.

Arsenal’s remarkable run since the start of the year, featuring seven consecutive league wins and an impressive goal tally of 31 while conceding just three, positions them as serious contenders. 

While Arsenal may be eyeing key away clashes with Manchester City, Aston Villa, and Tottenham in the coming months, their fixtures against relegation-threatened teams Brentford, Luton Town, and Everton could balance the equation. The average position of Arsenal’s remaining opponents is 9.9, slightly higher than that of Liverpool and Manchester City.

Liverpool, facing contenders for European football, have a relatively tougher run-in, with an average opponent position of 9.54. Meanwhile, Manchester City, having back-to-back games against Liverpool and Arsenal, followed by a clash with Villa, are on the most challenging trajectory, with an average opponent position of 9.09.
