It is certainly going to be an interesting climax to the Premier League season. Many teams are still battling to remain and survive the drop into the Championship. Also, many clubs are battling it out for the Champions League places and the title race is still very much ongoing. The two big dogs, Arsenal and Manchester City are battling it out to get their hands on the Premier League trophy come the end of the season.
At the time of writing, Arsenal are currently sitting six points clear of Manchester City. City do have a game in hand on Arsenal though, so if they can win that, they will close the gap to just three points and the two teams face each other on the 26th of April, which could well end up determining who gets their hands on the Premier League trophy come the end of the season.
Currently, Arsenal are on an 8-game unbeaten run after drawing against Liverpool in their previous Premier League game. The main thing about the change in Arsenal this season is their defensive record, only conceding twenty-nine goals in thirty league games, which is an average of 1.03 goals conceded per game. Arsenal have scored a whopping seventy-two goals, which on average is 2.4 goals per game. With statistics like this, no wonder they are at the top of the Premier League.
Manchester City are currently also on an eight-game unbeaten run. After beating Southampton 4-1 at St Marys last weekend, Manchester City continue to add pressure on the league leaders as they look to overtake them come the end of the season. As mentioned previously, the huge game between the two in the Premier League is on the 26th of April, where Manchester City will be looking to close the gap between the two sides and Manchester City will be looking to win the league yet again, which would make it three Premier League titles in a row. Manchester City currently have a better defensive record than Arsenal this season. They are averaging 0.93 goals conceded per game and they are also averaging scoring 2.58 goals a game.
