Here are the remaining games set to decide the Premier League title race

There is little between Liverpool and Man City at the moment, while Tottenham remain in with an outside chance.

AND THEN THERE were three.

While it is mathematically still possible, Chelsea’s loss to Arsenal at the weekend has realistically killed off any faint hopes they might have had of an improbable Premier League triumph this season.

Tottenham, by contrast, probably just about kept their extremely slim chances alive with a last-minute win over Claudio Ranieri’s hapless Fulham outfit.

In most people’s eyes, however, it is a race between Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

Firstly, in case you need reminding, here’s how the Premier League table looks currently…

As you can see, the Reds currently lead City by four points, while Tottenham trail the leaders by nine points. Spurs lifting the title would be a shock given their current status, but stranger things have happened in the Premier League. 

Liverpool arguably have a slight advantage in that, while City and Tottenham are still competing in both cup competitions, the Anfield outfit have exited them, hence their fixture list is marginally less hectic. How far each of the respective teams can go in Europe, with the Champions League knockout stages on the horizon, is another potentially significant factor.

In addition, given how tight it has been so far, the teams’ goal difference is worth considering — Liverpool (+41), Man City (+45), Tottenham (+25).

So here’s how the fixture list looks for the top teams as the season approaches its business end.
