What to expect from these three sides after the international break

Manchester City, guided by their Spanish tactician Pep Guardiola, are aiming to secure a fourth consecutive league title, a feat unprecedented in English football history. While City dominated Arsenal in last year’s run-in, the Gunners have re-entered the fray this season, joined by a resurgent Liverpool team set for an emotional final few months under Jürgen Klopp’s leadership on Merseyside.

The recent draw at Anfield between Klopp’s Liverpool and Guardiola’s City set the stage for a thrilling conclusion to the season. With Arsenal currently leading the pack by a narrow margin, the Premier League’s return from the international break in March will feature another blockbuster fixture as Mikel Arteta’s side visits the Etihad to take on the reigning champions, having already defeated City earlier in the season.

As the Premier League title race enters April, the true run-in begins. But which team has the most favourable fixtures, and who faces the toughest challenges in the season’s final stretch?

Table-toppers Arsenal lead the way by just a single point, but can they maintain their position until the end of the season? If last season is any indication, Mikel Arteta’s team faces a monumental task. However, this season, they have shown maturity and composure that was lacking in the past.

Last season, the Gunners won only three of their final nine Premier League matches, including a four-game winless streak that allowed City to clinch the title. Such a collapse cannot be afforded this season, with rivals Liverpool and Manchester City showing no signs of slowing down.

Arsenal’s toughest fixture in the run-in is expected to be against City at the Etihad, a venue where they have suffered eight previous defeats. They also have challenging matches against Aston Villa and a North London derby on the horizon. Additionally, they will face Brighton, Wolves, and a daunting trip to Old Trafford, where they have historically struggled.

Liverpool also face a tough road ahead. Following their draw against City, the Reds must now focus on a visit to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United, their fierce rivals. Klopp’s men know they must be at their best to overcome a determined United side looking to derail their title aspirations.

Liverpool will then face a resolute Everton team at Goodison Park, known for its intense Merseyside derbies. While Everton may be battling relegation, disrupting Liverpool’s title bid could provide them with a much-needed boost. Klopp’s team will also encounter a resurgent Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield and a challenging trip to Aston Villa, who are pushing for a Champions League spot. Other notable fixtures for Liverpool include visits to West Ham and Fulham’s Craven Cottage.

While Liverpool and Arsenal face tough challenges, Manchester City is not exempt. Guardiola’s side will be immediately thrown into the thick of the action following the international break with a crucial clash against table-toppers Arsenal. This match could potentially determine the eventual title winner.

City will also face Aston Villa at home, followed by an away game against Tottenham, who are determined to secure a Champions League spot. The season finale will see City take on West Ham, with other fixtures against Brighton, Wolves, and potentially relegated Luton.

Each team is set for a challenging path in the race for the Premier League title, and with the league’s unpredictability, it is difficult to predict where the trophy will end up. One thing is certain: football fans are in for what could be one of the most thrilling title races the league has ever witnessed.
