Man City And Arsenal Keep The Heat On Log Leaders Liverpool

With leaders Liverpool otherwise engaged this weekend Manchester City and Arsenal have the chance to close the gap in what is brewing to be the closest Premier League title race in years.

Jurgen Klopp’s side struck back four times in the second half to beat Luton Town on Wednesday night after the visitors had taken a first half lead.

Liverpool stretched their lead to four points as they turn their attention to Sunday’s League Cup final against Chelsea.

Champions City, who like Arsenal have played 25 games to Liverpool’s 26, head to Bournemouth on Saturday evening whilst Arsenal face a tricky Newcastle United.

Liverpool have 60 points to City’s 56 and Arsenal’s 55 with all three sides knowing that the margins for error are minimal.

City’s draw with Chelsea last weekend snapped an 11-match winning streak in all competitions and altered the odds ever so slightly in the title race.

But a hard-fought victory over Brentford in midweek courtesy of Erling Haaland’s goal got them back on track and Pep Guardiola’s side will be expected to dispatch a Bournemouth team they beat 4-1 this time last year as they chased down Arsenal.
