Premier League futures: Coming down to wire between Liverpool, Man City, Arsenal

There are just six weeks left in the Premier League campaign and for most clubs, that means eight more games. The title race is essentially down to three teams at this point, which isn’t too much of a surprise. Arsenal is at the top of the table with 68 points, but Manchester City and Liverpool are right on their heels with 67 points. However, the Reds play on Thursday, which could see them move into first place and two points clear. Below, we’ll discuss the Premier League futures and give some analysis as to who just might lift the grand prize in late May.

Quick Take

  • Liverpool is a slim favorite in the Premier League futures
  • Man City and Arsenal aren’t far behind
  • Who will win the title?


What a season it’s been for the Gunners. They’re into the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the first time in years and remain very much in the EPL title race. Mikel Arteta’s men own a 21-5-4 record, bagging a league-best 72 goals while conceding a top-flight-low of 24. This side is truly firing on all cylinders and just beat Luton Town 2-0 on Wednesday to grab another three points. If we look at Arsenal’s remaining schedule, their toughest matches come against Aston Villa, Tottenham, and Manchester United. Some would say Chelsea is a difficult task, but considering how poorly the Blues are playing, the Gunners should comfortably beat them. 

Regardless, Man City and Liverpool are slightly above the North Londoners in the title odds at most soccer betting sites.


Another Premier League triumph would surely be a fantastic ending to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool tenure, wouldn’t it? Well, it’s definitely a realistic possibility. The Merseysiders lock horns with Sheffield United on Thursday, which should be an easy three points to move them into top spot. Klopp’s group has only tasted defeat twice this term and has arguably the most electrifying attack in the world with the likes of Mo Salah, Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz, and Cody Gakpo, among others, all capable of producing the goods in the final third. Defensively, they’ve been a mile better than 2022-23, only allowing 27 goals compared to 47 last season. Liverpool has a few games that could be a battle before the campaign closes against Spurs, Man United, and Aston Villa. A victory on Thursday however would put the Reds in a nice position for the time being. They have +120 odds at 888sport.

Manchester City

Could another treble be in the cards for City? They’re a favorite to win the Champions League again and have made it through to the FA Cup semifinals, too. As for the Premier League, Pep Guardiola’s squad looks unstoppable as usual. Not only is Erling Haaland bagging goals at an impressive rate but youngster Phil Foden is enjoying a breakout campaign, just hitting 20 goals across all competitions in Wednesday’s 4-1 thrashing of Villa where he scored a brace. The Sky Blues haven’t lost in the Premier League since early December and have a 20-7-3 record overall. And out of all three contenders, they probably have the easiest schedule to finish the season. They don’t face any Big Six opponents in league action. City could certainly win a sixth title in the last seven seasons by the time late May rolls around.
