Arsenal receive Premier League title race boost after fixture change

Gunners still have to go through tough tests to end their title drought

The Premier League title race is set for an exhilarating climax with key games rescheduled for live TV coverage. The changes impact top contenders Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City.

Arsenal's clash with Manchester United, initially slated for Saturday, May 11, has been moved to Sunday, May 12. This change comes after Sky Sports picked the match for live coverage. The shift gives Mikel Arteta's side an extra day of rest following their game against Bournemouth.

Liverpool will then face Aston Villa on Monday, May 13 before Manchester City vs Tottenham on Tuesday, May 14. These penultimate fixtures could be decisive in the title race as they are scheduled just a week before the final round of matches on Sunday, May 19.

Final day clash could determine title winner

Currently leading the table with 71 points but only ahead of Liverpool based on goal difference; these fixture changes could provide a significant boost to Arsenal’s title hopes.

The final day clash between Arsenal and Everton at Emirates Stadium is shaping up to be a pivotal fixture in deciding this season’s champion. This match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports along with Liverpool's encounter with Wolves at Anfield - Jurgen Klopp's last league game as manager of the Reds.

Manchester City will also have their hands full as they take on West Ham at Etihad Stadium. With all three teams vying for supremacy in what promises to be a nail-biting finish to the season; every point counts more than ever.

All three names in contention to clinch title with City favourites

Arsenal aims to end its two-decade wait for another Premier League title after narrowly missing out last season when they finished second behind Manchester City. They are keenly focused on maintaining their lead over rivals and securing that coveted trophy.

Manchester City, under the stewardship of Pep Guardiola, is gunning for their fourth consecutive Premier League win. However, they currently trail Arsenal and Liverpool by a single point and have the worst goal difference among the top three teams. This puts them at a disadvantage if teams finish level on points unless there's a turn of events before season-end.

Liverpool seeks to clinch their second Premier League title as an apt farewell gift for Klopp. Despite only losing two games this season, they have been held to a draw eight times which has affected their standing in the league.

The rescheduled fixtures add another layer of intrigue to an already thrilling title race. With Arsenal leading but closely followed by Liverpool and Manchester City; every game from now until May 19 promises high stakes drama that will keep sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts on edge till the very end.
