Arsenal and Manchester City are fighting for the Premier League title in one of the tightest races in league history.

Manchester City defeated Fulham 4-0 at Craven Cottage to climb to 85 points, 2 points clear of second-placed Arsenal with two games to spare.

At the end of this weekend, the Gunners will have played one game more than City, a crucial match-up against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Who will win the Premier League title?

The truth is, as good as Mikel Arteta's men have been, they cannot win the league title unless Man City drop points.

If Manchester City win their remaining two games, then they will win the league.

Their record away at Tottenham means this is far from a straightforward affair for Guardiola's men.

They have won just once in their last 5 trips to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (D1, L3), and another defeat here could hand the title to Arsenal.
