Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City battle for Premier League title

For the first time since 2014, just one point separates the top three after 28 games played.

As reported by Daily Trust, Arsenal currently sit top of the table with 64 points. Liverpool are second with 64 points too but with a lower goal difference while Man City sit third with 63 points. However, on paper, City look the most likely to retain the trophy this season as they have mastered the art of navigating the difficult end of the season.

Liverpool are also doing great, grinding out results in the difficult games. The Reds want to win the trophy for their departing coach, Jurgen Klopp. The return of key players from injury may also help them be in good stead to win the League.
