With City on a relentless run of late and still to face two teams that have each been struggling badly with their form (Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham), they are still favourites with the Opta supercomputer to win the English Premier League (EPL) title.

Presently, they (City) have a 58.7% chance of winning the EPL title while Mikel Arteta's Arsenal side take the remaining 41.3%.

Per artificial intelligence, that is the highest Arsenal's title chances have been in the 2023-2024 season.

Apart from supercomputer, many pundits and football fans believe that the title is still in Man City’s hands. If they win all their games from Tuesday, May 14, the EPL title will be theirs.
