Manchester City have won the Premier League in four of the past five seasons, and now look likely to add another. Take a look at when the race ends.
Who is in the English Premier League title race?
Only two teams can win the Premier League: Arsenal and Manchester City.
Arsenal, with 75 points from 33 games, are in first place as of Friday, but it may not stay that way for long.
Manchester City, with 73 points from 31 matches, is confident of the Premier League if it wins its remaining matches.

Arsenal under Mikel Arteta will likely need to be perfect for the remainder of the season and hope Pep Guardiola’s City stumbles somewhere.
City can top the table on Sunday when they visit Fulham, although Arsenal will be able to regain top spot with a win over Chelsea on Tuesday.
How many points does Manchester City need to win the title?
The maximum number of points Arsenal can score is 90 points.
This means Manchester City need 18 to get their unassailable tally of points.
If Man City win their next six matches, they will be champions.
If the two teams win all their matches, Manchester City will be crowned with a victory over Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday 24 May – its sixth match from here.
What is the earliest time Man City can win the title?
May 14th. This scenario needs Arsenal to lose matches, but it is not far from the realm of possibility.
Man City should win at Fulham (Sunday), at home to West Ham United (Wednesday) and Leeds United (May 6),
If Arsenal lose at home to Chelsea (Tuesday) and at Newcastle United (May 7), Man City can seal the title with a win over Everton on May 14.
If Arsenal draw one or both of those games, and Man City win all four, Man City could still be champions later on May 14 if Arsenal fail to win at home to Brighton.
What about Arsenal?
It’s fair to cover Arsenal.
The earliest to win the title is… May 14th!
Arsenal will need to beat Chelsea, Newcastle and Brighton but with Man City losing out to Fulham, West Ham, Leeds and Everton.
