Premier League Title and Top-Four Predictions

The 2021-22 Premier League campaign is approaching its tail-end, with Manchester City and Liverpool going head-to-head in the title race.

Third-placed Chelsea are seemingly waltzing away with a top-three finish, which leaves the remaining Champions League qualification spot open for the taking.

With a coveted fourth-place finish up for grabs, four sides with equal chances of joining the above mentioned trio in next year's competition are embroiled in an enthralling race.

Premier League title run-in

Ahead of Sunday's top-table six-pointer between Man City and Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium, only one point separates the two most in-form English sides.

Rated at 2.65 to claim the award, Liverpool are well behind Man City in the outright market, according to Soccer Betway.

Brimming with confidence following a hard-fought 1-0 Champions League win over Atletico Madrid, Pep Guardiola's men will head into proceedings in high spirits.

Seeking their fourth Premier League title in six years and second on the trot, the Cityzens have hit the ground running since a 3-2 home loss to Tottenham Hotspur, racking up three wins from four league games (D1).

Guardiola boasts arguably the best and deepest roster in England's top-flight, which could tip the scales in their favor down the final stretch of the season.

Headline performer Kevin De Bruyne has hit his stride following an injury-riddled start to the season, yet a lack of an out-and-out striker could be an issue for the reigning champions.

As for Liverpool, last weekend's 2-0 home triumph over relegation-battling Watford made it 10 league wins in a row for the title challengers, who are in the midst of a purple patch.

Jurgen Klopp's high-flyers recorded a comprehensive 3-1 first-leg win at Benfica in midweek to put their Champions League quarter-final tie beyond doubt, where they are the betting favorites with Betway to reach the Champions League final.

With momentum firmly on their side and standout forwards Luis Diaz, Sadio Mane, and Mohamed Salah firing on all cylinders, the Reds are in good shape to stun the Etihad at the weekend.

The outcome of the upcoming showdown in Manchester will have a significant bearing on the title race, and we expect Liverpool to overtake Man City at the top of the standings.

All things considered, the Merseyside heavyweights look to be in pole position to win their second Premier League title in three years.

Premier League top-four race

Tottenham's impressive come-from-behind 5-1 home victory over Newcastle United last time out extended their winning league streak to three matches and helped them leapfrog Arsenal to fourth.

Spurs have enjoyed quite a revival under Antonio Conte and despite Betway and other bookmakers favoring Arsenal, we back Tottenham to beat the Gunners, Manchester United and West Ham United to a fourth-place finish.

Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, and marquee January signing Dejan Kulusevski have forged a formidable attacking trident that has been too hot to handle lately.

If Tottenham remain on this trajectory, they should return to the Champions League after a two-season hiatus with ease.

Mikel Arteta's men could throw a spanner in the works, yet an underwhelming 3-0 loss away to Crystal Palace on Monday exposed their vulnerability in tricky fixtures.

Unfortunately for the Gunners faithful, Arsenal will face a few high-profile opponents down the final stretch, including matches against Chelsea, Man United, Tottenham, and West Ham.

The Red Devils cannot catch a break, having won just once across their last four Premier League outings (D2, L1), courtesy of a 3-2 success against Spurs of all teams.

Despite Cristiano Ronaldo's utmost efforts to inspire Ralf Rangnick's side to another top-four finish, it appears as if the Old Trafford outfit have run out of steam.

With all due respect to West Ham's utterly outstanding season under David Moyes, they will have to produce nothing short of miraculous to pip English big guns to a coveted Champions League finish.
