Man United in pole position, but Arsenal set to overtake on home straight?

I think we can pretty much agree that the race for the 2010/11 Premier League title is now between two teams: Manchester United and Arsenal. The Gunners were given a real boost earlier this week as London neighbours Chelsea did them a favour by turning over Man United at Stamford Bridge. Arsene Wenger’s men can now capitalise on this by securing three points at home to Sunderland, and with the Red Devils facing a tricky trip to Liverpool tomorrow, at the end of the weekend Arsenal could be within striking distance. Taking the run-ins into account, who do you think is in pole position for the title?

Arsenal arguably have the easier run-in. They have a tricky two game period in the middle of April as they face Liverpool at The Emirates Stadium and then travel to White Hart Lane to take on Tottenham, but other than that there is only really one fixture that stands out. Manchester United face some tough games in the upcoming months. In addition to taking on the Reds this weekend, they still have to play Chelsea at home, and the Blues will have taken plenty of confidence from their victory this week.

It is quite possible that the destination of the Premier League title in 2011 will come down to one game. On Sunday 1st May the two rivals go head-to-head at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal will be happy that they’ll have home advantage, but depending on how results go, Man United may only need a draw from that game. However, that could be the time that the Gunners overtake the Red Devils in the race for the title, and there is no better time to do it than in the home straight!
