Premier League title race: Current form, key fixtures, injuries, odds, predictions

Joe Prince-Wright, Nick Mendola and Andy Edwards preview second-place Arsenal’s trip to face third-place Newcastle at St. James' Park.

The Premier League title race is (probably) going down to the wire in the 2022-23 season, where every remaining game matters -- especially for Arsenal.

It’s only gotten tighter as the season’s gone on, and Arsenal may have just effectively thrown away the Premier League title by falling 4-1 to the imperious Citizens, though the Gunners showed their spirit by rebounding to pound Chelsea 3-1.

And now the bookmakers are seeing Man City ahead by one point and having a game in-hand and they are feeling decidedly bullish on the two-time defending champions.

Can Arsenal still win the first Premier League title since 2003-04? Will Manchester City win three in a row to make it five titles in the last six seasons under Pep Guardiola?

Every match matters, of course, and Man City is still navigating three competitions while Arsenal focuses on the Premier League alone (Granted, the FA Cup Final isn’t until after the season, but matches against Real Madrid in the Champions League semifinals will demand plenty from Pep Guardiola’s men).

Below is a look at the key fixtures, current form, odds and predictions for the contenders to be crowned Premier League champions.
