Will Chelsea run away with the title? If somebody can catch them, who will it be?
Chelsea host Arsenal on Saturday (Watch live, 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) and if the Blues win it will leave Arsenal 13 points behind them with 14 games to go. That would seemingly knock another team out of the race and both Manchester City and Manchester United already seem like massive outsiders for the crown.
Tottenham and Liverpool are the only hopes to seriously challenge Chelsea and the latter aren’t exactly in sparkling form despite their valiant draw against Antonio Conte‘s rampant Blues.

Marseille made a splash this season when the club re-signed Dimitri Payet, who was playing with Premier League side West Ham at the time.
The team does boast several quality attacking options such as Payet and Bafetimbi Gomis, but Giroud could serve as an ideal target man in the Marseille attack.
Prior to joining the Gunners in 2012, Giroud starred for Montpellier and with a potential link-up in the attack with a creator like Payet, it could present a dangerous attacking threat to the rest of Ligue 1.
Giroud, 30, has scored 95 goals in all competitions since arriving in London with Arsenal.
In the case of Spurs, that man is right back Kyle Walker. The 26-year-old has also played right mid in 8 of his 35 matches for Tottenham this season, and was named in the PFA Team of the Year. It’s hard to believe Spurs would have interest in selling Walker, who would help fill the role of retiring Philipp Lahm.
On the other side is Alexis Sanchez, the embattled but electric Arsenal attacker who Arsene Wenger described as an “animal” and “always ready to kill the opponent” this weekend. Wenger says Sanchez isn’t going anywhere, but Bayern does boast Chilean teammate Arturo Vidal and former Barca mate Thiago Alcantara.
Walker is signed at Spurs through 2021, while Sanchez’s contract ends after next season.
