Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur both slipped up on Tuesday, while Manchester City and Manchester United (in fifth and sixth place respectively) are both in action on Wednesday.

This is how the table looks right now…

  1. Chelsea – Played 23 games (56 points)
  2. Tottenham – Played 23 games (47 points)
  3. Arsenal – Played 23 games (46 points)
  4. Liverpool – Played 23 games (46 points)
  5. Manchester City – Played 22 games (43 points)
  6. Manchester United – Played 22 games (41 points)

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.
