Who will win the Premier League title?

BetMindsBetMinds

With just 12 games of the season left to play, this season is shaping up to have the most unpredictable climax in years as the title race remains wide open.

Manchester United are currently 5th, manager Louis van Gaal's admission that the Europa League is their best chance of reaching the Champions League suggests that this is now a 4 horse race.

So will it be Arsenal, Leicester, Tottenham or Manchester City to take this years title? Lets review each challenger

Arsenal Current best odds 2.63 Betway

The Danny Welbeck last minute winner against Leicester might be the goal that decides the title race. This will work wonders in terms of belief and confidence within the team. Add to the fact the squad is slowly coming back to full strength after a bad run of injuries will only see their quality on the pitch improve. Alexis Sanchez and Coquelin are already back, and Santi Carzola will be available soon. If Arsenal can remain relatively injury free then the title could be theirs for the taking.

Key Game - Tottenham Away on the 5th March

Tottenham Current best odds 3.75 Netbet

Spurs have all the momentum at the moment. They are a young team and fear no one which will help them to maintain a serious challenge all the way to the end of the season. Spurs have the best defence conceding only 0.77 goals on average. Combine this with a striker (Kane) that is really now getting into his stride suggests the momentum could take them all the way to the title. Again however it will come down to injuries, Spurs really only have Kane as an option for an out and out striker, an injury to him or to playmaker Alli could scupper their chances.

Key Game - Home to Arsenal on the 5th March

Leicester Current best odds 4.0 Bet365

Leicester have been heroic this year, and have provided a lesson in both team play and endeavour. They are still two points clear at the top of the table and have both Vardy and Mahrez who arguably are the two players of the season. They are free of all other competitions, unlike the other three challengers, which means they can concentrate their efforts exclusively on winning the title. The last minute defeat to Arsenal though will be a huge mental blow and they will need to dig deep to find the strength and confidence to maintain their challenge. Keeping Mahrez, Vardy and Huth injury free is key.

Key Game - None, Leicester's fixture list is relatively kind and free of any other competitions.

Manchester City Current best odds 8.0 Skybet

Manchester City remain injury ridden, they have lost, among others, Kevin De Bruyne and Vincent Kompany and now there are doubts over David Silva who has not recaptured his best form since his most recent ankle injury. Pellegrini being replaced at the end of the season will not help his task of motivating his players in the dressing room. However with Aguero back to form, they have the best striker in the premier league to help push there already impressive average goal tally higher (1.78 a game, second only to Leicester this season). A return by the talisman Kompany over the weekend is a welcome sign for the team. They have five must win games in the run in against Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Stoke and Arsenal.

Key Game - The penultimate game of the season, they face Arsenal at Home

Summary

We believe it will come down to the two North London sides of Arsenal and Tottenham, and it could very well be on the 5th March when these two teams meet that the title race will be decided. Tottenham at 3.75 is a great price and will invariably trade lower as the season reaches its climax.
