How will the next few games impact Arsenal and Man City's chances of winning this season's Premier League title?

Arsenal have held an eight-point lead over Manchester City at the top the Premier League for most of January, but the Citizens reduced the gap to five points after a 3-0 home win against Wolves.

Mikel Arteta's men have won seven of their last eight league fixtures barring the goalless draw against Newcastle United, after which the Gunners clinched the North London derby with a 2-0 result over Tottenham and got the better of Manchester United in a five-goal thriller.

On the other hand, City have responded to the 2-1 Manchester derby defeat at the hands of Manchester United by beating Tottenham 4-2 but have played a game more than Arsenal after the Wolves win.

The sides are yet to play each other in the Premier League - which could potentially define the title race - and before they do, the two teams have several crucial fixtures to come.
