There are 10 games to go for everyone bar Chelsea and Brighton, but the midweek results would seem to have turned a three-way battle for the title into a two-horse race. Tottenham’s defeat at Chelsea means it’s Liverpool v Manchester City at the top of the table, while Southampton’s home victory over Fulham – who responded by sacking Claudio Ranieri – leaves the west Londoners in almost doomed territory alongside Huddersfield.
The title rivals both travel this weekend: Man City to leaky Bournemouth, and Liverpool across Stanley Park to face a pumped-up Everton. Tottenham host Arsenal in a north London derby that is now also a clash with top-four implications, while Manchester United – still unbeaten in the league under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – welcome Southampton to Old Trafford. We stay in London for our captain’s pick, though – although west, rather than north.
