Predicted Premier League table: Where Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are expected to finish
Arsenal were dealt a setback in their Premier League title charge over the weekend, losing to Newcastle United away from home, but where are they on course to finish? Manchester City took advantage of slip-ups by the rest of the top five to move top during the last round of fixtures, but there is plenty of time to make up ground.
The Gunners remain within three points of the leaders, and they will be hoping to make up that ground within the coming weeks to avoid falling further behind. The Gunners just missed out on the title to City last season, and they are desperate to go one better this time around. Although, the Premier League title race involves more than just City this season, with Liverpool and Tottenham showing promise to challenge for top spot.
City remain the favourites, while Arsenal are most people's favourites to challenge them, but Liverpool and Spurs have already shown they can't be written off, while both are likely to strengthen in January. And the January transfer window could be another of the big factors in the title race.
Though, the Gunners will need to bounce back before all that, facing Burnley this weekend, and that is arguably the perfect bounce-back fixture given the Clarets' struggles so far this season.
