Arsenal’s 1-0 win at Manchester United on Super Sunday means this season’s thrilling Premier League title race will now definitely go all the way down to the final day – and you can watch it all unfold live on Sky Sports.
Mikel Arteta’s side went back to the top of the table with victory at Old Trafford and now lead Man City by a point ahead of their final match against Everton at the Emirates next Sunday.
And that means all eyes now switch to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday night when the champions take on Tottenham in what is their game in hand – live on Sky Sports – before concluding the campaign against West Ham United at the Etihad on May 19.
So what do each side need to do to get their hands on the Premier League trophy next weekend and could the title really be decided by goal difference?

City need to win their final two games at Spurs and at home to West Ham on the final day to be guaranteed becoming the first team in history to win four successive top-flight titles.
However, if Arsenal fail to beat Everton at home in their last game, then City would only need to win one of their final two games to be crowned champions.
And there is even the possibility of the title being decided by goal difference were both sides to end the campaign level on points!

Mikel Arteta’s team need to beat Everton on the final day and hope City do not win their last two matches.
The Gunners could also be crowned champions if they draw with the Toffees and the champions only picked up a point from their remaining two matches.
And as previously mentioned, the title could go down to goal difference were both sides to end the campaign level on points!
As discussed, this season’s epic title race could still finish with both Arsenal and City level on points.
For that scenario to unfold, either Arsenal must draw their last game with Everton and City draw their final two matches, or Arsenal lose their final game and City only pick up one point from their last two matches.
Remember Agueroooooo?! How could you forget?! Manchester City edged Manchester United to the 2011/12 Premier League crown on goal difference after Sergio Aguero’s 94th minute winner against QPR ensured they both finished level on 89 points.
And both could also be tied at the top if Arsenal beat Everton and City only collect four points from their last two games.
Arsenal currently have a +3 superior goal difference heading into the final week of the season.
If the two teams do end up level on points after 38 games, then the side with the superior goal difference will be crowned champions.
C.17.3. if two Clubs cannot be separated by operation of Rule C.17.1 or C.17.2, a play-off on a neutral ground, the format, timing and venue of which shall be determined by the Board.
However, if they are tied on goal difference, then it will come down to goals scored, with City having currently scored 91 to Arsenal’s 89 goals.
And if the two rivals cannot be separated after that, then it comes down to results between the two, which would go in Arsenal’s favour after they beat City 1-0 at the Emirates in October, before drawing 0-0 at the Etihad in March.
As a result, we cannot get a playoff to decide this season’s title!
