IT'S London v Manchester for the English Premier title with the northern sides having the upperhand at the moment.
United and City fill the first two spots after victories yesterday while Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs make up the top five. Out of the challengers it's actually Spurs who look best bets to push to the finishing line.
That view could change tonight when Arsenal meet Chelsea in a game neither side can afford to lose. Chelsea, for example, will be six points behind United having played a game more, if they are beaten at the Emirates.
It's such a big game that I sense a tense, nervy affair and a draw could be the shout.
Neither side looks particularly great at the moment although the Gunners were going well until United brought them back to reality by beating them at Old Trafford.
Chelsea have drawn their last three games 1-1, including a decent display at Spurs, and have a craking record against Arsenal, losing just two in 18 and winning the last two 3-0 and 4-1.
They will be boosted by the return of Frank Lampard who is a biggest 9-1 with Coral to score first but the man who must be considered for the opener is Didier Drogba who has netted 13 in his last 13 matches against Arsenal. The Ivory Coast striker is 6-1 with Coral.
Sammy Nasri has been the Gunners top man this season and is 8-1 with Stan James to bag the opener. Skipper Cesc Fabregas is 9-1 at Coral.
