Ten games, three teams and one trophy - but who will lift it?

Manchester City are pushing for an unprecedented fourth consecutive Premier League trophy but in their way are Arsenal and Liverpool.

Mikel Arteta's side are the visitors to Etihad Stadium on Sunday for a game that could go a long way to deciding who wins the title.

BBC Radio Manchester's Natalie Pike is "confident" City will get the right result and leapfrog Mikel Arteta's side in the table.

"We have the psychological edge over them from when we beat them three times last season," she told the We're Not Really Here podcast.

"There is a good chance that we go back into this game from the international break and we click and we look like the team from last season."

City are currently third, just one point behind their title rivals who both have 64 points.

"I think we are going to win every game that is left in the league," added The Wanted's Max George. "I am just hoping that Liverpool don't!"

Jurgen Klopp's men start their run-in by hosting Brighton at Anfield on Sunday, but BBC Radio Manchester's Mike Minay says it is not them who City should be most worried about.

"Arsenal do not get involved in this conversation around the title race half as much as Liverpool, yet I think they are here to stay," he said. "Saying that, they have a very difficult run-in."
