Manchester in two-horse race for the title as Arsenal and Liverpool are left behind

The two Manchester clubs look set to battle it out for the Premier League title alone after their latest victories on Sunday.

Chelsea may remain an outside bet after their convincing 4-0 victory over Stoke on Saturday, but the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool have been left flagging far behind.
