In the latest fixture of the English Premier League, Manchester City suffered a 0-1 defeat to Arsenal as guests, currently placing them third in the league, trailing the leading pair by a mere two points. Temporary setbacks do not perturb the analysts at Opta, who bestow an 80.1% chance of securing the title upon Guardiola's proteges.

Little faith is vested in Tottenham, with a mere 1.5% likelihood of clinching the championship, while Arsenal is granted a 5.4% chance. Liverpool is deemed the chief contender for City, with a 12.2% probability of victory for the Merseysiders in the championship. According to this resource, the top four in England should materialize as follows:

  1. Manchester City
  2. Liverpool
  3. Arsenal
  4. Tottenham

Apart from the aforementioned quartet, Newcastle holds the highest chances of securing the top spot, albeit a meager 0.4%. Now, all that remains is to observe whether the forecasts of this analytical platform come to fruition. The battle for the championship this season promises to be enthralling. Manchester City has experienced two recent setbacks in England, but this club knows how to claim titles, and the crisis should not linger. In the upcoming fixture, Guardiola's squad will face Brighton at home, yet another challenging encounter. The international break may affect participants in the championship race differently, and avoiding point losses becomes imperative.
