EPL Week 26 Scores, Table & Standings: Leicester City Face Arsenal in Crucial Match, Manchester City to Collide With Tottenham
Leicester City will look to keep Tottenham, Manchester City and Arsenal afloat in Week 26 of the 2015-16 English Premier League season.
Arsenal Host League Leader at Emirates Stadium
Leicester City, who are currently on top of the Premier League table with 53 points in 25 matches, will visit Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal on Sunday. The Foxes are five points clear of the Gunners and a win will help them maintain their precarious lead in the title race.
However, odds are not in Leicester City's favor because they were manhandled by the Gunners during their first meeting, where Arsenal cruised to a 5-2 win at King Power Stadium in September. According to the league's official website, Arsenal have won in 12 of their last 18 meetings, with the other six matches ending in a draw.
Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City to Collide
Meanwhile, the Tottenham Hotspur will look to stay second to Leicester City but they will have to bring their A-game against Manchester City on Sunday at Etihad Stadium.
Tottenham have racked up 48 points from 13 wins, nine draws and three defeats. A loss against Manchester City on Sunday could push them down to fourth place.
The Spurs have won in their last four games, while Manchester City are coming off a 1-3 defeat to Leicester City in Week 25, which dropped them to fourth in the table.
Manchester City will have enough confidence heading into the match, as they have won in their last five matches with Tottenham at Etihad Stadium, the league's official website indicated. Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has also played well against Tottenham, scoring 10 goals in their last eight matchups.
