As February comes to a close, the top 3 teams in the Premier League table--Liverpool (60 pts), Manchester City (59 pts), and Arsenal (58 pts)--are locked in a battle that is anyone's for the taking.

Below are the matches in March that will have the biggest impact on this exhilarating title race.

Matchday 27 (2-4 March)

Nottingham Forest v Liverpool - Saturday, 2 March

Liverpool will undoubtedly be looking to take all 3 points from this matchup, but Forest will have plenty of motivation as they battle to remain outside the relegation zone.

Manchester City v Manchester United - Sunday, 3 March

City has dominated this fixture in recent years--winning 5 of the last 6 meetings in all competitions--but Eric ten Hag maintains that his squad is making progress, and they do have the talent to pull an upset on City.

Sheffield United v Arsenal - Monday, 4 March

Arsenal will be heavily favored against bottom of the table Sheffield, but there is always pressure to take all 3 points from these games, and Arsenal will have to be disciplined to not look past this matchup.

Matchday 28 (9-11 March)

Arsenal v Brentford - Saturday, 9 March

This is another favorable matchup for Arsenal, but Brentford's attack is capable of giving Arsenal a run for their money if they are not fully locked in at kickoff.

Liverpool v Manchester City - Sunday, 10 March

Arguably the most impactful match of March will see Pep Guardiola bring his squad into Anfield with the intent to leave as Premier League leaders.

But the Reds will be ready for the challenge, and both teams will have matches in European competitions mid-week, so fitness will surely play a role as well. This could swing the title race in two very different directions.

Matchday 29 (16-17 March)

Arsenal v Chelsea - Saturday, 16 March

Arsenal will be confident about taking 3 points from this matchup, but as Liverpool's recent League Cup Final against Chelsea showed, the Blues are capable of pushing teams to the limit.

Everton v Liverpool - Sunday, 17 March

The Merseyside Derby is always a thriller and the Reds know they will be challegned for these valuable points. While struggling, Everton will be eager to deal a hammer blow to their rivals title chances.

Brighton v Manchester City - Sunday, 17 March

Similarly, City can anticipate a strong challenge when they travel to face Brighton. The Seagulls play an attractive and attacking style that can give any side fits when they are on. Roberto De Zerbi should have his side fired up for this affair.

Matchday 30 (30-31 March)

Liverpool v Brighton - Sunday, 31 March

The last day of March will be a blockbuster as the Reds host the always dangerous Brighton. Could De Zerbi, a candidate to replace Jurgen Klopp, deal a heavy blow to his potential suitors?

Manchester City v Arsenal - Sunday, 31 March

City hosts Arsenal in what is sure to be an action-packed final match of the month. Ideally, this match would end in a draw as both sides dropping points is a great recipe for the Reds.

With 12 points up for grabs, this year's title contenders can't afford lackluster performances in March. Don't miss a second as the Reds look to increase their lead and ride momentum from their recent League Cup Title.
