It was an action packed weekend of Premier League action that saw two teams rise back to the top of the Premier League table.

Arsenal secured a 2-0 win over Wolves on Saturday to get the weeknd started for the big hitters. Brentford put 5 goals past Luton Town in their win as well on Saturday.

Come Sunday, Liverpool responded in kind with a 3-1 win of their own away to Fulham as Trent Alexander-Arnold's superb free kick was the highlight of the weekend. With their wins, both Liverpool and Arsenal leapfrog Manchester City to go level on points at the top of the table.

City was in FA Cup Semifinal action so they now have a game in-hand on both their title rivals.

The trio of Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal have separated themselves from the rest of the league as this is a three-horse race to the finish of the 2023-24 Premier League campaign.

The Gunners do hold a goal difference advantage which could be handy if things come down to it. As of this writing, Arsenal has a +51 goal difference, Liverpool sits at +43 and City are at +44. The Reds hold the short end of the stick if things fell to this area so let's hope it does not come to that.

Aston Villa is firmly entrenched in 4th on 66 points while Tottenham are sitting fifth with 60. However, looking ahead, Spurs could play a vital role in how the table shakes out.

Tottenham still plays both Arsenal and City so the Liverpool fans will be rooting for them hard in those games.

Even before that, all three title hopefuls have feisty matches this week that they must overcome. Arsenal plays an ever improving Chelsea side on Tuesday in what should prove to be a heated London clash.

The Reds have the Merseyside derby with Everton on Wednesday which never fails to live up to its intensive billing.

Finally, Manchester City plays Brighton on Thursday and we all know how dangerous the Seagulls can be when they are clicking on all cylinders.

It's going to be a frantic and enthralling finish to the Premier League season and there is no clear frontrunner.

If we have learned anything from this season it's to expect the unexpected and with so many marquee matchups still waiting, that theme should still ring true in a month.

For now at least, Liverpool and Arsenal sit at the summit but there is still so much work to be done.
