Manchester United and their cross-town rival Manchester City are locked on top of the Premier League table with 45 points. The good news for the Red Devils and their fans is that they have played just 21 matches to City's 23. United are the lone Premier League club still without a loss in league play this season.
Arsenal lurks just two points back of the two Manchester Clubs through 22 games. The Gunners have not lost a league match since a 1-0 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford in mid-December. Since that setback they have won three and tied two to stay very much in the hunt for a league title. Ironically, for Arsenal, the club has been more proficient this season when playing away from Emirates. They are 6-1-3 at home as compared with a 7-3-2 mark on the road.
As the second half of the season settles in a number of clubs are in desperate need of points to climb out of relegation danger. Among those are Wigan (currently in third last with 22 points) as well as both Fulham and Birmingham City (both just one point clear of the clubs in the relegation zone with 23 points).
