The Premier League title race is set for a thrilling end to the season with a number of crucial games rescheduled for live TV coverage. Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City have all been affected by the changes.

The Gunners' clash with Manchester United, originally scheduled for Saturday, May 11, has been moved to Sunday, May 12 after being picked for Sky Sports coverage, giving Mikel Arteta's side an extra day's rest following their match against Bournemouth. Liverpool will then face Aston Villa on Monday, May 13, before Manchester City lock horns with Tottenham on Tuesday, May 14.

The final round of Premier League games is scheduled for Sunday, May 19, with all matches kicking off at 4pm. These penultimate fixtures could prove decisive in the title race, with Arsenal currently top of the table on 71 points, but only ahead of Liverpool on goal difference.

The Premier League title race could go down to the wire, with Arsenal's final day clash against Everton at the Emirates Stadium set to be a crucial fixture. The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports, as will Liverpool's encounter with Wolves at Anfield, which will mark Jurgen Klopp's last league game in charge of the Reds.

Manchester City, meanwhile, will take on against West Ham at the Etihad. Arsenal are eager to end their two-decade wait for a Premier League title, having narrowly missed out last season when they finished second to Manchester City.

The Gunners will be keen to maintain their lead over their rivals and secure the trophy. City, under Pep Guardiola, are aiming for their fourth consecutive Premier League win.

However, they currently trail Arsenal and Liverpool by one point and have the worst goal difference among the top three teams. This puts them at a disadvantage if the teams finish level on points, unless there is a change in fortunes before the season ends.

Liverpool, on the other hand, are looking to clinch their second Premier League title as a fitting farewell gift for Klopp. Despite only losing two games this season, the Reds have been held to a draw eight times, including their recent match against Manchester United.
