Chelsea is still on top of the English Premier League, but the race to determine who will be the biggest challenger to the throne will take a major step toward being decided today when Manchester City takes on Arsenal in the match of the day.
City is in second place, but Arsenal could close the gap with the win at City of Manchester Stadium. Both teams enjoyed strong mid-week performances in European competition, but Manchester City has been especially tough at home this season.
England isn't the only country where would-be title contenders will square off. Villarreal and Atletico Madrid will face off in a match-up of top Spanish clubs. In Germany, fast-starting Mainz 05 faces Bayer Leverkusen. The MLS regular season will conclude with the Los Angeles Galaxy looking to lock up the Supporters Shield with a win or tie against FC Dallas.
