Manchester City are peaking at the right time, Brentford risk their season petering out and Spurs live in the land of uncertainty

After Manchester City’s 3-0 humbling of Bayern Munich, next up at the Etihad is the Premier League’s second-bottom team, Leicester. This will be the champions’ last league game before a seismic clash with Arsenal on 26 April. Pep Guardiola’s men are in ripe form just as the treble roves into sight, with next Wednesday’s return at Bayern in the Champions League coming three days before a Wembley trip to take on Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-finals. Erling Haaland is adding assists to his goal-gluttony, Bernardo Silva’s dancing feet are back, and RĂºben Dias is a colossus in defence once more, with Guardiola’s four-man rearguard that becomes a three in possession another key to this upsurge. Do not be surprised, then, if Leicester are swept aside particularly because, after Arsenal dropped two points at Liverpool, a three-peat City title win is now back in their hands. Jamie Jackson
