The Premier League has formed into a four-horse title race in recent weeks, but where do the top-six teams rank in games against each other?
Manchester City have not fared well against their rivals this season, taking just three points from their seven matches so far against Leicester, Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester United and West Ham.
They have lost their two home games against top-six sides so far - and host Spurs live on Super Sunday. However, City have already played all five away games against other current top-six sides.

Arsenal have only played five matches against their top-six rivals but have taken 10 points, beating City, Leicester and United, drawing with Spurs and losing to West Ham.

The Gunners' have perhaps the hardest five remaining fixtures, hosting Leicester before travelling to Manchester United, Tottenham, West Ham and Manchester City, while City's three remaining games against the current top six are all at home, versus Tottenham, United and Arsenal.
Leicester City, the 5,000/1 shot to win the title back in August, travel to Arsenal and United and host West Ham in their remaining top-six clashes.
