City through, Arsenal out, and the biggest Tyne-Wear derby for decades

City through, Arsenal out, and the biggest Tyne-Wear derby for decades

But Southampton boss Ronald Koeman ruled out Arsenal and Manchester City's chances.

"It will be a new situation for them (Leicester) now - 11 points from Arsenal, 12 points from City".

"It's now the fight between two teams - Leicester and Tottenham". On all fronts, we have to put in some performances in these last few games to get as many points as we can and secure that top-four position.

"Arsenal and City are out of the title, they can't win it now".

"I was in Athens for the Greece v Northern Ireland game and I got the impression that the players didn't want him there and that they weren't playing for him - I could see that on the pitch". They don't look like teams that are going to go on and win the title.

Mark Young casts his eye over the pick of the fixtures from what promises to be another fascinating weekend of Premier League action.

"I like the way Leicester play".

City have failed to score in their last two games, with goals being a struggle for United for a big chunk of the season.

If I had to predict the game, I'd say it'll be a win for City. We don't deserve to win it this year - I don't think we've played well enough. "[Claudio] Ranieri is a good man, he knows football very well".

Both sides will be content with their 2015/16 campaign, but there is likely to be a lack of intensity from both in the league between now and the end of the season.

On Saturday, Leicester won 1-0 at Crystal Palace and now leads second-place Tottenham by eight points with seven matches to go, with Riyad Mahrez grabbing the lone goal.
