The run-in: Fixture list favours Arsenal in title race; Man City could struggle late on

General view of the Premier League trophy before the match

As long as they can stay in the mix heading into March, Arsenal have a great chance to win the Premier League title for the first time since 2004.

The Premier League fixture list is out and, while fans will be marking down when their teams play the big boys, neutrals will ponder which title contenders have a favourable run-in.

We have compiled every fixture that last year's top six will play from March until the end of the season and, at this early stage, Arsenal seem to have the advantage.

Chelsea could have a tough time defending their title, meanwhile, and Manchester City also face a difficult few months to close the campaign...

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger

Arsenal enjoy a favourable run-in, with three of their last five away games coming against the promoted sides. Their only clash against a fellow top-six club in the closing months of the season sees Arsene Wenger's men visit Old Trafford on April 28.

Fixtures from March onwards: Brighton (a), Watford (h), Leicester (a), Stoke (h), Southampton (h), Newcastle (a), West Ham (h), Man Utd (a), Burnley (h), Huddersfield (a).

If Chelsea are to defend their title, they are going to have to do it the hard way in the closing months of the season. In March, they travel to Man City and host Tottenham, while they end the season with Liverpool at home and a trip to St James' Park, where they have not won since 2011.

Fixtures from March onwards: Man City (a), Crystal Palace (h), Burnley (a), Tottenham (h), West Ham (h), Southampton (a), Huddersfield (h), Swansea (a), Liverpool (h), Newcastle (a).

Liverpool have away derbies against Man Utd and Everton in the closing months of the season, as well as a trip to Chelsea. Their fixtures at Anfield are much more favourable, though, as they welcome both Newcastle and Brighton.

Fixtures from March onwards: Newcastle (h), Man Utd (a), Watford (h), Crystal Palace (a), Everton (a), Bournemouth (h), West Brom (a), Stoke (h), Chelsea (a), Brighton (h).

Arguably the toughest run-in of any pre-season contender, Man City's home derby clash against Man Utd is sandwiched between away games at Everton and Tottenham. Chelsea will also visit the Etihad Stadium at the beginning of March.

Fixtures from March onwards: Chelsea (h), Stoke (a), Brighton (h), Everton (a), Man Utd (h), Tottenham (a), Swansea (h), West Ham (a), Huddersfield (h), Southampton (a).

Jose Mourinho's Man Utd host Liverpool and Arsenal towards the end of the campaign, while they also travel to Man City. May looks favourable, though, with Brighton away followed by Watford at home on the final day.

Fixtures from March onwards: Crystal Palace (a), Liverpool (h), West Ham (a), Swansea (h), Man City (a), West Brom (h), Bournemouth (a), Arsenal (h), Brighton (a), Watford (h).

Although Tottenham visit Chelsea and welcome Man City to Wembley, Mauricio Pochettino's men also play all three promoted sides in the last three months of the season. If they are still in the hunt for the title, they will have as good a chance as any side.

Fixtures from March onwards: Huddersfield (h), Bournemouth (a), Newcastle (h), Chelsea (a), Stoke (a), Man City (h), Brighton (a), Watford (h), West Brom (a), Leicester (h).
