Four teams head into Week 26 of the Premier League campaign facing a crossroads as leaders Leicester City look to defend their perch at Arsenal on Sunday, while Manchester City host second-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

The Foxes head to the Emirates Stadium five points clear of Spurs and the third-placed Gunners, and Claudio Ranieri's side could end this weekend even further ahead of the pack if all goes to plan.

Manchester United will also look to extend their three-match unbeaten run at Sunderland in Saturday's early kick-off, and Newcastle United look to hand Chelsea their first defeat under interim manager Guus Hiddink at Stamford Bridge.

Read on as we provide a detailed breakdown of the Week 26 fixture schedule, complete with score predictions, live stream information and discussion of this weekend's title-influencing matchups.

Leicester Hoping Cool Heads Prevail

It's well-founded that not many were expecting Leicester to rise to Premier League crown contention this season, and the campaign has been littered with premonitions of their eventual downfall.

However, ex-Arsenal defender Martin Keown wrote in his Daily Mail column this week that if the Foxes manage to "blow away" Arsene Wenger's men, the title really could be theirs for the taking:

The pressure is now on the manager because he's got to keep this group calm. The trouble is that if they do get it wrong, they'll have to wait a long time to put it right — February 27 at home to Norwich. 

But if they beat Arsenal then the title is almost theirs to lose. They would be huge favourites but that would bring about pressure of its own. There are still enough games left for them to trip up.

It's been almost five months since Leicester suffered a 5-2 defeat at home to Arsenal in September—their only home loss this season—and the team with the best away record in the Premier League now has its chance at revenge.

Bleacher Report's Dean Jones has broken down some of the fixture's key elements if Leicester are to do the unthinkable and advance their quest for top spot in north London:

The Emirates will be an unaccommodating venue, but this is an Arsenal team that lost at home to West Ham United on the opening day of the season and more recently dropped three points against Chelsea in front of their own fans.

With Jamie Vardy back in form after netting three in his last three, the Gunners will be hard-pressed to hold the Leicester attack back, but their comfort in these kinds of high-stakes matchups may prove to be a key factor of its own.

Prediction: Arsenal 2-2 Leicester City


Manchester City in Race to Remain Relevant

Manuel Pellegrini's Manchester City will assuredly be keeping on top of the action unfolding at the Emirates, but the Citizens have enough to worry about as they prepare for the visit of Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham.

Fortunately for the hosts, Manchester City have been given two major boosts leading into such a crucial encounter after ESPN FC reported both captain Vincent Kompany and David Silva could make their returns to fitness:

City sit fourth in the table and are just a point off Spurs and Arsenal, not to mention boasting the best goal difference in the competition, having scored as many goals as leaders Leicester (47) while conceding one fewer (26).

That being said, former Southampton chief Pochettino has his Spurs side enjoying a six-match winning run, during which they've netted 17 goals, an average of almost three per game. Sky Sports News HQ provided footage of the Argentinian speaking of his belief in mounting a title challenge of their own:

After the home visit of Tottenham comes the away trip to Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup exactly a week later, after which Pellegrini's men resume their Champions League campaign by travelling to Dynamo Kiev.

If you want to be the best, you have to be able to ride through such muddy waters and emerge intact at the end; Sunday's fixture will mark the beginning of City's most testing period of the 2015-16 campaign yet.

Prediction: Manchester City 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur
