Liverpool go into Week 32 on top of the form table after six wins in a row.
The Reds take on Sunderland before their clash with Tottenham, hoping to put pressure on Manchester City, the only team they currently cannot stop from winning the league.
Meanwhile, Arsenal take on Swansea in midweek and then face City in two home fixtures, hoping to bounce back from their 6-0 thumping at Chelsea.
With key fixtures at both ends of the table, let's see who's in form—and who needs a win—in Week 32.

Teams In Form
The Reds go into their week on the back of a 6-3 victory over Cardiff. Luis Suarez's hat-trick helped Brendan Rodgers' side to their sixth win in a row.
The win in Wales also kept the club's pace with table-toppers Chelsea. If Liverpool win their game in hand they would trail the Blues by just a point ahead of the two sides' meeting on April 27.
Matches against Sunderland and Tottenham, both at Anfield, will offer the perfect opportunity to keep their title hopes alive.
Jose Mourinho's outfit face a tricky trip to Crystal Palace, while fellow rivals Manchester City are set for two tough away dates, so this a definitely a period in which the Reds must profit.
The Potters picked up their first away win since August with their 4-1 demolition of Aston Villa. However, Mark Hughes' men have been far more resilient at home, lifting the side to sixth in the form table.
Speaking at a press conference, the manager praised Peter Crouch for his recent contributions and backed him for a place at the World Cup, per The Guardian's Jonny Weeks:
Peter is an international-class player. He's proven that and he's got a great record. He gives you a focal point and his link-up play is excellent. I thought he was outstanding again today.
Maybe people in charge now are looking in different areas and are looking for a similar type of player, a player who's as effective as Peter Crouch, but maybe they think his time has come and gone. If he was asked to go I'm sure he wouldn't refuse the offer.
Three wins and two draws in their last six matches at the Britannia have steered the club back into mid-table.
Hughes' outfit go into their match with Hull on the back of a 3-1 home win over West Ham, too, so they will be full of confidence.
Sides In Need Of A Result
If the Premier League table was dictated by form, Swansea would be in the relegation zone.
Gary Monk's men suffered a 3-2 defeat at Everton last time out, slipping to 15th on the ladder.
The Welshmen harbour just a four-point lead over the drop zone, although they have played a game less than bottom-placed Fulham and 19th-placed Cardiff.
But with a trip to the Emirates Stadium next up for Swansea, the Swans need to turn their form around if they are to continue playing Premier League football next season.
The Gunners' failure to give Arsene Wenger happier memories of his 1,000th game have left the side 14th on the form guide.
Arsenal have picked up good results with home comforts in their last six matches, notching four wins and two draws. However, the 6-0 thrashing by Chelsea compounded three defeats in the club's last six trips outside of the Emirates.
Per Opta Sports' tweet, Wenger's men have performed to an extremely low standard on their travels this term:
The Gunners are back on home soil against the Swans next time out and must graft their way back into the title race.
With Manchester City set to visit Arsenal on Saturday, the fixture will likely become a six-pointer if Wenger's men pick up all three points in midweek.
Defeat to Swansea would leave the Gunners seven points adrift of Chelsea having played the same number of fixtures—and realistically, out of the title race.
