Arsenal are on the course of winning their first Premier League title since 2004. Mikel Arete’s side has 50 points from 20 games. The Gunners are 5 points above second-place Manchester City and 6 points above third-place Manchester United with a game in hand.
Pep Guardiola’s side poses the biggest threat to Arsenal’s quest of winning the Premier League after close to 19 years. Manchester City, under Pep Guardiola, has won four Premier League titles in five years and has amassed at least 85 points in the last five seasons.
Under Erik Ten Hag, Manchester United is a real force to reckon with in the Premier League. The Red Devils are third in the Premier League with 43 points but have played two games more than current leaders Arsenal.
The Former Tottenham Manager Harry Redknapp has hailed Arsenal and expressed his enjoyment in watching Artete’s team recently but feels Manchester City can still pip Arsenal to the Premier League title.
What did Harry Redknapp say?
He said on the Mennie Talks podcast: “Arsenal are playing fantastic football. The football they’re playing and the team just look so well balanced.
“Two great wingers in [Bukayo] Saka and [Gabriel] Martinelli, they’re strong in midfield – [Martin] Odegaard looks a real player; I love the way he plays; he’s just class. And they look solid at the back. Ramsdale is good.
“I don’t know though, I’ve still got a feeling Man City are going to win it, I think they’re going to come with a rally and pip Arsenal. But it will be tight.
“Arsenal are going to take some catching, but the one team you don’t want chasing you down is Man City!
“If it was anyone else chasing them, I’d say, “yeah, fine,” but Man City are so dangerous. Just look at their bench.
“[Ruben] Dias and [Phil] Foden haven’t been getting a game, and they would walk into any other team in the Premier League.
“The changes Pep Guardiola can make all over the pitch is just ridiculous. Whereas I think if Arsenal get a couple of injuries it will be a big problem for them.”
Meanwhile, former Premier star Jay-Jay Okocha has revealed he expects Arsenal to be Premier League Champions.
The Nigerian football legend said on wettfreunde: “Manchester City is surprisingly losing a lot of games this season for [their] standards.
“Arsenal are consistently good, I assume the defeat at Everton was just a slip-up recently.
“I trust Arsenal to become champions, but for that [they have] to do well in both duels against Man City.”
The Premier League title will likely be decided by the two fixtures between Manchester City and Arsenal.
