Man City and Arsenal on Last Gasp for Premier League Title

Share

London, UK – The suspense is palpable as Manchester City and Arsenal brace for a nail-biting finale to the Premier League season. Manchester City fans are jubilant, eager to see their team make history, while Arsenal supporters are fervently hoping for a slip-up from City.

The crucial question remains: who will take home the Premier League title?

According to the BBC, the title race is still wide open, with replica trophies prepared for both clubs. Former Manchester City and Arsenal defender Gael Clichy emphasized the importance of respecting their final matches. With the title still undecided, both teams must give their best performance.

Manchester City leads Arsenal by two points as they prepare to face West Ham on Sunday. For Arsenal, Mikel Arteta’s side must secure a victory against Everton to maintain any hope of being crowned champions.

Clichy, a member of Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ and a two-time Premier League champion with City, believes the Gunners face a tougher challenge in the season finale.

“The bar is so high that you can’t expect a team of Arsenal and City’s calibre to drop points,” Clichy said on the latest Planet Premier League podcast. “We are talking about the most competitive league in football. City are playing West Ham at home, who haven’t got much to play for. But there is a history that you can fail if you don’t perform and respect the game.”

Clichy added that Everton, despite their challenges, will want to prove a point against Arsenal. “Those points are not a given to any of the teams. But considering how well they have been playing, you cannot think they will be dropping points at this stage of the season.”

Meanwhile, former Premier League forward Clinton Morrison believes Arsenal might have to wait for Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola to leave before they can clinch the title. Arsenal have come close to the defending champions for the second consecutive season but are two points behind heading into the final game, relying on West Ham to do them a favor.

“They are not far away. They need Pep to go, and when he does, they will win the title,” Morrison said on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Friday Football Social. “Arsenal have been fantastic. In any other season, or if Manchester City weren’t in the league, they would win the Premier League because they have been fantastic under Mikel Arteta.”

Morrison pointed out that the pivotal moment was Arsenal’s loss to Aston Villa. “The Aston Villa game was the turning point, but credit to them this season. The players they brought in have all made an impact. Havertz has been outstanding, and there is a role for him in that team. But they still need a number nine, and I think they will get that person in the summer.”

Former Premier League midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker agreed, stating, “It is that simple – they need a number nine. You can see why they have been linked with Alexander Isak from Newcastle. When you think they lost to Bayern Munich in the Champions League and Arteta says, ‘We don’t have a striker who is going to score 25 goals’ – there is your answer. He knows it. The top teams need that in their side.”

As the final day of the Premier League season approaches, fans of both clubs are set for a thrilling conclusion to a fiercely contested title race.
