Title Race Still Unpredictable Following City VS Arsenal

It’s tempting to discuss the draw between Arsenal and Manchester City like it had massive implications on the title race.

The truth is, it’s as you were and regardless of the result, Sunday’s game was never going to decide anything.

The 0 – 0 draw means Liverpool are top of the table with 67 points having defeated Brighton earlier in the day. Arsenal and Manchester City occupy 2nd and 3rd position with 65 points and 64 points respectively.

No matter whether Liverpool, Arsenal and City won, lost or drew over the weekend, the three teams would have remained within one game of each other. The title race is still a long way from its conclusion.

The clash between Arsenal and City was somewhat anticlimactic, but Arsenal will be delighted with it. They were humbled 4-1 in the same fixture last season when frankly, City stamped their authority on them. This time, Arsenal were outstanding defensively and didn’t allow City to get into their flow.

Including the Community Shield, Arsenal are unbeaten in three games against Manchester City this season, with one win. They are learning how to play against Guardiola’s team.

They are also learning how to play big games against elite teams in general, as 4 points from each Liverpool and City this season demonstrates.

Meanwhile, Liverpool keep winning improbably, despite their injury issues and the youth of players filling key roles. At some point when the games start to run out, we have to stop saying it’s unsustainable. It may be sustainable until the end of May, and that’s all they need.

All three teams have midweek fixtures to navigate, and City will have the biggest challenge against Aston Villa on Wednesday. Arsenal play Luton at home on Wednesday while Liverpool face Sheffield United at home on Wednesday.
