Believe Any Other Claim, But Not That The Gunners Aren’t The Team To Beat For The PL Title
Imagine there is someone who still believes Arsenal will not win the Premier League title. That person has to be Gary Neville’s friend. After watching United go nine games unbeaten last weekend after beating Manchester City, the Manchester legend believes United will finish ahead of Arsenal.
“No. But I said Leicester wouldn’t win the league,” Neville said when asked on Sky Sports if he thought Arsenal would win the title. “They won’t win the league. Manchester City will win the league, and I think Man Utd will finish second, and I know that will annoy Arsenal fans!”
Many Arsenal fans were not comfortable with Neville’s claims, and luckily for them, Arsenal legend Bacary Sagna has blasted Neville’s claims, revealing why the Premier League champion will be coming from North London this time around. “That’s his [Neville’s] opinion. He has his own point of view, but there is a difference between his point of view and what I believe will become reality. This season, Arsenal have been the best and most consistent team. Manchester United and Manchester City have two important games coming up,” said Sagna on FindMyCasino, in response to Neville’s claims.
“I don’t see United finishing in front of Arsenal. They have improved, but Arsenal are better and have been the best team all season—Pep Guardiola will agree with that! He’s been saying they are difficult to catch, and they will be. This weekend Arsenal have an important game and again they will have to show that they’re strong, but I’m not worried about that.”
Bottom line, as a Gunner, you must be aware that much will be said, and some may even argue that Liverpool is still in the title race. However, at the end of the day, statistics are all that matter. Arsenal leads in every statistic that can propel a team to victory in the league. After 18 games, Arsenal have 47 points, which is 8 points more than Manchester City (before their Spurs match) and 9 points more than Manchester United (before their midweek Crystal Palace match). While Manchester City has a goal machine in Erling Haaland, who has already scored 21 goals, they have only scored 4 goals more than Arsenal this season with 46 goals. Imagine if Haaland was at Arsenal.
Anyway, comparing Manchester United’s inferior goals to Arsenal is a joke. Arsenal’s defence has also demonstrated its tenacity, with Manchester City conceding four more goals and Manchester United conceding seven more than Arsenal. This Arsenal team is simply superior to the two Manchester sides tipped to trouble them, to the point where if Arteta’s boys can be better or match the performances of these two in the remaining league games, there is no way Guardiola and Ten Hag will steal the 2022-23 Premier League title under Arteta’s nose.
