There are many people who think that Manchester City have already won the Premier League title after going on an incredible winning run to send them 8 points clear of their nearest rivals Man United. The race for the other Top Four spots in now getting closer with just 4 points separating Man United, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, Arsenal and Burnley, but after Arsenal’s tight game at the Etihad and the demolition of Tottenham the Gunners look well placed to go on another winning run to try and close the gap with Pep Guardiola’s side.
Man City are a ridiculous 1/10 on to stay top all season, but even if you have a resource to bet on football at those odds, it is a hell of a gamble right now. We are only 12 games into the season and we have all seen high-flying clubs drop points rapidly in the past after growing big leads, and if Arsenal carry on winning then we can only sit and watch what happens with City. One person that believes we can catch them is our very own Granit Xhaka, who said: “I think in football everything is possible,”
“Manchester City, at the moment, are on a very good run, they’re doing very well and others have dropped points – which they haven’t done – but it’s conceivable that they could drop points as well.”
“They might not continue as they have been,”
“But our aim is just to focus on ourselves. We know we need to work and we’re convinced that we can compete at the top.
“Everything’s possible, I’m a person who thinks realistically but has dreams and fantasies as well. In football, everything is always possible.”
He is right of course, the season is far from over. Weren’t Chelsea 8 points behind Man City early last season? They just went on a winning run of their own and we all know what happened there….
Get on Arsenal for the title at about 66/1 while you can!
