Arsenal as much a threat as Liverpool reckons Rodri

Manchester City midfielder Rodri insists Arsenal is not to be taken for granted in the race for the Premier League title this season.

The Spaniard has enjoyed a trophy-laden spell at City since he moved to the club, and they remain one of the favourites to win this title.

The midfielder knows Liverpool is their main competitor, just like most people think.

However, he is not ignoring the threat from Arsenal and Tottenham.

The Gunners have bolstered their squad with some very fine players. Spurs have also done the same.

Mikel Arteta’s side has signed two proven Premier League winners from City in this window, and that makes them even stronger.

Rodri insists they are to be considered. He said, as quoted by Liverpool Echo: “Not just Liverpool, but Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, [Manchester] United.

We just have to focus on ourselves as always, focus on each game and we will see if we can make it three Premier League titles in a row. They’re a top team and have great players in every position, like us.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

After nearly breaking into the top four next season, every club will take us seriously now.

The likes of City know it is only a matter of time before we compete for the league title again.

Liverpool went through a similarly tough rebuilding process before becoming one of the best clubs in the world now.

We will get to that level if we keep adding top players to our group every season.

  1. I believe Gabriel Jesus will score over 20goals in his first season for arsenal. That guy is a master of positioning.

    He’s definitely going to score some cheap goals, due to his alertness around the opposition’s box.

    3rd place and a trophy is possible.

    Joint top scorers between Jesus and
    Nketia is possible.

    Joint king of assist between odeg and viera is possible.

    Joint boss of the season between pep, Mikel and klop possible.

    This is the season for Mikel arteta to show himself approved.

  2. I’m confident in the rebuild… can’t wait for the league to start…. let’s destroy the palace like Sevilla game and come top of the table from the start. It will give the players more confidence to push on from there.

  3. I believe we have built a formidable side to compete, anyone who takes us for granted would do so at their own peril. If the attitude is right we will surprise many… We may even win the Europa League

  4. I’m super excited for this season, It’s going to be a good one, not just for arsenal but I think for all football fans!

  5. A WELCOME positive article ! How cathartic to read positivity on here.

    To be fair to Martin, HE is usually more optimistic than certain other writers, esp one called DAN!

    1. Haha,seeing that piece and the guess who’s back name in it made me clicked away instantly cos it was too early for such bad vibe on a sunday morning especially after an encouraging victory a day prior,were’nt good for my mental i must admit.

  6. Rodri was part of the game back to january when we outplayed them knowing obviously how tough playing this team is….We still need to some additions to (a midfielder and an attacking player) and some years of expérience to guys like Saka and Martenelli….Two years and We’r ready to go for the title
