“Fantastic result for Manchester City.” Carragher reacts to Liverpool Arsenal draw

Jamie Carragher believes that Arsenal’s draw against Liverpool this evening was the ideal outcome for Manchester City. Both teams have outperformed the defending champions this season, and a victory for either side could have widened the gap between them and City.

With City not playing this weekend due to their commitments at the Club World Cup, they aim to secure a fourth consecutive Premier League title and need to stay in close contention with the top teams.

While City celebrates their status as world champions, they will be pleased with the weekend’s results as Liverpool, Arsenal, and Aston Villa all dropped two points each, keeping City within striking distance at the top of the table.

While on punditry duty for the Arsenal game, Carragher said via the BBC:

“At the moment, this is a fantastic result for Manchester City.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have just secured a huge result in our bid to become the champions of England and performances like this make us a team to fear.

Our players have now gone to one of the hardest places in England and returned without a defeat.

We need to enjoy it and use that as motivation to win our away games this season, which will almost certainly secure the title.

  1. If the boot was on the other foot, I’m pretty sure that we’d have been pleased with a draw between Liverpool and City.

    The reality is that our draw at a very tough away fixture was beneficial to US especially as Liverpool are strong at home.

  2. Both teams missed out on putting a bit of daylight between them and City. A draw suits us a bit better but a chance missed.

  3. Before the game, Carragher was doing his job as a Liverpool ambassador (no different to Neville for United) downplaying Liverpool’s chances because their performances haven’t matched the results. A draw for us away was never a negative but pundits are going to protect their clubs and City (hence why they suffer little negative press) are not historical rivals and are viewed as inevitable due to financing. Hence this skewed kind of punditry that frankly led to Wenger being unfairly abused originally.

    1. Just look at Chelsea who are also viewed as inevitable and the very timid and limited grief they get for spending a billion to be mid-table two years running.
