Jamie Carragher predicts the title race after the weekend results

Jamie Carragher still considers Manchester City the team to beat in the Premier League title race, despite the champions currently occupying the third position in the league standings.

City, champions for the last three consecutive seasons, has typically faced limited competition for their crown. However, in this campaign, Arsenal and Liverpool are posing a strong challenge to Pep Guardiola’s side.

In the recent draw against Liverpool, City suffered a setback in their pursuit of a fourth consecutive league title. This result elevated Arsenal to the top of the standings, just ahead of Liverpool on goal difference, while City dropped to third.

Despite this shift, Carragher believes that City is not far from the top and has the potential to clinch the championship. The Citizens still have a chance to reclaim the lead, especially with an upcoming home fixture against Arsenal before the end of the season.

He said, as quoted by Star Sports:

 “If you’re Arsenal and you were watching today.

“You’re probably thinking that the best possible result for you is a draw.

“Then if you’re Liverpool and you’re watching Arsenal play Man City in a few weeks time, you’re thinking the same thing so I think from their points of view, they’re still trying to chase down City.

“They’re still the team to beat. They have to find the points to beat them but City’s next four or five games are tough – even though Arsenal are on top, I think Liverpool would still rather see them win over City because I think City’s last five or six games of the season will be ones they get maximum points in.

“If they don’t drop points in the next few weeks, I think they’ll be really tough to stop.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

City have dominated the Premier League for much of the last seven seasons, and we must not exclude them from the title race just yet.

  1. The predictors will likely change on a weekly basis between now and the middle of May, Arsenal on top of the pile with 64 points, whoever catches us shall surely win.

    With the inconsistency in referring and the time wasting monster raising it’s head once again 88 points is enough for Arsenal to lift that Big jug.

    But Arsenal are a different animal in this campaign, something tells me we are enjoying the title race this time around ,we have learned how to control games and we have mirrored the champions on being ruthless.

    But with the world class player now back on the bench and if those legs manage to hold, our final rattle could prove hard to withstand.

    1. We are also not the favourite and under pressure to win like last season which was clearly too much for a young team n manager with no experience of a title fight.

      Hell people are/have been rather disrespectfully dismissing our chances this season which works out fine with us as the underdog against two monster teams.

  2. I still feel we can beat City at their ground. They were not so great against Liverpool and Liverpool were denied a clear penalty when Doku challenged Mac Allister. Liverpool came at them time and again if Arsenal stick to their plan and given our recent form, we can beat city. The key though will be our consistency in winning matches till the end of the season.
