The difference between Arsenal and Man City in title race is just 0.01%

Arsenal and Manchester City have never been closer to each other at the top of the league table as both clubs prepare to meet this midweek.

Mikel Arteta’s side is battling to take the PL crown from City and has been superb for much of the campaign.

However, the Gunners have hit a rough patch in their last two matches, with Everton beating them and Brentford earning a 1-1 draw against them in the next game.

These results have made the match against City a must-win, or at least a game Arsenal must not lose if they want to remain at the top of the league table.

City is getting closer to them and Opta released new stats which showed that Arsenal’s chance of winning the title is now 48.90%.

Manchester City is close by with a 48.89% chance of winning the title ahead of Mikel Arteta’s side.

This means there is just a 0.01% difference between both clubs and Arsenal knows they cannot afford to lose that advantage by suffering a defeat against City.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have been in a thrilling title race and this is the definition of the tightest of margins. The game against City would be tough, but we must play our game with confidence and assurance that we can earn all the points.

  1. On a point of mathematical pedantry, IF Wednesdays game is a draw with no key injuries on either side, City will still have gained more than we have.

    They would have then played a key away game while we would have used up the home game we have in hand. That would be enough to overturn that supposed 0.01% difference in our current favour. Assuming it exists at all, which I DO NOT.

  2. Inspite of us being on top, Manchester city are still massive favourites, forget about those permutations which gives us a slight advantage over them, this team becomes very dangerous in the second round, while we falter in the second round.

  3. From the comments about this game over the last few day, it seems that if we lose then it’s all over bar congratulating city and playing for a CL place.

    So what if Haaland does play?
    Have we forgotten how our defence nullified another top striker just a few days ago by the name of Harry Kane?

    We are at home, unbeaten at The Emirates and a crowd who will raise the stakes even higher.

  4. Am alright with the Citizens remaining strong favorite.

    A win later would be a massive three points for us, a draw would be a good point also as it would also by important time to allow our new additions to blend in nicely before the return leg with Citizens.

    Hope’s Haaland fit enough and starts , the Citizens are not so much a potent force so much as when he is absent, but Pep Guardiola will use him in his mind game no doubt about that.
