Arsenal Fans Brace For A Tense End To Premier League Title Race


Arsenal fans’ dream of a first title since 2003-04 is bound to have its tense moments owing to the long wait. But they have history on their side even as the Premier League race moves towards a dramatic finale, entering the final leg of the campaign.

With two months to go for the end of the present campaign, Arsenal scored another comfortable victory over Crystal Palace taking them eight points clear of the pack. The 4-1-win leaves them with ten more games to go as they hope to end the almost two-decade wait for the league title.

Manchester City remains the closest threat and their experience of dealing with the pressures of a Premier League run-in gives them an edge over Arsenal this season. Experience and nerves could be the key as the season enters the final stretch.

Arsenal Fans Can Take Comfort In The Prolific Scoring Rate Of The Gunners

Arsenal has been prolific in their scoring and has scored 14 goals in the league in the last four games. They are now on 69 points and have set up a comfortable 8 points lead over City who are on 61. Manchester United is at a distant 50 points followed by Tottenham Hotspurs at 49. At this moment it appears to have come down to a two-horse race.

Arsenal has won 22 of their 28 games. The two top teams in the league meet on 26 April at the Etihad Stadium in what is likely to be the pivotal match of this campaign.

Arsenal has a simple target from their last ten games. All they need is 26 points to emerge at the top, even if City win all their eleven remaining matches. Arsenal plays their final game against the Wolves on May 28.

Guardiola’s team also has a two-match Champions League quarter-final before them against Bayern Munich. There is also the FA Cup semifinal at Wembley against Sheffield United.
