Arteta Predicts Where Premier League Title Will Be Decided

Mikel Arteta has said the Premier League title race between Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City will be decided on the final day of the season.

Just three points separate the top three sides in what could be the closest and most unpredictable title race in the competition’s history.

Everything could change this weekend with Arsenal and City facing potential banana skins at Brighton and Crystal Palace on Saturday.

On their part, leaders Liverpool travel to arch-rivals Manchester United on Sunday.

While each team will be taking things one game at a time, Arteta is in no doubt that the destination of the title won’t be decided until the very last day of the season on 19 May.

“This is the level and it’s been the level in this league for the past six or seven years,” the Arsenal manager said in his pre-match press conference on Friday, via Mirror.

“The margins are so small, let’s see those numbers at the end of the last game and hopefully if those are maintained, I think we have a good chance.

“We’re still not at the top and we have to transform that into winning and winning and winning, and that’s the only way to have the chance in the last game of the season to do it.”

Liverpool are currently the favourites, but champions City can never be discounted given their ability to go on long, end of season winning runs, including the 12-game win streak that saw them pip Arsenal to the post last season.

But Arteta does not believe the same will happen this time round, predicting that all three title rivals will drop points in the next eight games.

“I don’t know what is going to happen but it is very unlikely that everybody wins every game,” he added.

“You look back a what happened in previous seasons and it is very, very unlikely – but you don’t know.

“Let’s do everything we possibly can. Don’t leave anything left and play with the same enthusiasm and hunger and quality, and let’s see where it takes us.”
