Why Arsenal Have Advantage Over Man City In Title Race  —Vieira

Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira believes the Gunners have the advantage in the title race with Manchester City.

The Gunners, who are chasing a first league title since 2004, sit one point behind defending champions City ahead of Sunday’s games.

Arsenal play host to Brighton on Sunday afternoon, shortly after City visit Everton.

City’s clash at Goodison Park comes in-between Champions League semi-final legs against Real Madrid and Vieira believes the Sky Blues’ European commitments could still lead to a twist in the title race.

If City get past Real Madrid – the first leg at the Bernabeu finished 1-1 – they will play Inter Milan or AC Milan in the final.

“I think Arsenal still have to be really optimistic because they’re in the title race with a couple of games left,” Vieira told Sky Sports.

“You have to believe – or make the players believe – that Man City will drop points. You see Man City are in the Champions League and their mind could still be on that Real Madrid game and the final.

“They will obviously want to win that Champions League and of course that will take up a lot of energy.

“The message to the Arsenal players has to be: Manchester City will drop points.

“Arsenal can’t afford to feel sorry for themselves, they need to win their remaining games and hope Man City drop points.

“I believe that Arsenal have that in their minds and that’s why it’s about them winning from now until the end of the season and then crossing their fingers and hoping Man City drop points.

“Arsenal went through a difficult period and Man City are back top. But there’s still a few games left for things to change.”
