“I Can’t See…” – Ian Wright Makes Frank Admission About Premier League Title Race

“I Can’t See…” – Ian Wright Makes Frank Admission About Premier League Title Race

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has admitted that his former club are unlikely to hunt down Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

The Cityzens went two points clear after both the Gunners and Liverpool lost home games at the weekend and, speaking on Sunday about the title race, Wright said:

“Man City wouldn’t have thought Liverpool and Arsenal would have lost today. City know how to navigate this. They can afford to lose a game now, but I can’t see them losing one.”

City have proven to be very strong frontrunners in the past, reeling off win after win, and that has certainly coloured the views of pundits like Wright on how things currently stand.

Guardiola claims his team thrives under pressure

Speaking after City thrashed Luton Town 5-1 on Saturday, manager Pep Guardiola said he believes his players won’t take their foot off the gas in the last six games:

“They like to play the pressure. They like it when you are dead or alive. That doesn’t mean we are going to do it but I am pretty sure we will be there until the end because I know them, I see their faces before in the meetings before games and how they prepare. That means we’ll be Premier League champions? No, no. I am not saying that. But we will compete, that is for sure.”

Of course, those comments came before the Arsenal and Liverpool defeats so Guardiola’s confidence that his team can go all the way will be boosted even further.

City could be 3rd the next time they play in the league

As the reigning champions take on Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final this weekend, it means they don’t play their next league fixture until Thursday 25th April versus Brighton.

However, Arsenal and Liverpool will be in action, and if the two teams do get back to winning ways, there is a possibility that Guardiola’s men will be a point behind both clubs by this time next week.
