Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara has predicted that Arsenal will end up bottling the Premier League title in the later months of the season.
Arsenal currently sit top of the Premier League table, five points clear of Manchester City with 11 games remaining, but Jamie O’Hara is still predicting Arsenal to fall over in the final months of the season.
The Gunners have been written off time and time again this season, notably when Gabriel Jesus picked up a long-term knee injury in December. Arsenal were five points clear when the Brazilian got injured three months ago and the striker returns with the club in exactly the same position as they were, but this time with 11 games to go…
O’Hara clearly still thinks Pep Guardiola’s side will get the opportunity to overtake the current league leaders.
Arsenal still have some difficult fixtures to play with a trip to the Etihad, Anfield and St James’s Park still to come. However Mikel Arteta’s side have proven so far this season that they’re the real deal and they’re here to stay, although Jamie O’Hara disagrees.
O’Hara believes it will come quite late, but he’s named the precise dates when he believes Arsenal will end up botting the league. He told TalkSPORT:
“I think Man City will still win. We’ve had a tweet come in and this is exactly what I think, ‘City stay in touch with Arsenal until the last five games of the season, the Gunners will bottle it’ and I think the same thing.
You stay in touching distance with Arsenal, five points, three points, they’ve got to play each other. Man City need to beat Arsenal, that’s in six games’ time. After that you’ve got five games left.
If Man City beat Arsenal, they’re in touching distance with five games to go, who’s going to have the experience, who’s going to have the bottle? Man City have been there all before.There’s a lot of football still to play. They’ve still got to play Man City, and then after they play Man City, they’ve got to play Chelsea, who have pulled it together, then they’ve got to play Newcastle away.
Alright, three huge games, where in my opinion, Arsenal will bottle the title. That week there, 29th April to 6th May, that is when Arsenal are going to lose the league.”
