Manchester City defender Manuel Akanji has admitted it will be difficult to catch Arsenal with the Gunners currently sitting eight points ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side.
The Manchester City centre back thinks his side will have to win all of their remaining Premier League in order to beat Arsenal to the Premier League title this season.
Arsenal might be eight points clear right now with nine games to go, however they still have to travel to Anfield, the Etihad and St James’ Park before the season is out which will provide difficult tests for Mikel Arteta’s side. Manchester City also do have a game in hand on the Gunners.
With two months left to play the competition has reached its business end and with Arsenal winning 23 out of their 29 Premier League game this season, they have proven they’re here to stay.
Manchester City have won four out of the last five league titles in England and clearly have more experience than the young Arsenal side who are fighting to win the club’s first league title in 19 years.
City might have the experience but Arsenal have the fearlessness, hunger and desire to become legends in the red part of North London with Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta driving his side to the very top.
The Citizen’s defender Akanji has now commented on their chances and says they have to win all of their remaining games in order to win the Premier League this season.
He says via Manchester World:
“There are still a lot of games to go but we probably have to win all the games, and that is what we aim for, and we hope we can do that.
It’s coming towards the end of the season and it’s tough games. We need to win in all of the games in these competitions. That is what we are working for and what we want. We have done a good job recently.”
