Jamie O’Hara reveals three matches Arsenal will lose and ‘bottle title race’

Jamie O’Hara, a former Tottenham footballer, is certain that Arsenal will fail to win the Premier League title by the end of the season.

Despite currently holding a five-point lead over Manchester City, the closest competitor, with only 11 games remaining.

City still has the chance to catch up with Arsenal, especially as one of the remaining matches is between the two title rivals.

O’Hara highlighted the upcoming week as a critical period for Arsenal, as they are set to play against Chelsea and Newcastle as well, predicting that this would be when their title aspirations will crumble and allow City to overtake them.

“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,” he told talkSPORT.

“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.”

Despite Jamie O’Hara’s prediction that Arsenal will not win the Premier League title this season, Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has a different perspective. Guardiola believes that Arsenal are the favourites to clinch the title and finally end their 19-year wait for it.

“Still Arsenal are the favourites because they are in front. They made an incredible first leg, they dropped a little bit but now they’re coming back,” he said.

“They have had many years not winning the Premier League and it gives you a little extra to win games in 93, 98 minutes. That is something they have that we don’t have because we won back-to-back two times.

“That’s why when people say about your opinion on the team and the season it’s after two times back-to-back and 50 points for our opponents in the first half still we are there.

“Normally in this country when you win something a lot and you don’t start well or someone is a bit better, you drop it. You are not consistent. Still we are there. This is the best trophy and compliment that we can have.”
