Man City advised how they can beat Arsenal and win the Premier League title as Arteta men face ‘real problem’

Man City advised how they can beat Arsenal and win the Premier League title as Arteta men face ‘real problem’

Danny Mills stated that Manchester City “will be back in the game” as they attempt to close the five-point gap between themselves and league leaders Arsenal, who are facing a “real problem” due to Gabriel Jesus’ knee injury.

This season, Mikel Arteta’s development at Arsenal has shifted into high gear, as the erstwhile protégé of Pep Guardiola has witnessed the Gunners play City-like football. This season, the Gunners have only lost one league match, a 3-1 loss to their fierce rivals Manchester United.

When the season resumes, City will be five points behind the North London club. Guardiola’s side travels to Elland Road to face Leeds United more than a month after their last Premier League match, a sobering 2-1 loss at home against Brentford.

But Mills is certain that City has what it takes to defeat Arsenal, citing Jesus’ knee injury while on international duty with Brazil as a turning point in this season’s title fight.

Mills, speaking for 888sport, stated: “I’ve always thought it’s going to be City and I think they will come good at some point, with the strength in depth that they have. Jesus is a real problem for Arsenal because he’s been integral to how good they’ve been. He’s out for three months but that could easily be four months.

“Generally with knee problems they last that little bit longer. So do they now go into the transfer market because he has been so important to them that it’s now going to be very difficult for Arsenal.

“It was always going to be difficult anyway, because City will come strong with their quality. And now Haaland has had a good break and got over any niggles while a lot of their players went out early, so they’ve not going to be as fatigued. Once they get their heads right, City will be back in the game, without a doubt.

“I’ve said from the very beginning, that they desire from City to win three in a row, and do what Manchester United did, will be a huge driving force in their desire to win the title.”
