‘We aren’t going to pretend’: Saka makes Liverpool claim when sending Man City message

Bukayo Saka acknowledges that Manchester City, Arsenal’s main contender for the Premier League title, will face Liverpool after the international break, and he believes that it will be a difficult match for City.

He does not want to ignore this upcoming fixture and admits that City will have a tough time against the Reds.

Arsenal is now eight points ahead of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table after City’s FA Cup match against Burnley and Arsenal’s 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

Arsenal’s elimination from the FA Cup, while their title rivals remain in the competition, appears to have worked to their advantage.

Despite having played an extra game, they have more points on the board than their competitors, putting pressure on them to catch up.

The domestic football season is now entering a break for international fixtures, but when everyone returns, the title race will be nearing its end.

On April 1, Manchester City will face Liverpool at home while Arsenal will play Leeds United a few hours later. If Liverpool wins, Arsenal’s lead at the top of the table could increase to 11 points by 5 pm on April 1, as per Saka’s message.

“I feel like we are playing well and the team is playing well,” said Saka. “We just want to continue like this.

On the eight-point lead: “It’s very significant. We know who they (Man City) play next. We aren’t going to pretend that we don’t know. We know it’s a tough game for them.

“At the same time, we need to focus on ourselves. We have ten finals to go. We are out of every competition and it’s only the Premier League. That’s the way we are treating it.”

Liverpool’s upcoming games after the international break include a match against Arsenal at Anfield, not just against Manchester City. Arteta, during Arsenal’s documentary All or Nothing, spoke about the challenge of playing Liverpool on their home ground.

This might work against Arsenal when they visit Merseyside as opponents will use that statement as added pressure.

However, if Arteta and his team can come through their upcoming matches unscathed, they could end their 20-year wait to be crowned English champions.
