Yaya Toure delivers Man City Premier League title race verdict

Yaya Toure delivers Man City Premier League title race verdict

Yaya Toure, a former Manchester City midfielder, believes that the race for the Premier League title is currently undecided following the results on Saturday.

After winning 3-1 against Arsenal on Wednesday night, City briefly moved to the top of the league on goal difference. However, Arsenal regained their position at the summit after a thrilling 4-2 victory against Aston Villa in the early kick-off.

Later that day, City had the opportunity to reclaim their spot at the top of the table against Nottingham Forest. Despite controlling the game, they failed to add to Bernardo Silva’s goal, and their lead was canceled out by Chris Wood’s late equalizer.

Yaya Toure, who was recently honored with the 2023 Football Writers’ Association Tribute Award, recognizing his significant contribution to the national game, believes that the top two teams in the Premier League are evenly matched.

He thinks that the title race is still up for grabs and either Manchester City or Arsenal could emerge as champions at the end of the season.

“At this moment Arsenal are doing fantastically well,” Toure said as he collected the 2023 Football Writers’ Association Tribute Award in London on Sunday evening.

“The pressure is going to go both ways. You can see the results where Man City lost a point and Arsenal get three points in a tough game where they have twice been on the back foot.

“I hope Man City will make it but let’s see as they are both in fantastic form in the running at the moment.”

Currently, Manchester City is two points behind Arsenal in the Premier League table. However, Arsenal has played one less game than City, giving them an advantage in the title race. This means that if Arsenal win their outstanding game, they will extend their lead over City to five points.

Manchester City will have a brief respite from the Premier League when they travel to face RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League. The first leg of the round of 16 tie is scheduled to take place on Wednesday. This game will offer City the opportunity to shift their focus from the Premier League and concentrate on progressing in the Champions League, a competition they are eager to win this season.
