Neville is wrong though. It was more important for both teams not to lose.

Advantage is with Liverpool now and I think their run in looks easiest, but anything can happen in this league.
Surely handing Liverpool the advantage made it a must win for both? The draw could cost both sides.

I don’t think Liverpool are as strong as either team. They have a two point advantage, I think that’s doable, three points would have been much worse.

I still think Liverpool win it, and while they have the easier run in, I can still see them dropping points.

I hate them lot down the road, but it’s going to be hard for them not to win things in the next year or two.

Klopp going, City losing Gunda and peak KDB, Walker, them buying an elite striker, the demons are aligning.

Fkin hope we add quality in the summer, otherwise we’ll be minding the gap again

Arsenal fans lauding Arteta as some kind of tactical genius for sticking 10 men behind the ball. Peak Allardyce or Dyche.

The scum have learnt from their previous mistakes

Don't match city and play like a small team and counter

And that is a worry as lego head is showing he can adapt his philosophy for certain situations. We have to admit they are becoming a well run club

I may be clutching here but I’m hoping that if they fail to win it this year then they could slide a bit. They kind of remind me of us under Poch and I’m hoping they suffer a similar slide as we did after that CL final. Not really based on anything other than a feeling/hope but normally managers don’t last longer than 5 years or so at one club and you just get that vibe that if they fuck it this year the best years under Arteta could’ve already been and gone.

They’re playing well and spending what it takes to attract top talent again. But they are still the cringiest bunch of ****s on the face of the earth.

Better Smeg than Red.

Gary Nevillehas been going on all week that if Arsenal want to win the title they should go to City and win.
Not rely on someone else to beat them. Instead they went disguised as Crystal Palace and got a point.
Not surprised Richy is Brazil centre forward , Jesus is no centre forward.
City had one of their regular back 4 and kpr . Never get a better chance.
i hope Harry is revved up for the CL games because it is only he who can win it for Bayern, they are shite.
If there was one day when you might expect Jesus to rise from the dead! :cautious: :shifty:

Go to the bathroom and wash your mouth out with soap!
There maybe something to what you say- but it's dirty- get to the bathroom now, off you go!

Put it the other way, if the game had been at Arsenal , City would have played as they always do.
Arsenal played a back 6, Mourinho tactics. If teams attack City they give up chances , especially without Walker who is vital with his pace. If they win the title they will say it was justified.
Wonder what our reaction would be if we were in their position, went to city, took them on and got stuffed 4-2. I hope we can be in that position one day. Rest assured Ange wouldn’t play a back 6, would he?

I'm relaxed a little to be honest.

I think on some occasions you can just avoid defeats against your rivals and beat all the others.

Problem is City and Liverpool have both got the majority of their trickier games out the way.

Arsenal have us and United away. They'll fancy themselves but if they don't win both that means they really can't drop points elsewhere.
City have their trickiest game to come at our stadium. We all know the league results we’ve had v them. Cup doesn’t count as it’s a different competition.

They're having their peak Pochettino Spurs era at the moment, very good and well drilled but not quite good enough and requiring one or two next level players. Their team is good as a unit but they don't have any real proven world class attacking players, they need a Hazard, Salah, De Bruyne type player or this is as good as they get.

I still maintain that if they were to win the league this season then on paper it's one of the weakest Premier League winning lineups ever.

It's all so contrived and weird. I don't know why he can't just be substituted like a normal player, it's like he has to be escorted by physios every time and there's this totally transparent "will he or won't he" leading up to the following match and, surprise surprise, yes, he will, every time.

Would genuinely not surprise me if they do it to drive social media engagement

He's missed something silly like 3 single games through injury since he started in the men's team. He's missed more for England.

They don't really get injuries to their key players too often, certainly not to the extent of literally every other team in the league
