Arsenal Could Hand Man City Premier League Title Advantage as Key Man Risks “Suspension” for the Final Day

Arsenal may have to face the final day of the Premier League season without a key figure, potentially affecting their pursuit to keep pace with Manchester City in the title race until the very last moment.

Arsenal appear set to challenge Manchester City right up to the final stretch of the Premier League title battle.

Unlike last season when they stumbled at this juncture, their recent four consecutive wins following a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa last month demonstrate their potential to contend until the very end.

“They give me the reason to believe that every single day. We are right on it. The motivation for what is ahead is beautiful. We are all expecting that they’re going to have a real go.”

Arsenal’s recent strong form notwithstanding, Manchester City still holds a slight advantage. With just one point behind Arsenal and a game in hand against Tottenham, Pep Guardiola’s side is in a favorable position.

Even if City manage to win their pending game, the title race will extend to the final day of the season, pending Arsenal’s performance against Manchester United this Sunday.

The atmosphere at Old Trafford is expected to be intense, requiring Mikel Arteta’s composed demeanor.

Arteta’s animated touchline behaviour has been a topic of discussion, leading him to top the list of Premier League managers with the most yellow cards this season.

His bookings in matches against Fulham, Brighton, Luton, and both Chelsea fixtures contribute to this statistic.

If Arteta receives another yellow card against United, it would be his sixth of the season, resulting in a touchline ban for Arsenal’s last game against Everton.

Arsenal have previously felt the absence of Arteta due to suspension, resulting in a disappointing 1-0 loss to Aston Villa at Villa Park.

“It was what it was,” the Spaniard said after the game in December. “I tried to adapt. I think the boys did really well to communicate what we wanted and the team had a really good performance.”

Missing arguably the most crucial game for Arsenal since their Emirates Stadium era would severely impact Arteta. His focus is on maintaining composure for Sunday’s pivotal match at Old Trafford.
