Technically, Arsenal is still in control of the Premier League title race, but only just, following a 3-3 draw against Southampton on Friday.
The Gunners had recently lost two-goal leads, but even though they managed to salvage a point while trailing 3-1 in the last minutes, players like Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, and Gabriel Jesus’ reactions after the game’s conclusion spoke for themselves.
The truth is that Arsenal lost a fantastic chance to capitalize on Manchester City’s absence from Premier League action this weekend by building a seven-point lead.
When the two clubs face off at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night, pressure will be on Pep Guardiola’s side because they currently lead the league.
Even though Arsenal hasn’t technically lost a game, the results since the victory against Leeds United during the international break have turned for the worst.
However, those 2-2 draws against Liverpool and West Ham United after leading 2-0 and the thrilling six-goal game against Southampton at home may come back to haunt them on May 28.
