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.

The Premier League title will be won by Guardiola’s team for the third consecutive year if they reach the total of 94 points they can achieve by winning each 

of their next eight games. They will host the Gunners at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday. Having said that, it is essentially in Arsenal’s hands as well as City’s. With six games remaining, the current league leaders’ maximum point total is 93, but in order to get there, they must defeat Man City and continue their flawless record through the season’s final match against Wolves.

Though the dynamics will shift if Arteta is able to lead the Gunners to their

 first Premier League victory over City since December 2015, the encounter at 

Etihad is by no means title decider as the north London team will end the 

night on top of the standings. City can only score 91 points if they lose, while they can score 92 points if they draw. As result, depending on how the top two teams perform, Arsenal’s new goal 

to win the Premier League will be 92 or 93 points if they can avoid losing in 

Manchester.

Manchester City (A) on April 26

Newcastle United (A), 7/5

On May 14, Brighton (H)
