“They deserve it,” – A legend of Liverpool predicts the title as Arsenal extends its advantage over Manchester City

Jose Enrique predicts title race between Arsenal and Man City

Jose Enrique, a former Liverpool player, believes Arsenal can keep Manchester City at bay and capture the Premier League championship. As of right now, the Gunners have a healthy lead over the Sky Blues.

As we reach the season’s last international break, Arsenal leads City by eight points after a 4-1 victory against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Arsenal are more set to win the championship fight and take home their first league trophy since 2004 despite City having a game in hand.

Liverpool legend believes Arsenal have what it takes

It may be said that Pep Guardiola’s squad has an easier final stretch, but they also have additional FA Cup and Champions League matches to contend with, whilst Mikel Arteta’s club is only focused on the Premier League title after being eliminated from the Europa League.

Enrique also thinks Arsenal can defeat City and says doing so would be better for English football, despite acknowledging that it won’t be simple.


“As a neutral fan, I’d also want Arsenal to win because Manchester City have won four out of the last five Premier League titles, so it would be something different.”

The Scousers have a say in this

With trips to City on April 1 and Arsenal just eight days later, Enrique’s former team, Liverpool, will have a significant impact on the title race.

Jurgen Klopp’s team defeated the Citizens 1-0 at Anfield earlier in the year but fell short 3-2 at the Emirates.

Pep Guardiola is hoping that his Manchester City players return from their international duty in good health so they can focus on getting ready for their game against Liverpool after the break.

Liverpool are seven points behind fourth place and current Premier League champions Man City are eight points behind Arsenal despite having a game in hand in the race for the title.
