Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus admits the Gunners have hit a ‘difficult moment’| SolSportHQ
Gabriel Jesus, the Brazilian striker for Manchester City, has given his opinion on the current state of the Premier League title race. He believes that Arsenal are still in with a chance of taking the title, despite a difficult period that saw the Gunners draw 3-3 with Southampton. While Arsenal managed to score two late goals to salvage the draw, the result may have damaged their hopes of taking the top spot in the league.
City, on the other hand, have two games in hand and will be boosted by Arsenal’s failure to defeat a side that’s currently at the bottom of the Premier League table. Gabriel Jesus admitted that the result was tough to take for the Gunners, particularly as they have now failed to win their last three games, handing City the initiative in the battle at the top of the league.
Despite this setback, Arsenal still have the title race within their grasp. Their next fixture involves facing City, and a win would put them eight points clear and back in control. Gabriel Jesus claims that his side won’t fear the challenge, stating that “now is the difficult moment. It is time to stick together until the end.”
Jamie Carragher believes that Arsenal will need a “miraculous” end to the season if they are to pip City to the Premier League crown. However, Gary Neville adds that the fixture next Wednesday night is huge, stating that “it’s not the result they would have wanted before the game, but it is better than they could have hoped for with five or 10 minutes to go. They are still alive. It’s not over yet and still in Arsenal’s hands, but they have the huge task of going to the powerhouse that is Manchester City on Wednesday.”
The Premier League is certainly heating up, and it remains to be seen who will come out on top. Arsenal may be struggling, but with the right attitude, they could still take the title. City, on the other hand, will be looking to take advantage of Arsenal’s recent slip-ups and claim their fourth Premier League trophy. Whatever happens, it’s sure to be an exciting end to the season.
