Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka believes the Gunners are still in the title race after securing a comfortable 2-0 win against rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby last week Saturday. The Gunners have had an inconsistent start to the new season and are currently 12 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City who have been unstoppable so far this season and remain the only unbeaten team in the League.
The Gunners are currently tied on 22 points alongside Liverpool and Burnley, but sit sixth on the log due to a superior goal difference possessed by the Reds. Although, it’s still early days but the level of consistency shown by the Premier League leaders is yet to be matched by any other team so far this season having won their last ten matches and have already been tagged favorites for the Premier League title, as a result, fans have been placing their money on bettors like freebets.org knowing fully well that their chances of winning the league is quite high.
However, the defensive midfielder believes the Citizens winning streak can be halted and the deficit between both clubs can be reduced.
Granit Xhaka as quoted when asked if the Gunners can catch Premier League leaders Manchester City, he said;
“I think in football everything is possible. Manchester City, at the moment, are on a very good run, they’re doing very well and others have dropped points – which they haven’t done – but it’s conceivable that they could drop points as well,” he also added,
“They might not continue as they have been. But our aim is just to focus on ourselves. We know we need to work and we’re convinced that we can compete at the top.
“Everything’s possible, I’m a person who thinks realistically but has dreams and fantasies as well. In football, everything is always possible.”
The Pep Guardiola’s side are currently out of sight for now but with the hectic festive schedule coming up, the Citizens might drop points if they get unlucky with injuries and the Gunners go on a winning streak, the Gunners might be back in the title race and the deficit between both clubs can be reduced.
The Gunners travel to Turf Moor on Sunday and will need to repeat the kind of determination and hunger exhibited against Tottenham Hotspur last week Saturday if they want to keep in touch with the Citizens.
