Man City’s step closer to Treble Glory as Arsenal’s Title Dreams Fade

Manchester City are four wins away from being announced the Premier League title winners, and Sunday’s 0-3  victory over Everton showed exactly why they are so close to what would be an amazing Treble. In another match Arsenal’s title hopes were dealt a blow after a 0-3 defeat at home making City one win from lifting the title.

Manchester City are on the brink of securing a third successive Premier League crown. However, Arsenal’s defeat to Brighton, coupled with Manchester City’s comfortable victory against Everton, leaves Pep Guardiola’s side four points clear with the end of the season drawing near.

All of Man City’s possible remaining games, 2022-23

  • Wed, 17 May vs Real Madrid (h) Champions League semi-final
  • Sun, 21 May vs Chelsea (h) Premier League
  • Wed, 24 May vs Brighton (a) Premier League
  • Sun, 28 May vs Brentford (a) Premier League
  • Sat, 3 Jun vs Man Utd (n) FA Cup final
  • Sat, 10 Jun vs AC Milan/Inter Milan (n)  Champions League final

Arsenal topped the table for a long time this year under the management of Mikel Arteta, a former assistant to Guardiola.

In addition, three consecutive draws against Liverpool, West Ham and Southampton weakened Arsenal’s hold on the top spot, before a heavy 4-1 defeat to their title rivals Manchester City.

The league leaders have played one fewer game than Arsenal, who have only two games left to play and are on 81 points.

That means that the highest tally that Arteta’s side can achieve is 87 points but Manchester City currently have 85 points – one more win will be enough to make certain of a fifth title under Guardiola.

Man City next host Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday 21 May, which will be their first chance to make sure of another crown.

That fixture is their only remaining game on home match, with trips to Brighton and Brentford closing Manchester City’s season.

Astonishingly, even a draw at the City Ground would leave Arsenal needing Manchester City to both lose their three remaining games and suffer an improbable goal difference drop to keep faint title hopes alive.

Reliable Rodri is the best in the world

The Spain international has been at City since 2019 and the lowest amount of games he has played in a single season is 46, in 2021-22. He has already played 51 times in this campaign.

Rodri had just turned 23 when he joined from Atletico Madrid and he has grown into a phenomenal footballer.

When he first joined, he was more pragmatic with his thinking when he had the ball and focused on the defensive side of his job.

Now he is far more productive in possession, pops up with some handy goals and always wants the ball in what seems like perilous positions.

But defensively he is still absolutely brilliant at spotting danger and he is an actual physical presence at set-pieces too.

He is going to be massive for City when they face Madrid and, the way he is playing, it will be the same story in the Champions League final against one of the Milan clubs too.
