Alexandre Lacazette has admitted that Arsenal’s title hopes are all but over, with the Premier League side needing a ‘miracle’ to catch Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola’s outfit someway better than every other team in the league this season.

Arsenal were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton on Sunday as their thin title hopes were reduced even further. Charlie Austin struck early for the hosts before Olivier Giroud levelled things up late in the game, and the two teams had to settle for a share of the spoils in the end.

Arsenal are reportedly preparing for a raid from Premier League rivals Manchester City in January as the league leaders look to poach Alexis Sanchez at the next available chance. This comes after a number of bids from City were supposedly rejected last summer.

Arsenal were hugely unfortunate to fall to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United on Saturday as the home side were thwarted almost singlehandedly by David de Gea. The goalkeeper pulled off a string of sublime saves to keep the hosts out.

The Citizens and Gunners had several approaches for Evans rejected this summer with Arsenal said to have lodged a £25 million bid in effort to land him this last transfer window.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to strengthen their position in the Premier League’s top-four.

The Gunners moved into the Champions League spots last time out by recording a 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor courtesy of a stoppage-time penalty from Alexis Sanchez.

Arsene Wenger’s side have been rather inconsistent of late. However, their recent Premier League form has been strong, as the Gunners have now won four of their last five games in the English top-flight.

According to Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka, the Gunners can still catch Premier League leaders Manchester City this season. The Switzerland international has to say that really, though.

He cannot exactly say that the Gunners are just hoping to claim a Champions League place, which they are odds of 11/8 to do this season. The midfielder has to say his team are aiming for the title.

When asked if he thought the Gunners could catch Manchester City, Xhaka told Sky Sports News: “I think in football everything is possible,”

Arsene Wenger claims Manchester City are ‘on another planet’ 0

Arsenal returned to Premier League duty by dismantling Tottenham 2-0 in the north London derby on Saturday. Following the win, Arsene Wenger praised runaway leaders Manchester City, claiming they are “on another planet”.

The Gunners were in superb form on Saturday as they defied the odds to pick up a vital win. Indeed, Tottenham went into the game as heavy favourites, with most resigned to the fact that the points would be going home with Spurs.

However, Tottenham did not ever really get going, and they were made to pay by Arsenal who were superb on the day, with the 2-0 scoreline actually flattering Spurs in the end.

Martin Keown has called on Arsene Wenger to make these changes 2

Former-Arsenal defender Martin Keown has urged manager Arsene Wenger to utilise Jack Wilshere and Alexandre Laczaette following the team’s 3-1 defeat at the hands of Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Arsenal could not achieve the seemingly impossible on Sunday as they fell to Manchester City. The Premier League leaders were once again in top form creatively, but Arsenal were spared a hammering as Pep Guardiola’s men were uncharacteristically poor in front of goal.

Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus scored the goals for City, and Arsenal could only reply via a drilled effort from Alexandre Lacazette. While the defeat was hardly an embarrassing one, it leaves the Gunners teetering on the edge of yet another season without a Premier League title.

Arsenal suffered a 3-1 defeat against Premier League leaders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

City took less than two minutes of the game to have a clear opening. The Citizens hit the visitors on the counter-attacking as Raheem Sterling broke at pace, before finding Kevin De Bruyne.

The Belgian international then played a reverse pass to Sergio Aguero, who from a tight angle inside the penalty area fired just wide of Petr Cech’s post. Arsenal’s first threat of the game came on five minutes, as Alex Iwobi fired well over the bar from distance.

Arsenal travel to face Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday as Arsene Wenger renews his rivalry with Pep Guardiola.

Arsenal have been in far better form of late following a disappointing 2-1 loss at the hands of Watford. Since then they have gone unbeaten in the Premier League, Europa League and Carabao Cup.

Despite a 0-0 draw with Red Star Belgrade in their last game, Arsenal are in ideal form going into this one. The London side have been able to keep up with reigning champions Chelsea in the league, while they are just a single point behind Tottenham.

On Sunday, Arsenal faces a tough test as the Gunners travel to the Etihad Stadium to play Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have a near perfect record in the Premier League this season. The home side have recorded nine wins in their ten league games so far.

Everton were the only team to avoid defeat against the Citizens in the English top-flight this season. The Toffees managed a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium in August.

The men from Manchester are now undefeated in their last 18 Premier League games, having recorded 15 wins in the process. Guardiola’s side have also won their last eight games in the English top-flight.
