Jamie Carragher reveals what Arsenal need now to win the Premier League title
Jamie Carragher has shared his insights on what Arsenal must do to clinch the Premier League title, surpassing teams like Liverpool and Manchester City.
The Gunners significantly impacted the title race by defeating Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium.
Currently, Arsenal occupies the third position in the Premier League standings, having garnered 49 points from 23 matches, on par with Manchester City, who have played one game less. Liverpool leads the table with 51 points from 23 games.
Carragher, speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football show, expressed astonishment at Arsenal’s defensive prowess against Liverpool.
The former Anfield star suggests that the “small possibility” Arsenal holds for winning the Premier League title depends heavily on their defensive performance.
“They were better than Liverpool in all areas but the big thing that stood out for me was how strong they were defensively,” said Carragher.
“I never felt at any point in that game that Liverpool looked threatening or that a goal was coming. Liverpool got a fortunate goal, we know that.
“I said after the game that the result was better for Manchester City than Arsenal but Arsenal do have a slim chance of winning the title.
“That chance comes from how good they are defensively.”
