Roy Keane pinpoints Arsenal unique advantage in Premier League title race against Man City and Liverpool

Roy Keane has pointed out the unique advantage that Arsenal possesses over Manchester City and Liverpool in the Premier League title race.

Despite a significant victory over Liverpool last weekend that reinvigorated their title aspirations, Arsenal’s momentum has been offset by subsequent wins from both Liverpool and Manchester City, reinstating a five-point gap.

In the previous season, Arsenal engaged in a tight title race with Manchester City, and it appears that Mikel Arteta’s team has not allowed the disappointment from that campaign to deter their current efforts.

Over the summer, notable signings including Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber, and David Raya were brought in to strengthen the Emirates Stadium squad, with one particular signing already proving to be impactful.

The addition of Declan Rice in midfield has significantly bolstered Arsenal’s defensive capabilities, while also making his mark in attacking plays.

Rice’s contributions, including three goals in the Premier League this season, have directly contributed to four points for Arsenal, with his goal against Chelsea sparking a notable comeback.

In contemplating Arsenal’s chances for the title, Keane appears to imply that the 24-year-old, who scored in Sunday’s dominant 6-0 victory against his former club West Ham, will need to play a pivotal role if Arsenal is to surpass Liverpool and Manchester City in the title race.

“I think we’ll find out over the next couple of months,” he said on Sky Sports. “They’re more equipped than last year, we mentioned Rice earlier, and they’re more physically equipped to make a run for it.

“They just came up short last year both physically and mentally and we remember the game last year when they were 2-0 up over West Ham, perhaps cruising, and then gave the goals away but time will tell over the next few months. If I was in Arsenal’s camp, you’d be quietly confident that you’ll be in the mix right at the end.”

After defeating Liverpool, Arsenal’s upcoming fixtures include matches against two newly-promoted teams, with the aim being to secure maximum points.

Sandwiched between these fixtures is a game against Newcastle, who will visit north London aiming to achieve a double over Arsenal, following their 1-0 victory at St James’ Park earlier in the season.
