EPL: Arsenal vs Liverpool should’ve been draw – Petit predicts title winners


Former Arsenal midfielder, Emmanuel Petit, has said that he is not sure they can compete with Manchester City for the title this season.

The Gunners picked up their eighth win in nine games with a 2-1 win over Liverpool on Sunday.

This form has led to many fans and pundits hailing Mikel Arteta’s men as title contenders.

However, Petit, who won the league and cup double with Arsenal in 1998, still thinks that City will be too much for the Gunners as they target a third consecutive domestic crown.

He told Genting Casino: “Arsenal have started very well but there’s still a big gap between them and Man City for them to win the title. They showed last week against Spurs that they’ve improved so much and the fact they’re scoring goals so early shows their mentality and their motivation.

“It doesn’t matter which team they play against, they still show the same identity and personality. It was a great game against Liverpool as they had to score again and again and again. We all knew Liverpool were an injured beast, but they showed at least they’re still a big team and have big players. I felt it should have been a draw.”
