EPL: Jamie Carragher names team that’ll be massive problem for Arsenal in title race


Former Liverpool man, Jamie Carragher has noted that Manchester City will continue to be a ‘massive problem’ for Arsenal.

This was after Pep Guardiola’s men came from behind to thrash Tottenham 4-2 in the Premier League on Thursday night.

He noted that the Citizens demonstrated their ability to fight for results which is something Arsenal should watch out for.

City were 2-0 down at half-time at home to Spurs with goals from Dejan Kulusevski and Emerson Royal.

But Riyad Mahrez scored a brace, with Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland also scoring to secure a 4-2 victory.

Liverpool legend, Carragher said Premier League leaders Arsenal should be concerned.

“I think Man City now have got that thing that Manchester United had when I was a player,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“I think since May they’ve gone 2-0 behind in the Premier League five times and they haven’t lost one. They’ve won three and drawn two.

“There’s something special about them, we know that they’re a great team.

“That’s a massive problem for Arsenal this season, it’s been a big problem for Liverpool in the last few years. I think that result tonight for Arsenal will be a real blow.”

Arsenal are still leading the Premier League table with five points ahead of the Citizens.

Mikel Arteta’s Gunners are scheduled to take on Manchester United in what will be a crucial game for both teams his weekend

A defeat for Arsenal would close the gap at the top of the table to just two points and mount pressure on Mikel Arteta’s team that are hoping to win the league again for the first time since 2004.
