This is not the first time that City have had to come from behind to seal the crown – in 2012 they won the title after falling eight points behind with six games left to play.
“We can see how competitive the Premier League is it is tough to be at the top we missed a good opportunity last night, maybe we didn’t play in the way we have shown”.
The Gunners have not won in their last four matches in all competitions – in the FA Cup against Hull, the Champions League against Barca and the league against Manchester United and Swansea.
“At the moment, I believe that we need to get back to positive results before we speak about the championship which is at stake at the moment”.
“The players are very disappointed and feel bad but the way we fought back tonight in the second half was fantastic, except we could not score”. “We know it will be hard but we have to believe”.
Tottenham are three points behind leaders Leicester and Pochettino will be expecting an immediate response after West Ham ended their run of six league wins on the bounce. “We are going out to win games as we should be doing but even if we win Saturday we know it is not job done”.
Arsenal have not finished below rivals Spurs during Wenger’s tenure but they are at risk of spurning arguably their best chance to win the league since last lifting the trophy in 2003-04.
However, Spurs failed to find that crucial third goal, that could have killed off the game, and Arsene Wenger’s men finally rescued a point out of the north London derby with a 79th minute strike from Alexis Sanchez. After losing to Manchester United and Swansea City in the past week, Arsenal enters the weekend facing a must-win match against Tottenham. “But we don’t have only two games after to achieve something”, the former Southampton manager said. He has enough experience to play this type of game and he has played this game before so I think he will be fine.
Never has a North London derby been more important.
Tottenham are eager to bounce back themselves after they slipped to their fourth league defeat of the campaign at West Ham on Wednesday. We prepare for every single game with the same intensity, the same focus and there are not a lot of special things to do.
