Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville agree on Arsenal problem that is keeping Man City in title race


Sky Sports pundits Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville have both agreed that Arsenal’s lack of squad depth is keeping Manchester City in with a chance of winning the Premier League.

The Gunners managed to beat Manchester United thanks to a late Eddie Nketiah goal on Sunday as they extended their lead over City. Earlier in the day, the Blues had managed to cut the gap to two points with a victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Arsenal look to be in a solid position to lift the title, however, they still have to play the Blues twice before the end of the season.

On Monday Night Football the Sky Sports pundits also agreed that injuries to Mikel Arteta’s team could derail their push for the title.

Carragher began: “That is the big worry because Arsenal have been very lucky, perhaps it is down to the medical side and the sport science, but they have been very fortunate with injuries.

“If they ever got struck with two or three players out at the same time, sort of like what Chelsea and Liverpool have got, they wouldn’t get across the line, I don’t think.”

“That is vital for them, that is why I think the Europa League and the FA Cup at the weekend, how strong does he go?”

Neville then added: “It is another factor as they are finely tuned in the sense of Europa League, what is he going to do with the FA Cup, obviously those are decisions he will make.

“I think if he does get two or three injuries, which every club gets, then it could go really badly wrong quite quickly.”

City welcome Arsenal to the Etihad on Friday night in the FA Cup before facing them again on February 15 in the Premier League.
