Arsenal have been showing great form in the Premier League in recent weeks, which they confirmed in an important game after the repre break against Leeds. The returning Gabriel Jesus in particular shone in the match, scoring twice. Manchester City dismantled Liverpool at home and are still eight points behind the leaders.
Arsenal confirmed their great form with two goals from Gabriel Jesus
Saturday in the British Isles was full of expectations after the competition had a break during the national break. Arsenal escaped their pursuers in the new year and are now virtually being chased only by the two Manchester clubs.
Leading Arsenal are showing terrific form. Since the home loss to City in mid-February, the Gunners have won seven consecutive games and remain 100 percent in the Premier League to this day.
Although the 4-1 win was not easy to come by, Mikel Arteta’s team eventually earned another important point in the title chase thanks to a great second half. Gabriel Jesus, the team’s biggest attacking threat, finally scored after an unwanted medical timeout.
First, after his beautiful individual action, a penalty was whistled, which the fouled Jesus himself converted. Only to then run onto Belgian Trossard’s well-timed centre in the second half and split the net for the second time. After a three-month break, it’s a big boost ahead of the final title race.
Manchester City dismantled Liverpool and are still 8 points behind the leaders
Manchester City, who hosted Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool in the round robin, like leaders Arsenal, needed to take all three points at home. Pep Guardiola’s team lost the points at Nottingham right after the aforementioned win at Arsenal, but they are still looking to put pressure on the leading team from North London.
In an important match, despite the absence of Erling Haaland, the City team completely dismantled the Liverpool players, although, like Arsenal, the match was not easy, especially in the first half. But after Mohamed Salah’s goal, Manchester players equalized before half-time and after the change of sides they turned the tide of the match with three goals.
The winning goal was scored by Kevin de Bruyne, who confirmed in the match the great form he brought from the national team reunion. Manchester City, however, despite a clear 4-1 victory, is 8 points behind the leading Arsenal, but has a game to spare.
Arsenal have nine games left in the season and a trip to the Etihad Stadium at the end of April. In addition, a slightly tougher draw awaits in the Premier League, but City are still fighting in the Champions League to win the millionaire’s competition and especially the quarter-final duel with Bayern Munich will cost Pep Guardiola’s team a lot of strength in the final battle for the domestic title.
