    The misery was clear on their faces at full-time – some players gazed into space while others sat despairingly on the pitch. The result means that Manchester City only needs one more win to clinch another title. “It is going to be very difficult now, we have to be honest,” said Martin Odegaard after his team failed to keep up with City’s impressive run. “It feels like there is no hope now.”

    An Apology from Mikel Arteta

    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta apologized for his side’s poor performance stating ‘We have to apologize for our performance in the second half because it was not acceptable.’ He however still insisted mathematically an unlikely scenario could see them take home this year’s championship trophy if results go their way:
    • Manchester City will have to slip up in their remaining three games.
    • Arsenal still needs two wins and a draw in the hope that Manchester City slips up or draws over the same period.

    Gary Neville Believes it’s Over for Arsenal

This moment was always going to come where Arsenal find it difficult, and they haven’t been able to get through it.”


    The Premier League title race may be over for Arsenal, but fans can take heart from glimpses of quality displayed by this youthful team throughout the season. As we look forward to next season, there is no doubt that Mikel Arteta would be working hard at building a more solid and consistent side capable of competing at this level once again.
