TRANSFER SAGA: Edu eyes 'next Erling Haaland' move as Gary Neville fires warning at Mikel Arteta

Gary Neville issues Arsenal ‘difficult’ Premier League title warning ahead of Leicester clash

Arsenal continue to defy expectations and lead the way in their Premier League title challenge against reigning champions Manchester City. Manchester United are not far off the pace in third place and could make a late challenge should Marcus Rashford continue to stay fit and firing in the goals.

The Gunners fell to second in the table as City picked up a crucial 3-1 win at the Emirates Stadium. The title race took yet another twist just days later as Arsenal came from behind twice to win 4-2 against Aston Villa, as City drew 1-1 against Nottingham Forest despite having a number of clear chances to win the game.

There is a lingering problem for Arteta ahead of a crucial run of fixtures for the north London outfit. Arsenal have conceded 11 goals in their last eight league matches and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has warned they must improve defensively if they are to get their hands on the Premier League trophy for the first time since 2004.

Erling Haaland makes Martin Odegaard and Kevin De Bruyne decision amid Arsenal title fight

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has made a major decision regarding Martin Odegaard as the golden boot race leader labelled the Arsenal captain as his ‘biggest rival’. The Gunners are currently two points ahead of City in the Premier League despite losing to Pep Guardiola’s side last week.

26 goals in 22 appearances in his debut Premier League season is an astonishing record, and throughout his career he has played with many talented playmakers. At Borussia Dortmund it was Jude Bellingham, now at City it’s Kevin De Bruyne – and for his country it’s Gunners captain Odegaard.

Bellingham could follow Haaland from Dortmund to the Etihad Stadium this summer, but it is thought that Real Madrid and Liverpool lead the race for his signature with a number of others keen. Now the 22-year-old striker has chosen which player is his favourite in a game of start, bench, sell.

 

‘This is stupid!’ – Arsenal fans react to Premier League decision on potential title deciders

Arsenal are at the centre of one of the most exciting Premier League title races in recent years. Mikel Arteta is going toe-to-toe with his former colleague Pep Guardiola as the Gunners lead the way at the top of the table, two points clear of Manchester City.

The reigning champions finally moved above the north Londoners in the table last week as they picked up a 3-1 victory at the Emirates Stadium. City slipped up just days later as the title race took another twist with Guardiola’s side drawing 1-1 to Nottingham Forest after Arsenal had beaten Aston Villa.

First up is a trip to Leicester, before Arsenal play their game in hand against Everton, quickly followed by a home clash against Bournemouth. football.london takes a look at all the reaction from supporters to the news that they will not be able to watch the Gunners live on television in their next three matches.

Reddit user Eethk7 posted: “Cant complain of VAR if no one can see the game.” Another user commented: “And they wonder why people use illegal streams. This is stupid.”
