MADRID, 16 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
Arsenal missed a 0-2 loss against West Ham this Sunday and ended up giving up a draw (2-2) that reduces their title options after matchday 31 of the Premier, while Manchester United clinched third place with a 0 -2 against Nottingham Forest.
Mikel Arteta’s team begins to suffer from altitude sickness at a bad time, in the final stretch of a fight that has almost always led to reconquer the league 19 years later. However, after the draw against Liverpool, Arsenal stumbled again giving Manchester City more options.
Those from London, still leaders but with four rental points and one game more than a City they also have to visit, found themselves at a cruising pace in the first half against West Ham thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus and Odegaard at 10 minutes. Before the break, the locals cut through Benrahma.
Saka missed a penalty for Arsenal after the restart and after three minutes, Bowen made it 2-2 for Wet Ham. Another wasted income like at Anfield last week for an Arsenal that, in the same way, was saved from defeat at the end. On the other hand, United took advantage of Newcastle’s loss to Aston Villa on Saturday to clinch third place.
Ten Hag’s men got rid of the bad taste in their mouths from the 2-2 defeat against Sevilla in the first leg of the Europa League quarterfinals with a well-deserved victory. Antony and Dalot scored the goals at the City Ground, where the ‘Red Devils’ took an important step to secure the Champions League, with six points ahead of fifth and one game less.
