Jamie Carragher has claimed that Arsenal must get at least four points from their two games against Manchester City to win the Premier League.
Carragher was speaking on Sky Sports ahead of Manchester City's visit to Chelsea, as they trail Arsenal by eight points going into tonight's game.
Arsenal have surprised everyone with their performances this season. Rewind 18 months ago, with the squad looking unsettled and no involvement in European football, times were looking bleak for Mikel Arteta's side.
However, Arteta's project is now showing it's true potential. This young Arsenal team have performed way beyond expectations, with just one defeat so far in the Premier League.
After heartbreak in May, many Arsenal fans would have taken a top four spot with no questions asked. However, now that they are in this position, fans can be forgiven for starting to dream
Carragher Outlines Objectives For Arsenal
Having dominated the Premier League in the last five years, Manchester City will not let their title slip without a fight.
With the goals of Erling Haaland, and incredible talent all over the pitch, they will be Arsenal's biggest challengers.
They were set to play in September, before the game was postponed. With the sides now set to meet in February, Jamie Carragher outlines what Arsenal must do in those fixtures.
Watching Arsenal the other night, I just thought they needed to relax. There's so long to go in the season.
When you are talking about Manchester City winning so many games in a row, that's what Arsenal have virtually done in the last two or three months. I think Arsenal have only dropped points in three games- that is some going.
I think a lot of it will come down to the two games against Manchester City. If Arsenal want to win the title, they probably have to take four points off Manchester City I would expect, and that would put them in a great position.
Arsenal dropped points against the best defensive team in the league right now, so there's no need to panic whatsoever."
While Jamie Carragher seems confident of their chances, they will likely need investment in January to fend off the challenge of Manchester City.
