  • Arsenal are in the Premier League title race for the second consecutive season
  • The Gunners famously bottled the title last year, allowing Man City to capitalize
  • The club have teamed up with Prime Hydrate to launch exclusive water bottles

Arsenal should know better than to help rival fans with banter materials and put their fans in panic mode after their latest partnership caused a stir on social media.

The Gunners are in the Premier League title race for the second consecutive season, and this time they are up against last season's champions Manchester City and Liverpool.

Per a post by Arsenal on X, the club teamed up with Prime Hydrate, a company owned by KSI and Logan Paul, to create an exclusive range of water bottles.

The collaboration has seen rival fans throw shade at the club that they are about to bottle the title again, despite being top of the table going into the final weeks.

@Clarke13George replied:

“Very brave with such a close title race creating an Arsenal bottle.”

@georgeachillea replied:

“They actually made an Arsenal bottle ready for the end of the season.”

“All Bottles no Cup, bottling as simple as ABC… Arsenal Bottling Corp, be there.”

“Are we bottling it again?”

Rival fans are right to be confident that the banter will be served, while the Gunners are also in their right to be worried that their wait for a Premier League title could extend further.

Per Optajoe, Mikel Arteta's team spent 248 days at the top of the table but failed to win it, a record. Their capitulation was confirmed after losing 1-0 to Nottingham Forest.

In January, they were eight points clear of City. In March, a run of three consecutive draws and a 4-1 loss at the Etihad Stadium reduced the advantage.

The fans knew they were done when they lost 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium to Brighton before Taiwo Awoniyi ended their hopes permanently a week later.

They sit top of this season's table with 71 points, level with Liverpool and a point above champions Man City.

Arteta compared Arsenal to City

Sports Brief reported on Arteta comparing Arsenal to Man City ahead of their Premier League clash at the Etihad, which ended in a goalless draw in March.

The manager admitted his side are off their opponent's level despite battling them in the title race for the second consecutive season, with this year's race still open.
