Former Togo forward, Emmanuel Adebayor, has weighed in on the Premier League title race, favouring Manchester City's chances over Arsenal's bid for glory.

Despite the Gunner's recent 3-2 victory against Tottenham Hotspur propelling them to the top of the table, he remains cautious about their prospects, suggesting they may falter in the remaining three matches.

The former Spurs striker also expressed uncertainty regarding the Londoners' ability to secure nine points in their upcoming games to avoid bottling another EPL title.

While acknowledging Arsenal's youth and talent, he stressed City's consistency and resilience, particularly in their potential to secure victories in their next fixtures.

He is not even certain the Gunners can get the nine points they desperately need.

"Anything can happen. We saw a couple of weeks ago, they lost at home to Aston Villa. Whereas if you ask me can Man City win their next 20 games, I would say yes because they have proved they can do it. Arsenal are looking better and stronger, but I’m not sure they are going to win their last three games," he said, as reported by the Daily Post.

Mikel Arteta's impressive record against top teams, including a noteworthy 19 points from encounters with traditional powerhouses, has boosted the team's confidence.

However, the looming challenge of facing an unpredictable Manchester United and the relentless pursuit of the title holders poses a significant hurdle in their aspirations.

As reported by Football London, City's advantageous position, trailing by only one point with a game in hand, casts doubt on Arsenal's ability to maintain their league lead.

Relentless Man City keep pressure on Arsenal

Sport Brief also reported that Man City kept the heat on Arsenal in the Premier League after seeing off a feisty Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

A three-way race has become a duel between Guardiola's City and Arteta's Gunners, who are determined to make up for last season's late collapse.

The London club knows that if the Citizens win their remaining games, they cannot be caught but show no signs of wilting under intense pressure.
