It would be a real shame to see the Premier League turn into the Bundesliga, with Manchester City playing the rule of Bayern Munich.
Barring a miracle, Arsenal have now blown their chance, and we’ll see City win their fifth league title in six years. A treble is going to happen too unless Real Madrid and/or Manchester United can stop them, in their respective competitions . It all feels inevitable.

All Arsenal can do now is win out, and hope for some City stumbles. It has happened before.
Playing Chelsea is certainly a great chance to end the four game winless streak.
Perhaps this is the winning hand to play, in the interests of doing so.
