Arsenal offer the title to Manchester City

Pep Guardiola’s players will not play Sunday, against Chelsea, to validate their title of champion of England, but to celebrate it. A fifth title in six seasons that Arsenal will not have been able to challenge them until the end.

With four points behind the Citizens, who also had a game behind, the task of the Gunners would have been very complicated anyway. Only a victory on the lawn of Nottingham Forest, Saturday, during the 37th day of the Premier League, would have allowed them to hope for the improbable. But Mikel Arteta’s players have never been able to show themselves to be really dangerous. Worse, they even lost against a low ranking team (1-0),

Nottingham Forest is maintained

Keylor Navas, the Nottingham Forest goalkeeper, was applied on the few interventions he had to make in front of Gabriel Jesus (22nd) or Bukayo Saka (61st). But Arsenal’s possession was nothing but fruitless.

And his opponent was ultra-realistic by taking advantage of a hazardous back p from Martin Ödegaard, who gave a counter resulting in the only goal of the meeting, by Taiwo Awoniyi (19th). By this success, the players of Nottingham Forest ensure their maintenance. Their last match, in a week, on the lawn of Crystal Palace will therefore be without challenge. Like that of Arsenal against Wolverhampton, in short.
