Liverpool Benefit As Man City, Arsenal Cancel Each Other Out

March 31, (THEWILL)- Manchester City and Arsenal could not be separated after a cagey 0-0 draw in their crunch English Premier League title clash at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. The result favours Liverpool, who had won earlier to go top, as the thrilling three-way title race continues with a twist.

Billed as a potential decider, the match failed to live up to its billing in a goalless first half as both sides were cautious in their approach. Gabriel Jesus went close against his former club but City had the better openings without converting before the break.

The second period was a more open affair as City cranked up the pressure. Substitute Jérémy Doku missed two great chances before Erling Haaland inexplicably failed to convert from close range. At the other end, Bukayo Saka caused problems with dangerous deliveries into the box.

However, neither side could find a winning goal on an afternoon of few clear-cut opportunities. City extended their unbeaten run to 23 games but Arsenal’s eight-match winning streak in the league came to an end. The Gunners may see it as a point gained in their bid to win a first title since 2004.

The result sets up an enthralling finale to the season. With Liverpool leading the way, City and Arsenal will be hoping to take advantage of any slip-ups from Jurgen Klopp’s side in the remaining weeks.
