Manchester City’s Rodri may have unknowingly advised Arsenal what they needed to do to win the Premier League.

Arsenal head to Manchester to face Manchester City on Sunday, in a game that will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the title race. Arsenal leads the Premier League with 64 points; above Liverpool on goal difference. Manchester City, with 63 points, are third with 10 games remaining.

As a result, whoever wins the match between Manchester City and Arsenal will have a significant advantage in the title battle.

Rodri on how to win the league

Rodri believes it is critical to defeat Arsenal (the Gunners should also be aware of the importance of defeating the Cityzens), and has intimated that for a team vying for glory, each of the last ten league games is a final, with even a single loss having the potential to deny a team the league title.

Manchester City won the league with 89 points last season, but the Spanish midfielder believes that will not be enough this season; the team that wins must overcome the 90-point deficit.

“It’s not just this game that’s like a final; it’s all of them from now until the end of the season,” Rodri said via the Mirror.

“We’re still in every competition, but any game that you lose can practically leave you out of the running.

“That’s the level that this league demands from you—to reach between 90 and 100 points to be able to win the league. We’re fighting for titles, and in this league, a draw is almost like a loss due to how high the bar is.

“So we have to win practically every game, and that starts against Arsenal, who are currently the league leaders.”

Rodri joined Manchester City in 2019 and has helped the club win three consecutive league titles in 2020–21, 2021–22, and 2022–23 as part of the ‘famous treble’. He for sure understands what it takes to win silverware.

From his statements, it’s clear what Arsenal have to do to win the league. It’s a difficult task, but Mikel Arteta’s men are more than capable of continuing their excellent winning run and getting a positive result at the Etihad.
