After breaking their losing streak at Old Trafford against Manchester United on Sunday, Arsenal with 1-0 maintained their hopes of winning the Premier League title, regaining the top spot and extending the championship race to the last weekend, reports AFP.

On the 20th minute, Arsenal defeated United away for just the second time in their previous 17 games, thanks to a goal from Leandro Trossard, which gave them a one-point lead at the top.

With two games remaining to Arsenal’s one, Manchester City still has the ability to decide the title.

Nonetheless, in front of their challenging trip to Tottenham on Tuesday, the Gunners continued to put pressure on Pep Guardiola’s team.

On the last Sunday of the season, Arsenal will play Everton while City will play West Ham.

United’s chances of participating in Europe the next season were further damaged by the defeat.

Though they were more resilient than in their crushing 4-0 loss to Crystal Palace on Monday, Erik ten Hag’s team has now only triumphed once in their last eight Premier League games.

United, who plays Newcastle on Wednesday, is currently three points behind both Newcastle and Chelsea in the standings.

In 2024, Arsenal has been playing exceptionally well to maintain their chances of winning the league for the first time in 20 years.

Since the start of the season, Arteta’s team has won 15 and drawn 1 of their 17 league games.
