The competition to win the English Premier League (EPL) this season is fierce.
Arsenal, who beat Fulham 3-0 in the last 27 rounds, are in first place with 66 points. Manchester City, who defeated Crystal Palace 1-0, are chasing with 61 points. The gap between the two teams is 5 points. Now, the war between the two teams is heading towards its final destination.
The circumstances of the two teams are very different. Arsenal challenged to win the EPL for the first time in 20 years. On the other hand, Man City is a team looking at a third straight EPL victory. The attitude of the two teams towards winning is bound to be different. Arsenal has the desire to win the championship for the first time in 20 years, and Manchester City has the pride to keep the title of the best with three consecutive league titles. 메이저사이트
There is someone who analyzed that ‘in the mental aspect’, earnestness will precede pride. In other words, in terms of spirit, Arsenal are ahead of Manchester City. Surprisingly, it was Man City manager Pep Guardiola who made this claim.
After the match against Crystal Palace, he said, “It has been a long time since Arsenal won the EPL. It doesn’t exist,” he said. This kind of spirit is something that I cannot do as a director.
“Man City’s experience of winning back-to-back titles is useless right now. If experience is important, the former champions will win every next season. Look at Liverpool, who lost to Bournemouth after a huge win. Experience is not important. “What you did in 2008 is a thing of the past. Football is unpredictable. When you’ve won consecutive titles, you take it for granted that you’ll win again, but that’s not true.”
Even if you are pushed from the spirit, you cannot give up winning. Man City are gradually heading towards peak performance. It is a game that can beat the spirit.
“Nobody knows what will happen at the end of the season,” Guardiola said. It is our great strength, and we are also confident that our desire to win this match is second to none.”
