Pennant believes that “Liverpool are in a better place than Arsenal” in the ongoing title chase – Just Arsenal News

It is becoming increasingly clear to most people that Manchester City and Liverpool are Arsenal’s main title challengers.


The Citizens started well and won all four games.

Liverpool and Arsenal, however, will have to recover after having already lost two points.

They follow the defending champions and wait for them to lose momentum before striking.

Assuming Manchester City drop points, who do you think is stronger than Arsenal and Liverpool to dethrone them at the top of the table? As a Gooner I know you would say Arsenal are and you are right, just as we should respect the opinion of former Premier League player Jermaine Pennant.

Pennant, who has played 12 games for Arsenal and 55 for Liverpool during his long career, says Mikel Arteta’s lack of a clear tactical plan and different tactical approaches so far this season are limiting Arsenal’s potential, unlike at Liverpool, who he believes has a defined tactical system. and have played well and might even be favorites when the two meet (last season Arsenal beat them 3-2 and drew 2-2).“

I think so [Liverpool should mount a title challenge] if you look at the team and the way they play.

Who else around them should challenge? » asked the 38-year-old on talkSPORT.“

At the moment I would say Liverpool are in a better position than Arsenal.

They are currently better than Arsenal in the matches they have played. 100%.

“It’s not because I’m biased; I think at the moment Arteta is still fine-tuning it; He doesn’t know what’s best and tries to please everyone on the team.

You can see it in performances like against Fulham.

“We are going to write off Man United because they are everywhere at the moment.

But I think Liverpool vs Arsenal will be the favorite in this match.

There is no denying that Liverpool are back to their best.

On the other hand, Arsenal improved significantly compared to the previous season.

Declan Rice has added a new element to their game.

In any case, Arteta and the boys must be aware that they must overcome not only Manchester City but also Liverpool to redeem themselves by ending their title drought after coming so close last year.
