The most recent updates on the Premier League title situation include a verdict for Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal as they face the challenge of competing against Manchester City and Liverpool.

Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, received a new assessment of Arsenal’s chances in the Premier League title race after the team bounced back with a victory against Crystal Palace. This win followed three consecutive defeats, including losses to Fulham and West Ham in the Premier League, which significantly impacted their title aspirations. Before their FA Cup exit against Liverpool, Arsenal found themselves three points behind the reigning champions, Manchester City, and five points behind Liverpool.

Fortunately for Arteta and Arsenal, their title concerns were alleviated as they went into halftime with a two-goal lead against Crystal Palace. Gabriel Magalhaes scored early on, and Leandro Trossard added a third goal, with Gabriel Martinelli netting a brace in added time for a convincing 5-0 victory.

The result and the performance were precisely what Arteta desired after the previous three defeats, and two distinct opinions on Arsenal’s title chances have emerged. Paul Merson expressed his earlier belief that Arsenal could win the Premier League, but recent losses highlighted their need for a forward. While Arsenal still has a chance, Merson pointed out the challenge they face, especially with Manchester City potentially embarking on a dominant winning streak.

Martin Keown, on the other hand, remains confident that Arsenal is firmly in the title race, especially after their impressive 5-0 victory. Despite the challenges and the need to avoid errors, some pundits believe that Arsenal can still contend for the Premier League title.
