Arsenal’s hopes of winning the Premier League title have slipped away, leaving fans wondering where it all went wrong. The team had an eight-point lead over Manchester City, but it has now turned into a four-point deficit, making it unlikely that they will win their first league title since 2004. Despite some positive performances from players like Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, and William Saliba, there are concerns that this may have been Arsenal’s best chance to win the title, with Liverpool faltering and Manchester United and Chelsea building for the future. The team’s stumble came just when everything was looking positive, with a 3-1 defeat to City at the Emirates in February followed by seven consecutive wins and their biggest lead of the season. However, a trip to Anfield highlighted the first moment fans may be left ruing, with Granit Xhaka’s petulance costing them three points. Another crucial moment was when Saliba went off injured in Europa League defeat to Sporting Lisbon, leaving the team vulnerable to balls down the channels. Leadership was also questioned, with some suggesting that Oleksandr Zinchenko’s passion was too much and undermined Odegaard’s leadership. However, the key moment was when Bukayo Saka missed a penalty against West Ham, allowing the Hammers to score and shift the momentum of the game. Despite keeping the title race going for as long as they did, Arsenal’s hopes of winning the Premier League title have now faded away.
