Arsenal, Man City, and Liverpool are all vying for the Premier League championship. But because of three important matches, Danny Murphy has eliminated one team from the competition.

Due to three crucial matchups, former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy has eliminated Arsenal from the Premier League title chase. He thinks Mikel Arteta’s team will lose this weekend’s trip to Brighton, as well as their upcoming matches against Tottenham and Manchester United.

Murphy believes the Gunners will falter despite their home victories over Manchester City and Liverpool as well as their away draws this season. Arsenal, who are also participating in Europe, are currently in second place with eight games remaining, just one point ahead of Manchester City and two behind Liverpool. But the FA Cup will only cause problems for City.

Arsenal would lead the league temporarily if they defeated Brighton, at least until Liverpool plays Manchester United on Sunday. Whatever the outcome, Murphy is relieved to see City in a difficult situation.

Murphy stated on talkSPORT, “This is what we want from a Premier League title race” (as transcribed by the Daily Mirror). “Unless you’re a Man City fan, you probably want someone else to win it.”

He then on, “Last year, for instance, I wanted Arsenal to win it.” “It’s not that I don’t think highly of Man City; of course I do—they’re an incredible squad led by an excellent manager. However, the Premier League needs more competition, and things are getting ding-dong out of hand. The fixtures alone make me doubt that Arsenal will make it across the finish line. They must travel to Brighton, Old Trafford, and Tottenham.”

While Arteta agrees that the three games will be crucial, he is hesitant to downplay Arsenal’s performances at the Emirates. The Spaniard anticipates a challenging assignment against Brighton, though.

“Yes, but also at home,” he replied. “Every game in this league is really tough; we have some important games at home and the Champions League games.

“You see what happened last night [Thursday], when Liverpool struggled, and everyone is just giving it their all to win because the competition is so fierce and Brighton is going to be a really difficult opponent once more. Since we are aware of this, we will make every effort to outperform them and come out on top.”
