EPL: You need plan B against Man City, title race is over – Adams tells Arsenal


Former Arsenal captain, Tony Adams, has told the Gunners that they need to use a Plan B in their crucial title-deciding fixture against Manchester City on Wednesday or suffer the consequences of losing the title.

Arsenal will face Man City in what is being labelled a ‘Premier League final’ tonight at the Etihad Stadium.

Mikel Arteta’s side lie five points ahead of Man City, who have two games in hand.

However, if Pep Guardiola’s side wins on Wednesday night, they will be two points behind with two games in hand.

“When I interviewed Martin Odegaard for TV on Monday, he asked me what advice I would give to Arsenal for Wednesday’s game at Manchester City. My answer was two words: ‘Don’t lose.’ If Arsenal can do that, the title race is still open,” Adams told The Sun.

“If not, it is all over. I would love nothing more than to see a boring 0-0 draw but I can guarantee that is not going to happen because Arsenal only know one way to play — and that is s**t or bust.

“This current team does not have that balance. I don’t think he [Mikel Arteta] has a Plan B, so on Wednesday night, they will go to the Etihad and try to outplay the best team in Europe and probably not be good enough.

“Mikel has modelled everything on what his mate Pep Guardiola has done and, as a result, Arsenal are [Manchester] City Lite. But you can’t win the [Premier League] title by copying a better version because Pep has more resources in his arsenal than Arsenal. They’ve to try something different.”

The kick-off time for the match is 8 pm, Nigerian time.
