EPL: Carragher reveals ‘advantage’ Man Utd, Spurs have over Arsenal in top four race


Sky Sports pundit, Jamie Carragher, has predicted that Arsenal will miss out on a top four spot because they struggle to “win ugly”.

The Gunners saw their 100% start to the Premier League campaign come to an end on Sunday when they were beaten 3-1 by Manchester United at Old Trafford.

While Arsenal are clearly ahead of United under Arteta, the Red Devils have shown their resilience in recent weeks with gritty wins against Leicester and Southampton.

“I’ve been impressed with them [Arsenal], I just don’t know if they’ve got the squad,” Carragher told the Overlap.

“When I watch Tottenham, Manchester United, they’re almost getting results the same sort of way, big, powerful, tough to beat.

“When I watch Arsenal, it’s fast, energetic, I’m excited watching it, but could what happened [against Manchester United] happen too often?

“But the more impressive team, when we talk about how the game is played right now, the technical game and what Liverpool and Man City have done over the last four or five years, I think Arsenal are closer to that than say Tottenham or Man United are.”
