Arsene Wenger has warned Arsenal that club is unlikely to get a better chance to end their almost 20-year wait for the Premier League title.
The Gunners have not been crowned champions of England since Wenger’s Invincibles.
The jitters have begun to set in this season, however, with five points dropped against Everton and Brentford in each of the long-time pacesetters’ last two matches.
Indeed, City can regain top spot with a win against Arsenal in Wednesday’s summit meeting and Wenger fears his old club will regret not capitalising on their incredible start to the campaign given how their traditional rivals are likely to come back fighting next term.
He told beIN Sport: You win it when you can win it and you don’t care too much about the rest you take the title and let the rest talk about it.
‘I agree the conditions next season won’t be as favourable as they are now so lets not miss this opportunity. Arsenal has 51 points after 21 games which is remarkable.
‘I feel the usual threats are all out of the race. The only threat is City and even City is no not as dominant as they were last year or two years before and I feel since the start of the season City was more vulnerable defensively than before.’
