Title race over, says ex-Arsenal captain Vieira after Gunners loss


Former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira has declared the Premier League title race done and dusted.

Vieira asserted this after the Gunners were thrashed 3-0 by Brighton on Sunday.

AF24NEWS reports that Manchester City had earlier on Sunday gone four points clear with a 3-0 win at Everton.

According to Vieira, that lead is now unassailable.


“I’m really sorry to say that [the title race is over]. I think it will be impossible to see City let it go now.


“It was a must-win game for Arsenal. They had a lack of energy and it looked like City’s result [against Everton] killed their legs,” Vieira said.

City now need three points from their last three fixtures to be crowned champions for the third successive year.
