'Almost like handing them the title': Trent admits Man City worry for Premier League run-in

Trent Alexander-Arnold admitted that Man City are placed better than anyone to make the most out of a two-point lead in the Premier League table with six games to go.

"Arsenal experienced it, we've experienced it two or three times, when you get into a title race with Man City they are borderline perfect," the right-back told Sky Sports.

"You can't slip up or make mistakes. If you give them the upper hand they don't really blink in those moments. They don't seem vulnerable. It's a well-oiled machine.

"That's what they do, they click and there's no stopping them. Giving them this advantage with six games to go is almost like handing them the title. All we can do is hope someone does us a favour and get our goal difference up.

"We've got six games left, it'll fly by. Our aim is to win every game - that's all we can and try to capitalise. It will be difficult but I've seen over the last few weeks of odds and percentage chances of who is going to win the league has fluctuated with just one result. Anything can happen in the Premier League.

"They are a fantastic team with the squad they've got, the manager, it's hard to think they won't win it at this point. Stranger things have happened in the Premier League."

In the 2018/19 and 2021/22 campaigns, Liverpool lost the Premier League title to Man City just by one point.

Now, both Liverpool and Arsenal are chasing City but, to stand a chance to compete for the trophy, they need to overcome their slumps in the very next games to avoid an even bigger gap.
