Former Aston Villa player, Gabriel Agbonlahor has said that Arsenal are bound to loose to Manchester City when both sides meet in their title decider next clash.
He said that the Gunners could get beaten by ‘three or four goals’ by the Citizens following their ’embarrassing’ display in their 3-3 draw with Southampton.
Manuel Santibenez gathered that Agbonlahor believes that Arsenal have well and truly come unstuck in the Premier League title race.
Arsenal have lost their tight grip on the title after draws with Liverpool, West Ham United and most recently Southampton.
They are five points above Manchester City but the defending champions have two games in hands ahead of the Etihad showdown on Wednesday.
Agbonlahor feels that Arsenal do not have the defenders who could attempt to stop Manchester City’s attack with William Saliba injured.
Agbonlahor told talkSPORT, “First of all, the huddle was embarrassing.
“Zinchenko, concentrate on your game. The set piece for the third goal you don’t follow your man and concede.
“That, for a start, was embarrassing.
“For me, Rob Holding is a Championship defender. Not good enough to be third choice at a team who want to win the title.
“Since Saliba has been injured they’ve conceded nine goals in five games – three draws in a row, that’s not championship form.
“I think that Man City will put three or four past this Arsenal team on Wednesday, I really do.
“He’ll play Mahrez or Bernardo Silva on Zinchenko – Haaland will be in the changing room now saying, ‘guys I can’t wait to play against Holding and Gabriel’.”
