After watching his former side Arsenal draw 2-2 with Manchester City at the Emirates, former Arsenal defender Martin Keown believes leaders Chelsea and second-placed team Tottenham have a better balance compared to Arsenal and Manchester City.
Keown believes Chelsea and Tottenham have a good balance between attacking and defending compared to Arsenal and Manchester City.
“If Guardiola is going to win this league, City need to stop giving away cheap goals,” Keown wrote in his Daily Mail column.
“Chelsea and Tottenham are the sides with the best balance — and they occupy the top two places in the table.
“Both Arsenal and Manchester City have an achilles heel defensively.
“Pep Guardiola has said that he is ‘not a coach for the tackles’ while Arsene Wenger’s philosophy is to attack.
“There were mistakes which led to all four goals at the Emirates.”
