Robin van Persie hits out at Manchester City and Chelsea for underestimating them – EPL news
Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has hit out at his rivals Manchester City and Chelsea for underestimating the Gunners at the start of the ongoing 2010-11 season.
The Dutch striker labelled Chelsea and Manchester United as ‘big mouths’ and claims that Arsenal’s impressive performance in the season would have opened their rivals’ eyes.
Van Persie said, “I still strongly believe in my club's philosophy. A club like Manchester City change their philosophy every year and Chelsea spent about €80 million [£70m] this season ... two clubs who had a big mouth before the season, thinking that Arsenal
wouldn't play a role in the title race but we are still ahead of them.”
Manchester City, who have already spent over £2 billion building their new star-studded squad, are currently placed fourth in the Premier League standings with 53 points to their name out of 30 games. They are five points behind second placed Arsenal. Roberto
Mancini’s men have been completely ruled out of the title race after their recent 2-0 defeat against, which has put them 10 points behind League leaders Manchester United.
On the other hand, Chelsea, who broke all the previous records to sign for £70 million, still have an outside chance of retaining the Premier League title.
The Blues’ recent wins over Manchester United and Manchester City have put them in the third place in the League table, with 54 points to their credit out of 29 games. Even though Carlo Ancelotti’s men are 9 points behind United, they still have a game in
hand and also have to play Sir Alex Ferguson’s team at Old Trafford later in the season.
However, Arsenal are the only potential contenders to rival Sir Alex Ferguson’s team for the Premier League title. The Gunners’ are strongly positioned at second place in the table, only five points behind United with a game in hand., who has been in prime form for Arsenal in the ongoing season, has urged his players to put aside the cup defeats and concentrate on ending the trophy drought by winning the Premier League title.
The Gunners are yet to play Manchester United in the Premier League at Emirates and Persie feels that the title race would solely be decided after that fixture, which is why he wants his teammates to give their best performance in the rest of the matches.
