As Arsenal prepare to face Manchester City next Monday, manager Arsene Wenger has said that eighty points could decide who wins the Premier League this season.
“It looks to be very tight (at the top of the Premier League),” he said, reports arsenal.com. “We have played 16 games and the top team is on 35 points, so it means that the Premier League could be decided at around 80 points.
"If you look at the results it looks as though the consistency will be the main priority in this league because every week you are surprised by the results. We have really established a good run so for us it’s important to continue that.
“It is a massive game [on Monday]. When we play at home you want to win because we are ambitious and we feel we have the chance to come out in a strong position after Christmas.
“It will be a very tight game because if you look at the numbers since the start of the season, offensively and defensively the numbers are very close. Manchester City has huge individual potential with David Silva and Sergio Aguero coming back and so we will need a top, top-level team performance.”
