Kyle Walker fires warning to Arsenal over ‘twists & turns’ in Premier League title race

Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker has sent a warning to Premier League leaders Arsenal over ‘twists and turns’ in this season title race.

Man City lost 1-0 to Tottenham on Sunday to miss a huge chance to cut Arsenal’s lead at the top after the Gunners were beaten at Everton on Saturday.

Those results mean Mikel Arteta’s side remain five points clear of Pep Guardiola’s City with a game in hand.

But City have won four of the five Premier League titles and Walker has told Arsenal that there could be twists to come before the end of the campaign.

‘Of course it is [a missed opportunity],’ England international Walker told Sky Sports after his team’s defeat at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

‘They dropped points and we needed to pick up points to close the gap, but there is still a lot of football to be played. ‘I have been here many, many years in the Premier League and I know the twists and turns that can happen.

‘I know what this team is about. I know what this team can do. We can go on runs from now until the end of the season and it’s just about us doing that really.’

Walker also played down questions over Erling Haaland with some suggesting that City play better when the forward is not in the team, despite the fact that he has scored 25 goals in 20 games in the Premier League this season.

‘It’s a process – he’s come to Manchester City and it’s a difficult team to fit into as the manager demands so much and the way we play,’ Walker added. ‘It’s unique.

‘All of sudden now when we don’t win and he doesn’t score, they say ‘is it the problem, do we play better without him?’ I hear it all the time.

‘But no-one is complaining when he’s scored his 25th goal of the season. This is the team we’ve got now until the end of the season. We’ll fight until the end.’
