Carl Jenkinson has declared that Arsenal have to beat Manchester City if the Gunners are “realistically” going to have any chance of winning the Premier League title.

The Gunners, who have led for a large part of the season, are currently in fourth place and six points behind leaders Chelsea ahead of their clash against the Citizens at The Emirates on Saturday.

The team spirit is very good, there’s no reason why we can’t go out and beat Man City

Arsenal suffered humiliating losses at City, Chelsea and Liverpool earlier this season, whilst the Gunners have only managed to beat Brendan Rodgers’s men at Emirates Stadium.

And Gunners youngster Jenkinson acknowledged Arsene Wenger’s men have to secure three points against favourites City if they are to have any chance of securing their first Premier League title since 2004.

“If we’re being realistic, although it’s not mathematically our last chance, if we’re going to win the league these are games we need to win,” Jenkinson told talkSport.

“We haven’t won enough big games this season. What better time to start than against Manchester City.

“It’s a massive game. After the last two results you would expect us to be deflated and lacking confidence, but I can tell you it’s not like that.

“We’re disappointed but we’re still the confident, happy group we have been all season. The team spirit is very good, there’s no reason why we can’t go out and beat Man City.”
