How many points do Arsenal need to win the Premier League following their draw with Southampton?



Arsenal ‘s chances of being named Premier League champions in 2022/23 have taken a major damage after a 3-3 draw with Southampton on Friday night.

The Premier League title battle is still technically in Arsenal’s hands, but only after a 3-3 draw with Southampton on Friday night.

The Gunners had lost two-goal leads in recent weeks, but despite saving a point after trailing 3-1 into the 90th minute, the reaction from Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, and Gabriel Jesus told its own narrative when the final whistle blew.

The reality is that Arsenal passed up a golden opportunity to capitalize on Manchester City’s absence from Premier League action this weekend by establishing a seven-point lead at the top of the table and putting pressure on Pep Guardiola’s side when the two teams meet at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.

However, Arsenal’s fortunes have deteriorated since their win against Leeds United during the international break, despite the fact that they have not lost a single game. However, the 2-2 draws against Liverpool and West Ham United after leading 2-0, as well as the six-goal thriller versus Southampton at home, may be expensive on May 28.

Guardiola’s team can reach 94 points if they win all eight of their remaining games, and with the Gunners visiting the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, this scenario will see them take the Premier League trophy for the third season in a row.

With that stated, while it is in City’s hands, it is also almost in Arsenal’s. With six games remaining, the current league leaders’ maximum point total is 93, but they must overcome Man City and remain unbeaten until the last day of the season against Wolves.

Of course, the game at Etihad isn’t a championship decider because the north London club is guaranteed to end the night on top of the standings, but the dynamics will shift if Arteta manages to oversee a Gunners victory against City in the Premier League for the first time since December 2015.

City can only get 91 points if they lose, while they can reach 92 points if they draw. As a result, assuming Arsenal avoids defeat in Manchester, their new goal of becoming Premier League champions is 92 or 93 points, depending on the results of the top two games.
