Supercomputer reveals why Arsenal MUST beat Man City in crunch Premier League title decider | The Sun

THREE draws in three games means Arsenal's trip to Manchester City is a do or die encounter.

A supercomputer has calculated both teams' chances of winning the title based on the three possible results from Wednesday's crunch clash.

Arsenal fans are already well aware of it, but a loss would effectively put an end to their title charge.

Defeat at the Etihad would leave the Gunners with a lowly nine per cent chance of winning the Premier League, according to Opta.

Even a point at the Etihad makes City strong favourites for the trophy.

If the game does end all square, Pep Guardiola's side will have a 72 per cent chance of lifting the title.

But a win for the Gunners would put them in the driving seat to win the Prem for the first time since the 2004 Invincibles.

However, Opta have given Arsenal just a 15 per cent chance of taking all three points back to North London.

In a huge blow for boss Mikel Arteta, key defender William Saliba is again set to miss out through injury.

There are even fears the French defender could be out for the remainder of the season.
