Ex-Arsenal defender reveals Man City love for Joe Allen after late Liverpool drama

Manchester City right-back Bacary Sagna has revealed how he and his teammates delighted in Arsenal‘s late capitulation against Liverpool in midweek.

The Gunners had finally taken the lead in a Premier League thriller—one of the games of the season so far—and were leading until the death, when Joe Allen grabbed an 89th-minute equaliser.

The Welshman’s effort sent Jurgen Klopp into delirium and threw the Kopp into a fierce celebration, although it certainly left Arsenal deflated, with the three points so close to Arsene Wenger’s grasp.

Arsenal remain top after the draw, but they’ve been caught up by Leicester City, who beat fourth-placed Tottenham, with Manchester City still on third—three points behind the leaders.

However, could the Gunners’ late slip allow the Citizens to take the initiative in the title race once again?

Former Arsenal defender Sagna certainly thinks so, as he admitted to the Mirror: ” If Arsenal were five points ahead of us, it’d be very difficult to catch them. Liverpool managed to come back and, at the end of the day, we’re still three points behind.”

The right-back proceeded to reveal that the Citizens cheered in their dressing room as Allen—the new hero of the City players—pegged the Gunners back.
