Arsenal hero Ray Parlor delighted with ‘incredible’ Tottenham win as he opens Man City title race against Liverpool in Premier League


Arsenal legend Ray Parlor admitted he was happy to see Tottenham beat Man City this weekend as they opened the title race.

Spurs shocked City at the Etihad on Saturday with a 3-2 victory thanks to two goals from Harry Kane.

With Liverpool beating Norwich, he reduced the gap at the top of the table to just six points, with Jurgen Klopp’s side crucially having a game in hand.

Parlor admitted Conte’s side delivered the weekend’s performance.

“I don’t think anyone gave them a chance to get anything,” Parlor told talkSPORT.

“To score three away goals at Man City was unbelievable. It was the performance of the weekend.

“I know Watford won and it was a good result, Burnley going to Brighton, but it has to be said that Spurs go to Man City.

“I’m happy, in a way, because I want the title race to continue. The further it goes, the more Man City keep winning and you think Liverpool are going to clinch.

“Suddenly it’s going to be really interesting. This Liverpool game against Man City in April could be the crucial game.

All eyes will be on this clash between the two sides on April 9 at the Etihad and Parlor sees it go down to the wire.

He added: “It’s definitely back. I don’t think Liverpool would have given up anyway. As we saw in this weekend’s results, all you can keep doing is winning. your games and I hope you get a result like Spurs.

“The players [at Liverpool] are very experienced and will say “let’s try to get every point on the board and put pressure on the opponent”.

“That’s what they did. At one point Norwich went 1-0 against Liverpool and you thought it could definitely be over.

“You know, with Liverpool’s attacking ability, they are always going to score goals.

“Man City will definitely be slight favorites but you can’t undo Liverpool because they’ve been there and done it.

“It should be a great end to the season. You have to watch this April 9 game. This will be the big game.

“If Man City can win this and keep winning games until then, it should end the title.”
