Cape Town - According to the BBC Sport website, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has offered his congratulations to Manchester City and says it will be a "miracle" if they do not win the Premier League title.

Leaders City are likely to only need a draw against West Ham at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday to be crowned champions ahead of second-placed Liverpool.

"It's been a very interesting title race. You feel Liverpool were very unlucky because they had a fantastic second half of the season," says the Frenchman.

Arsenal need to match Manchester City and Liverpool's attacking power if they are to challenge the pair in next season's Premier League title race, Wenger continued.

Leaders City are seven points clear of Wenger's fourth-placed side.

But things could have been very different for the Gunners. Perhaps these figures illustrate why certain teams may feel aggrieved. But as the cliche says, the league table does not lie, and Arsenal were unfortunately unable to hold onto first spot.
