Jamie Carragher gives Arsenal 15-year warning after Tottenham incident

Jamie Carragher believes Son Heung-min's decisive miss against Manchester City on Tuesday evening could "haunt" Arsenal supporters for years.

The Gunners, requiring a favour from their North London rivals to keep their Premier League title hopes alive, were left frustrated after City prevailing 2-0 winners courtesy of an Erling Haaland brace.

Things could well have ended differently, however, Spurs spurning a handful of opportunities during proceedings to punish the Sky Blues. The most glaring miss of all was undoubtedly Son's one-on-one, which would have seen the Lilywhites draw level, which saw the forward fire his shot straight into the path of substitute keeper Stefan Ortega.

Arsenal fans will not have believed their eyes after watching this effort on goal, with the South Korean the player most would have backed to convert this chance in such a position.

Of the opinion this miss will live long in the memory of the Gunners, for all the wrong reasons, Carragher told Sky Sports: “I actually think it will make it worse for Arsenal fans. If City had won this two or three nil and Tottenham hadn’t had a go and City were two up after half an hour, you could take your frustration out on Tottenham.

"You can’t take your frustration out on Tottenham because they had the chances and should have got something from the game. As an Arsenal fan, it’s an extra punch to the ribs. I’m seeing this Son chance again and I can’t believe that. That moment there is the title going from Arsenal to Manchester City."

Also left in disbelief by this moment, Gary Neville added: "The right man [Son] is there. You always need your goalkeeper in a title run-in to produce a performance and make a save. He is an outstanding No.2, it was an unbelievable moment when Son went through.

"I don’t think they [Arsenal] could feel annoyed by the effort of the Tottenham team and the ability of the Tottenham team. That was a fantastic performance. City couldn’t get the ball off them. Arsenal cannot have any complaints and Mikel Arteta won’t have any complaints about how Ange Postecoglou and his men have approached this game and gone about their business."

Drawing parallels with Son's wasted shot and a similar moment involving Leicester City's Kelechi Iheanacho when Liverpool were holding out for a Leicester City result against Guardiola's side in 2019, Carragher added: "The fact we gave Ortega Man of the Match, he has - on tonight alone - won them the Premier League title.

"When you look at this game, this wasn’t about the goal from Haaland or the assist from De Bruyne, if he doesn’t make those saves at 1-0, Arsenal will win the league. When I think of me a few years ago as a Liverpool fan watching Vincent Kompany put that shot in against Leicester, that is that moment Arsenal fans will remember in five, ten, 15 years’ time. Even if they win a Premier League title in the next five or six years, that chance will still haunt them."
