Neil Ruddock claims he’ll have to ‘leave London’ if Arsenal win the Premier League title
Manchester City have been told to pull themselves together and stop Arsenal from winning the title by former Tottenham and West Ham player Neil Ruddock.
The ex-defender, 54, joked that he would have to leave London altogether if the Gunners swooped to their first Premier League title in almost two decades.
Mikel Arteta’s side have built up a five-point lead over City in a fine run to the crown, with 12 games to go including a trip to the Etihad Stadium.
“Pep [Guardiola], [Kevin] De Bruyne, please get yourselves together, speak to each other,” he told talkSPORT. “Talk, don’t hold it all in, speak to each other, Pep – I need you – I need Man City. I’ve never needed Man City in my life, but I need them now.
“Don’t let Arsenal win the championship. Don’t let them win the Premier League, please! I’ll have to move!
“Listen Pep, you’re not only letting Man City down, you’re not only letting Man City’s fans down, you are letting every team in London down except Arsenal!
“Arsenal fans think they invented football, no they didn’t! Pep, De Bruyne, please talk.”
