first_imgArsenal face a potentially pivotal Barclays Premier League game with Manchester City on Monday night looking to continue a good run of form against their title rivals. A 5-2 win at the King Power Stadium and a swashbuckling display in beating United 3-0 at home should give Wenger and his side plenty of confidence heading into Monday’s game, especially as no-one else has been able to stop Leicester at home. “I always took them seriously but when we won 5-2 over there, nobody took our performance seriously,” he said of their September success at Leicester. “They just thought it was normal that we won at Leicester, but ever since you have been able to see that it was a great result and a great performance on the day.” Wenger has spoken kindly of Leicester’s unexpected rise to the top of the table, which culminated in a 2-1 victory over Chelsea last week and saw Jose Mourinho lose his job with the reigning champions. And the Frenchman believes it is good to see a team belying their financial short-comings when compared to the big spenders in the division. “It’s good for everybody in football all over the world to see teams who are not on the biggest budget at the start, that they can compete as well,” he added. “There’s always a way to be successful when you’re intelligent and competent. Of course that’s very positive and they’ve shown another fantastic performance on Monday night.” While Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes remain in the mix, many still believe Monday’s protagonists are the two sides more likely to be doing battle for the title when it comes to the business end of the season. Press Association The Gunners are right in the title picture and have the chance to dent the challenge of Manuel Pellegrini’s City side when they visit the Emirates Stadium in the last Premier League fixture this side of Christmas. Arsene Wenger has seen his team beat in-form Leicester and comfortably secure three points against Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United – the other two sides occupying the top four places along with Arsenal and City. Wenger agrees but does not consider this meeting as any sort of decider. “I don’t know if they are the number one threat but City are a threat,” he added. “If you look at what they have achieved in the last three or four years, their individual quality, you cannot dismiss them as not being a threat to winning the championship. We are in December, we are not fighting for the Premier League on Monday night.” last_img read more

Niño feast “I think that’s going to be a chip on his shoulder. He has something to prove,” he said. “Back in my time, when he lost to Matthew Wright for the [Heritage MVP] award, I know he felt bad because he also wanted to win and you could see that in our practices. He did get the Finals MVP, but in my mind, Brickman and Wright were co-MVPs.”“So with him not winning the award once more, coupled with Mono’s situation in the Finals, I believe people will really see how good Jason Brickman is,” said Vanguardia.Game 4 is on Monday, still at Stadium 29 in Bangkok.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES READ: Alapag ‘big fan’ of Brickman: ‘One of the smartest point guards I’ve seen’“I coached Jimmy when he was a rookie when we drafted him in Talk ’N Text,” he said. “Jimmy and Jason have similarities, especially with the leadership, ball handling, and they’re tough. Like Jimmy Alapag, you can just give Jason the ball and he knows what decisions to make.”Vanguardia, though, wonders how Brickman, who averaged 10.4 points, 10.3 assists, and 5.9 rebounds this season, was once again snubbed for the Heritage MVP award.“I was surprised why he wasn’t named as the Heritage MVP,” he said, as the award went to Chong Son Kung Fu’s Fil-Am reinforcement Mikh McKinney. “For me, he deserves the award. Brickman was there from the start whereas McKinney came in late. But that’s how the voting went and we can’t do anything about it.”Vanguardia believes that the snub will fuel Brickman’s game, especially with Mono Vampire on the brink of losing the ABL title after Alab took a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five championship series after a 99-93 win in Game 3 on Saturday.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident Scientists seek rare species survivors amid Australia flames Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “You can see that he makes his teammates better,” Vanguardia proudly said. “You know how better Sam Deguara is, but it’s the trust the team is giving him, he’s the leader.
