It was a fascinating match for Arsene Wenger and his charges as they beat fellow title contenders Man City 2-1 at the Emirates before 60,000 Arsenal supporters to prove that they are a threat in winning the Premier league.Goals from Theo Walcott and Oliver Giroud assisted by Mesut Ozil who took his assist tally to 15 this season were enough to see Arsenal cruise past Manchester City. Although, Yaya Toure’s put one past Cech, It was not enough to stop the gunners, who gunned their way to victory to move second on the table, two points behind league leaders, Leicester City.
While the Arsenal Camp will be in ecstasy, rejoicing at their recent form coupled with the job safety of their manager, the same cannot be said for Man City, especially for Manuel Pellegrini, whose job has been taunted as the next destination for the most sought after coach in Europe, Pep Guardiola.
With the mauling of City against an Arsenal side who did not field in some of their stars such as Santi Cazorla, Alexis Sanchez and Francis Coquelin, Manchester City coach, Pellegrini knows that his time in city is numbered, if not over. While City might bounce back as they normally do, it might be enough to save Pellegrini his job as he currently seats in the hottest seat.Another manager who would be feeling the pressure and heat since the sacking of Jose Mourinho is Louis Van Gaal, whose position as Manchester United manager has been threatened since Mourinho showed interest plus the fact that his tactics are said to have weakened Man United who recently were sent packing from the UEFA Champions League.
At the moment, the only manager who seems comfortable is Arsene Wenger whose job security has just been soldered solid following Arsenals recent success both at home and abroad. Wenger would be hoping to end his donkey years of Premier League trophy drought at the end of this season.
Next season in the English Premier League promises to be more fascinating as attention may shift from players to coaches. This is because the likes of the world’s best coaches will be gracing the stage in the Barclays Premier League.
Below are the possible transfer list of top coaches.
Diego Simeone- From Athletico Madrid to Chelsea
