It was Manchester City who finally laughed in the 2022-23 Premier League championship race that unfolded fiercely until the end. Arsenal, who continued their relentless pursuit, eventually bowed their heads with two consecutive defeats in the league. Manchester City recently won their third consecutive league title and their ninth league title in their career.
Arsenal knelt 0-1 in the 37th round메이저사이트 of the 2022-23 Premier League against Nottingham Forest held at the Nottingham The City Ground on the 21st (Korean time). Nottingham, who had been pursued by the relegation zone in 16th place before the game, laughed until the end, defending Taiwo Awonii’s opening goal in the 19th minute of the first half. On the other hand, Arsenal was in 2nd place, 4 points behind Man City before the game, but as a result of this day, they confirmed 2nd place in the league regardless of the remaining schedule.
The goals of both teams were clear. 16th-placed home side Nottingham fight to widen the gap in the relegation zone, while second-placed away side Arsenal chase down the lead. It was the away team that hit from the start, but it was the home team that didn’t miss a mistake.
In the 19th minute of the first half, Nottingham’s Morgan Gibbs-White intercepted Arsenal’s Martin Odegaard’s pass miss and launched a counterattack. Gibbs-White connected to Ourniy, who was infiltrating. Awonii shook the net neatly.
Arsenal tried to reply with Leandro Trossart’s volley, but it went wide of the net. Gabriel Jesus’ mid-range shot that followed immediately went wide. Shortly before halftime, Trossat once again attempted a volley from outside the box from a corner kick, but this time the ball went high.
In the second half, Arsenal tried to equalize with Sakawa Jesus at the fore. However, it rarely came together, and all the difficultly connected shots were blocked by goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

Rather, Arsenal once again gave Gibbs-White a crisis. In the 21st minute of the second half, Ben White could not properly control Thomas Partey’s back pass, and Gibbs-White intercepted it and attempted a shot inside the box. The ball went into the side net.
Even after that, Arsenal seldom succeeded in attacking. 7 minutes of added time, but Arsenal’s attack was broken by Navas.
With this victory, Nottingham recorded 37 points (9 wins, 10 draws, 18 losses), widening the gap with the relegation zone to 6 points. Home fans turned mufflers and cheered loudly.
On the other hand, Arsenal are still 4 points behind Man City with 2 consecutive league losses and 1 remaining game left.

It is the championship for the last three seasons in a row, and it is the ninth in the career. At the same time, it left its name as the second club after Manchester United to succeed in winning three league titles in a row.
