EPL: Mikel Arteta names favourite club to win Premier League


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has named Manchester City as the favourites to win the Premier League title this season.

This is despite the Gunners’ five-point lead over the Citizens in the EPL table.

The Arsenal boss said his team are not yet on the level of the Citizens who have won the title four times.

Arsenal has gathered a massive 50 points after 19 games and seems to be in pole position to win their first league title since 2003/04.

Speaking to The Guardian, Arteta said, “We deserved the points we have. I think we have played well enough to win most of the matches.

“But the reality is we have things we can get better at. That’s the aim,” he said.

“I know where we want to be and we are far from that. I know the levels of the other teams and one especially that has won in the last five or six years [City] and we are not there yet.”

Before Arsenal’s crucial clash against Manchester United on Sunday evening, Manchester City had closed the gap to the Premier League leaders to just two points, hoping the Gunners would drop some points. But Mikel Arteta’s men fought hard to beat Erik ten Hag’s men 3-2 at the Emirates Stadium.
