Gary Lineker has predicted who among Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will win the Premier League title this season.
The Ex-Tottenham Hotspur forward has said that he is sticking to the prediction he made at the start of the season.
So, what did the MOTD presenter Gary Lineker say about the Premier League title this season? Let’s take a look.
Well, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City are the three main teams who are aiming to win the Premier League title this season.
Tottenham Hotspur also appear to be in the race for the title, but two successive defeats before the international break have raised questions about whether the North London club can go all the way.
Manchester City have become the dominant force in English football in recent years, and Liverpool have been their main challengers.
Arsenal re-emerged last season, and Mikel Arteta’s side are going strong at the moment.
Former Tottenham striker and Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker believes that Arsenal will beat Liverpool and City to the title this season.
Linker said on The Rest is Football podcast: “They [Arsenal] are still up there, they are still right in it, so I am going to stick with it [them winning the league].
“Not with a great deal of confidence but I never had that in the first place, but I do think they have the makings of something.
“I think they will be fairly close to it. So I am going to stay with my initial prediction that they will win the league.”
In my opinion, Arsenal could be able to win the Premier League title ahead of Manchester City and Liverpool.
Yes, City are the favourites. Pep Guardiola has arguably the best squad in the Premier League.
But, Arsenal have shown that they are a force to be reckoned with. The North London club have not been at their very best this season, but they are just a point behind leaders City.
We saw last season how close Arsenal went to winning the title. Perhaps if the North London club sign a prolific striker like Ivan Tomney in the January transfer window, then they could get the job done this season.
