Liverpool legend names his Premier League title favorites

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has named his Premier League title favorites after Arsenal and Man City’s losses over the weekend. Meanwhile, the former Liverpool player has predicted Arsenal as the favorite over reigning champions Man City.

Moreover, the Gunners are having a good season and are looking to stay at the top of the league table. Meanwhile, had to face their second defeat of the season on Saturday against Everton.

Sean Dyche’s men defeated league leaders Arsenal in a closely contested game by 1:0. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta failed to extend the lead against the relegation-threatened side at Goodison Park.

On the other hand, Manchester City failed to capitalize on the opportunity to close down the gap with the league leaders. Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur defeated Pep Guardiola’s men (1:0) on Sunday.

Carragher gives his Premier League verdict

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher shared his thoughts on Manchester City’s run in Premier League so far on Sky Sports. He said:

“There’s still a long way to go for the title but you’re almost waiting for Manchester City to kick in and to be the City we know so well. It just feels like this might be the season where they’re not quite themselves, for lots of different reasons. It’s not the City of old.

This idea that they’re going to do what they’ve done to Liverpool a couple of times in the title race, I’m not sure it will happen. It feels like a different City we’re watching right now. There’s so long to go. Neither team should panic. There will be a lot of ups and downs.”

Meanwhile, Carragher backed Arsenal in winning the Premier League. He said:

“But I do think Arsenal have the edge, because they’ve been the most impressive team so far. We’re still waiting to see the real City but it’s not quite happening for them. The upcoming two games between those teams are massive but I fancy Gunners right now.”

Meanwhile, both sides will lock horns against each other in the Premier League on 16th February. So, it remains to be seen if Carragher’s verdict stands true or if Guardiola’s men manage to retain the Premier League title.
