Harry Redknapp makes prediction where Arsenal and Man City will end up in title race

Harry Redknapp makes prediction where Arsenal and Man City will end up in title race

Despite the Gunners’ lead at the top of the table, Harry Redknapp believes Manchester City will win the Premier League this season.

The team led by Mikel Arteta is currently five points ahead of Manchester City with a game in hand.

However, they dropped their second game of the season last weekend, losing 1-0 at Everton.

Pep Guardiola’s men were defeated 1-0 by Tottenham the following day, failing to capitalize on Manchester City’s error.

Former Spurs manager Redknapp has been extremely impressed by Arsenal’s play this season, but he still believes Manchester City has what it takes to chase them down and defend their title.

Speaking on the Mennie Talks podcast, Redknapp said: “Arsenal are playing fantastic football. The football they’re playing and the team just looks so well balanced.

“Two great wingers in [Bukayo] Saka and [Gabriel] Martinelli, they’re strong in midfield – [Martin] Odegaard looks a real player, I love the way he plays, he’s just class. And they look solid at the back, Ramsdale is good.

“I don’t know though, I’ve still got a feeling Man City are going to win it, I think they’re going to come with a rally and pip Arsenal. But it will be tight.

“Arsenal are going to take some catching, but the one team you don’t want chasing you down is Man City! “If it was anyone else chasing them I’d say, ‘yeah fine’, but Man City are so dangerous. Just look at their bench.

“[Ruben] Dias and [Phil] Foden haven’t been getting a game and they would walk into any other team in the Premier League.

“The changes Pep Guardiola can make all over the pitch is just ridiculous. Whereas I think if Arsenal get a couple of injuries it will be a big problem for them.”

Arsenal will look to rebound from their loss to Everton on Saturday afternoon when they host Brentford at The Emirates. On Sunday, Manchester City will host Aston Villa at The Etihad.

Former Bolton Wanderers star Jay-Jay Okocha believes Arsenal has what it takes to win the Premier League title this year, but he cautions that their upcoming matchups with Manchester City could have a decisive effect on the title race.

“Manchester City is surprisingly losing a lot of games this season for [their] standards,” said Okocha. “Arsenal are consistently good, I assume the defeat at Everton was just a slip-up recently.

“I trust Arsenal to become champions, but for that [they have] to do well in both duels against Man City.”
