Arsenal & Chelsea should forget title, says Spurs star

Published Add your comment

Arsenal and Chelsea have are great teams but they should think again if they believe they are going to win the Premier League title because Manchester City will wrap it up.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson says he has been impressed with the Gunners and the Blues, but believe Manuel Pellegrini's side are nailed on to reclaim the title they lost to local rivals Manchester City last season.

"If I were to guess, I think City would be favourites for it,” he is quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard.

“The other two clubs have fantastic squads and fantastic teams but I think with the experience and the players they’ve got, City will be the side who edge it out of those three.”

Manchester City welcome Chelsea to the Etihad stadium on Monday night in what is set to be an influential game in the title race, though both clubs trail Spurs' local rivals Arsenal, who are having a surprisingly good season so far.

Sigurdsson has seen first hand what Manchester City can do as he was in the starting XI when Spurs were hammered 5-1 at White Hart Lane last week, in what was a formidable statement of their title credentials.

Meanwhile, Tottenham's own hopes of a top four spot at the end of the season took a blow a when they could only salvage a draw away against Hull City, though Liverpool's draw with West Brom on Sunday and Manchester United's miserable defeat at Stoke City the day before emant the damage was not nearly as bad as it could have been.
