The 37-year-old, who is currently in the UK to promote his new book, believes Chelsea are effectively out of contention following their disastrous start to the 2015-16 campaign.
He feels Manchester City will go close, but reckons Arsenal will have the edge because of their first-class goalkeeper, who joined from Chelsea in the summer.

“I think Manchester City will be strong, as always in the last few years,” Drogba told Sky Sports. “Unfortunately, Chelsea is too far, so I will go for my friend Petr Cech [at] Arsenal.”
When asked if the Gunners have enough, Drogba responded: “They have Petr Cech.”
Cech was a huge signing for Arsenal
The signing of Cech was a huge coup for Arsenal, who have only conceded 11 Premier League goals this term.
Prior to last weekend they had only conceded nine in the league, but a 2-1 defeat to West Brom added to Cech’s tally of goals conceded and sent Arsenal down a couple of places to fourth spot.
The Gunners, however, are still only two points off league leaders Leicester City and have a real chance of ending their long wait for their first Premier League title since 2004.
What about United and Spurs?
Interestingly, Drogba failed to mention Manchester United. Louis van Gaal’s side have only lost two matches all season and sit one place behind Leicester in second position.
The impressive way Tottenham have started the season also suggests this could be their best opportunity to win their first league title since 1961.
