Arsenal are still realistic favourites for this season's Premier League title, according to former manager George Graham.

Whereas title rivals Manchester City were comprehensively thumped 3-1 last weekend, Arsenal regained some much-needed momentum in the title race by beating Eddie Howe's Bournemouth 2-0.

Arsene Wenger's side still sit five points off Leicester City in first, however, whilst speaking to talkSPORT, Graham revealed he still expects his former club to claim their first title in 12 years this season.

As part of the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Graham said: “Leicester aren’t even hanging in there at the top, they’re up there on merit.

“It’s been fantastic for a club that size and maybe they can win it…but I think it will go right to the wire.

“Arsenal were my tip for the title at the beginning of the season and they still are.

“They’ve still got a great chance. They weren’t at their best against Bournemouth at the weekend, but it was just one of those games where you manage to get the result and say, ‘thank you very much, now onto the next game’.”

Arsenal's next game is likely to be pivotal in shaping this season's title race. Claudio Ranieri's Leicester travel to the Emirates next Sunday in the knowledge that a win would take them a considerable step closer to becoming just the sixth team to win the Premier League.

The Gunners will, however, approach this fixture with confidence following their 5-2 thumping of the league leaders in September, thanks to an Alexis Sanchez hat-trick.
