Eliaquim Mangala says Arsenal and Manchester United are title contenders
Arsenal and Manchester United are capable of winning the Premier League title this season, according to Eliaquim Mangala.
The Citizens are three points behind current leaders Chelsea, whilst their derby rivals Manchester United are five points adrift of the defending Premier League champions.
And City centre-half Mangala, who moved to The Etihad from Porto in the summer transfer window, refused to rule Arsenal and United out of the Premier League title race.
“I don’t think it’s just down to two teams. I think a lot of teams can be involved,” Mangala told the Mirror. “Just a few games ago, we were eight or nine points behind Chelsea and we have come right back to be on their heels.
“They are not making a huge amount of noise about it, but certainly United are there in terms of league position and points. They have been winning and are gradually coming back into things.
“And who is to say that Arsenal can’t put a run together and get back in the race for the title as well? We have to focus on getting our own results, and performing well ourselves in order to put pressure on the other teams.”
