George Graham: Why Arsenal will beat Man City to Premier League title

George Graham believes Arsenal will pip Manchester City and Manchester United to the Premier League title

George Graham has backed Arsenal to win the Premier League title this season.

The Gunners missed the chance to hoist themselves above leaders Leicester City after an emphatic 4-0 defeat by Southampton at St Mary’s on Boxing Day.

Arsenal will definitely win it this year

The north London side are two points adrift of the Foxes ahead of the visit of promoted side Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.

Former Arsenal manager Graham believes the Gunners are still stronger than Manchester City and Manchester United ahead of their clash against the Cherries.

“The others teams that are fancied are not up to the task,” Graham told talkSPORT.

“Manchester City defensively are poor, Manchester United are having a bad time and Chelsea won’t win it.

“Leicester are top just now, but I think Arsenal will definitely win it this year.

“Southampton were outstanding, both with the ball and without the ball. They were fabulous and were in Arsenal’s faces right from the off.

“They put them under pressure and it was a bad all-round team performance from Arsenal. But I just think, forget it lads, and let’s get back to where what we were doing before the Southampton game.”

The Gunners have lost once in their last four Premier League games following their 4-0 defeat by the Saints at St Mary’s.

Wenger’s side have won 11 of their 18 Premier League games so far this season, racking up 36 points out of a possible 54.
