Jamie Carragher tips Arsenal to challenge Chelsea for the title
Jamie Carragher delivers his verdict on which teams are still left in the Premier League title race this season
Jamie Carragher believes that Arsenal are one of four teams capable of catching Chelsea in the race for the Premier League title this season.
Chelsea further extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to seven points last weekend as they secured a 3-0 victory over defending champions Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday night.
Manchester United and Liverpool lost ground on the Blues after the two local rivals played out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Arsenal, meanwhile, were 4-0 winners at Swansea City on Saturday afternoon as Arsene Wenger’s men returned to winning ways following their 3-3 draw with Bournemouth.
Arsenal are currently fourth in the table, behind Liverpool, Tottenham and leaders Chelsea.
And Carragher feels that those four teams are the only sides capable of winning the top-flight title this term.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Carragher said: “I think four (teams can win it). I don’t think the Manchester clubs can.
“I think two or three games into the season we felt they were the two who would battle for the league.
“They’re 10 and 12 points behind. City have still got to go to Chelsea. Goal difference is almost double for Chelsea, which is an extra point, so I only see Arsenal and above who can win the title.”
Chelsea are currently the firm favourites to win the title following their sparkling form under Antonio Conte.
