Former Arsenal and Manchester City right-back, Bacary Sagna, has said that Arsenal and not Liverpool, would be Manchester City’s biggest Premier League title challengers this season.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool fought until the last minute before giving up their Premier League title chase last season.
Liverpool finished one point behind Pep Guardiola’s side last season but have started the 2022-23 season underwhelmingly.
The Reds have won just two of their opening six matches, and the former Arsenal and City star cannot see the Reds challenging for the title.
Mikel Arteta’s men came fifth last season in the Premier League table but started the new season with five wins before their defeat to Erik ten Hag’s Red Devils on Sunday.
“I feel Arsenal can be the main competition to Man City for the Premier League title,” the fomer France international said.
“I don’t see any other team that can challenge them. Of course, you can’t totally rule out Liverpool, but they have lost Sadio Mane and don’t look the same without him.
‘With Arsenal having made a great start, it feels like they could be the main contenders to compete with this incredible Manchester City side for the Premier League title.”
