In a prediction that may leave Manchester City fans scratching their heads, a footballing legend has made a bold claim that Arsenal and Manchester United will run riot in the Premier League this season.
In a campaign that will live long in the memory, last year, ‘The Cityzens’ dominated the world of football. Under the guidance of Pep Guardiola, the side won a historic treble featuring their first-ever Champions League. However, according to Mikaël Silvestre, it won’t be enough to fend off their rivals, who are striving for glory.
While last season ‘The Gunners’ folded under the pressure, with a newfound level of experience, the former defender is confident that they now have the minerals to get the job done.
Speaking exclusively to bettingexpert, Silvestre said: “Arsenal will finish first. Second, Manchester United, third is Manchester City, and fourth will be Liverpool.
“The fact that Arsenal were challenging last season was a surprise to everyone and even to themselves.
“Now that they’ve done that with consistency, being in the first spot for so long, they clearly are title challengers this season.
“They’ll go for it, and they should.“
And while people may scoff at the idea of United bagging second, having made a whopping 361 appearances for the club, Silvestre undeniably knows what his old side is capable of. Therefore, we have to listen to his expertise with an open mind.
