Simon Jordan makes Premier League title race prediction

Arsenal have moved to the top of the Premier League after beating Brighton 3-0 at the Amex Stadium on Saturday (6 April). 

It was another thrilling week in the Premier League, and the title race promises to go down to the wire. Manchester City won 4-2 against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, but Liverpool managed a 2-2 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

As a result, the Gunners are tied with the Reds at the top of the table, with Mikel Arteta’s side enjoying a better goal difference.

With seven games left to play, it’s difficult to predict who will clinch the title as there are no clear favourites. City and Liverpool have experience of lifting the trophy under the respective current managers, but Arsenal are showing no signs of weakness at the moment.

The Gunners have made a perfect start in 2024, having won all ten games in the Premier League. Simon Jordan has said on talkSPORT (8 April) that he thinks the Gunners will win the league. The popular football pundit has been advocating for Manchester City to win the league, but it seems he has now changed his mind.

“I think the league will stay at it is. I think what we are seeing at the moment is Arsenal top of the league,” said Jordan.

“I’ve always advocated for Manchester City. I have always believed that Man City would win this league but I am now more inclined to go with Arsenal and the bottom three would be the bottom three.”

Can Arsenal win the Premier League title?

It will be a remarkable achievement if Mikel Arteta can deliver the league title, and the Gunners will be deserved champions if that happens. They have been sensational since the turn of the year.

Arsenal are looking unstoppable, but there could be many twists and turns. They will face Bayern Munich in the Champions League, and the result could affect their league form if they fail to progress further.

They face Tottenham and Manchester United away from home, while Wolves and Aston Villa can provide them a strong challenge. They finish the season against Everton who might be fighting for their lives to stay in the Premier League.

In comparison, Liverpool have a relatively easy run of fixtures and they are expected to win their remaining games at Anfield. Away to Villa Park could be a challenging fixture, though.

The same can be said about Manchester City, although the trip to north London against Spurs could be a tricky fixture.
