Arsenal legend Robert Pires expects Arsenal to win the Premier League title this season because Manchester City will be focused on winning the Champions League.
Pires told MyBettingSites: “First of all, it’s about Arsenal continuing this run and rewarding themselves with the title.
“They really deserve it. Arsenal would be a fantastic champion. But they need to be able to deal with any minor setback quickly and get right back on the winning track the following game so as not to doubt themselves.
“Now we have to deliver in this final spurt of the season. It will be anything but easy to stay on top until the end because the pressure will be immense and Manchester City are more experienced to handle the pressure.
“Nevertheless, I think Arsenal have a good chance of defending their lead until the end, also because City will put everything on the line to finally win the Champions League.”
