Football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano believes that the 2023/24 Premier league title would be heavily contended for between Man City and Arsenal.
He also spoke on Tottenham, applauding them for their impressive start but added that they would not be able to hold it for too long.
Speaking on the Daily Briefing, Romano said: “We’re almost a third of the way into the season now, so how is the title race shaping up? We’ve had a bit of a surprise already so far as Tottenham have been hugely impressive, only to stutter a little in their last two games.
“My personal feeling is that it’s looking like Arsenal and Manchester City will be the main teams fighting for the title. Spurs are doing something special, and I want to say congrats to them really, but with injuries to key players like James Maddison it’s very difficult to keep going.
“They’ve been really unlucky with their results in recent days, conceding crucial goals in stoppage time against both Chelsea and Wolves. But overall | see a battle between City and Arsenal.
“We’re maybe yet to see either of them at their very best yet this season, but they have so much quality in both squads, and have coped well despite key injuries, with City having to play without Kevin De Bruyne so far this season, while Arsenal have barely been able to play their strongest XI as Jurrien Timber and Thomas Partey have hardly featured, and others like Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard have missed a lot of games.”
