Manchester City Legend Explains Why Arsenal Won't Win the EPL This Season
- Arsenal currently sit a point behind leaders Man City after an impressive run
- However, Richard Dunne does not see them challenging City for the EPL title
- The former City skipper contends only Liverpool have what it takes to rival his former side
Manchester City icon Richard Dunne has explained why he believes Arsenal do not stand a chance of winning the Premier League title this season.
The Gunners have not tasted Premier League glory for close to two decades now, with their last triumph coming back in 2004 under Arsene Wenger.
The Mikel Arteta-tutored side came close to ending the long wait to win the crown last season after an impressive run of form but fell short in that attempt in the closing stages of the campaign.
The Emirates-based outfit have shown a clear intent to give the title push another try this season, and currently sit at the top of the standings with 30 points.
Only a point is separating Arsenal at the top and second-placed Manchester City, who are keen to defend the trophy for the fourth consecutive season.
Dunne backs Liverpool to challenge City
Despite the north Londoners' otherwise impressive run of results so far this season, Dunne does not see them winning the EPL title.
Speaking to Betway, the former City captain claimed that only Liverpool have what it takes to challenge his former side for the crown.
"City and Liverpool will be up there," Dunne said when asked about the title race via Metro UK.
"I’m still not sure about Arsenal and if they can compete in all the different competitions. Is their squad big enough?
"People have already spoken about their lack of a centre forward. They’ve created their own problems in the goalkeeping department, which now seems to be a big issue," he continued.
