Trevor Sinclair says the Premier League is a two-horse race between Arsenal and Manchester City

Wenger Mourinho

The pundit has backed Manchester City and Arsenal - and didn't even mention Chelsea, despite talking them up before the start of the league campaign...

Speaking before today's game between Jose Mourinho's men and West Brom, BBC pundit Trevor Sinclair has suggested the Premier League title race is a two-horse race between Manchester City and Arsenal - not Chelsea.

Now, let's look back at Sinclair's predictions at the start of the season...

Acting in his defence, he did tip Arsenal for the title from the start, according to BBC Sport. But he also predicted Chelsea to finish second. Is he really changing his prediction based on two games!?

The meltdown surrounding Chelsea's form has been laughable. Yes, they have struggled - but any side playing Swansea City in that form followed by Manchester City would have less points than if they were up against Sunderland or even Southampton in their current form.

Manchester City obviously look strong but Chelsea have just signed Pedro - who shone against the Baggies - and to change a prediction based on 38 games after just two suggests pundits aren't being pundits. By definition, someone paid to give their views is not doing their job if they change that very view every week.

Everyone has obviously already forgotten that Arsenal lost to struggling West Ham United on the opening day - and these same pundits will be raving about Chelsea, claiming they never doubted them in about a month.

Sinclair may well be right, of course, but if you suggest every possible outcome, eventually you will be...
