John Barnes predicts who will win Premier League title

Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United and perhaps even Tottenham Hotspur are in the Premier League title race this season.

Former Liverpool and Newcastle United winger John Barnes predicted on the Matchday Live with Fletch & Sav show on BT Sport 1 on Saturday morning that Arsenal will win the Premier League title this season.

“Arsenal,” said Barnes when asked who he thinks will win the league title this season. “I think this is Arsenal's best chance. I feel that Manchester City have a bit of a soft spot when March comes.”

Manchester City are at the top of the Premier League table at the moment with 26 points from 12 matches.

The Citizens are level on points with Arsenal but ahead on goal difference, while Leicester City are a point behind in third.

Manchester United are currently fourth in the standings with 24 points, while Tottenham Hotspur are three points behind them in fifth.

Last season’s Premier League winners Chelsea appear to be out of the running for the title race as they are way back in 16th with just 11 points from 12 matches.

Arsenal and City are the clear frontrunners, but United are very much in the running and could end up winning the title.

Not many Premier League followers will give Tottenham too much of a chance, but the North London outfit have been consistent so far this season and have a good squad.

Spur’s main aim is to finish in the Champions League places, but given that they are so close to the top, perhaps they should give it a go.
