    The goalscoring legend believes Arteta’s project is coming together but his former club and Liverpool remain the most likely to lift the title.

    He said to “As always, I believe that the Premier League will show this season that it is one of the most competitive leagues in the world.

    “My candidates [to win the league] are Manchester City, which I think can repeat, Liverpool, Chelsea and I add Arsenal, who have strengthened very well and have had great games in the pre-season. 

    “We will have to be attentive to Arsenal’s performance, they have put together a great project with the help of Arteta and I think that this year they will give people something to talk about.

    “City’s advantage is that they already have a team that knows what to do on the field and has added Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez.

    “It is true that they must adapt but Pep has already said that great players do not need time to adapt.”

    Despite City being Aguero’s pick to retain the Premier League title he is clearly impressed with the signings made by Arsenal.

    They have added five players to their squad such as Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus.
