Wayne Rooney makes Premier League title race prediction

Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney believes Manchester City will beat Arsenal to the Premier League title this season.

Arsenal is eight points clear at the top of the table heading into the final 10 matches of the season, albeit Manchester City can reduce the gap if they win their game in hand.

Pep Guardiola’s side has won the league in four of the past five seasons, while Arsenal last time won the league in 2004.

“I think it’s going to be intriguing because Arsenal have not been in this position for a long time and it can be a lot of pressure that goes with that,"

Rooney told CNN.

“Certainly when you start getting into the last seven or eight games of the season that’s when the pressure starts. I’m really interested to see if they can sustain what they’ve been doing all season.

“I think Manchester City will be there. They’ve won the league the last few years, they’ve won titles, they have a very experienced coach in winning titles in Guardiola so I’m intrigued to see if Arsenal hold out or if City can use their experience in previous years and nick the title off them."

Mikel Arteta’s side was beaten 3-1 by Manchester City last month, and both teams will face each other again at the Etihad on April 26.

Rooney added:

“I think City will pip them to it. I think United are almost out of it now – not fully – but almost. If you’re asking me who I want to win it between Arsenal and City, then I hope Arsenal do win it.”
