have ‘no chance’ of winning the title despite their sensational start to the Premier League season.
That is the opinion of former Liverpool, Nottingham Forest and England striker Stan Collymore, who has ruled Mikel Arteta’s side out of the title race.
Arsenal finished just fifth last season – missing out on the – but have won 10 of their first 11 games of the 2022-23 campaign.
The Gunners’ form has seen them climb to the top of the Premier League table – one point ahead of defending champions – and lead their group.
But Collymore does not think Arsenal will be at the top of the English top-flight come May and expects Man City to ‘run away’ with the title race.
Manchester City travel to Anfield to face former title rivals Liverpool on Sunday, while Premier League leaders Arsenal visit struggling Leeds United.
‘I think Sunday [Liverpool v Man City] will be Pep Guardiola’s day,’ Collymore told .
‘I think his Citizens will control the game from start to finish and look almost unbeatable in the process.
‘I’m not saying Liverpool are going to get thumped, but I do think City will take all three points quite comfortably.
‘Unfortunately, if my prediction ends up unfolding, I think that would be the biggest sign that City are going to run away with it and lift their seventh Premier League title.
‘I understand why some fans are excited to see what Arsenal can do, but there is no way the Gunners are going to go on an emphatic 38-game run similarly to what we saw happen between Liverpool and City last season – no chance.’
