Former Manchester United striker wants Manchester City to win the league

Former and Treble-winning Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham prefers Manchester City over Arsenal to win the Premier League.

Man United supporters’ relationships with either of the club are not quite good. But the local nature of rivalry with City means many of them would be supporting Gunners over the next few months.

It’s a different case with Sheringham, his rivalry with Arsenal takes back to when he played for Gunners arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Gunners are currently five points ahead of City with a game in hand but Sheringham feels that City are still in the title race.

While talking on talkSPORT, he said:

“It’s theirs [Arsenal’s] to throw away now,”

“Five points and an extra game in hand, the equivalent of eight points in front, but there are teams firing behind.

“You don’t really want Manchester City chasing you. Pep will make sure that his team get back on track and will hunt you down and I certainly hope they do.”

Sheringham was often booed by Arsenal fans due to his Spurs connection when he joined Manchester United in 1997. After his first season, United were empty-handed while Arsenal were celebrating League and cup double. Sheringham was greeted by the chants of

Teddy, Teddy, he came to Man United and he won f*** all,”.

After that Sheringham played a crucial role in the club’s Treble of the Premier League, FA cup, and Champions League in 1999. He scored in the FA cup and Champions League finals that year. He won three Premier League titles while at Man United.
