Ian Wright gives his verdict on whom he thinks will win the league title between Liverpool and Arsenal


Former Arsenal icon Ian Wright gives his verdict on the Premier League title race. Wright was speaking after Liverpool’s 4-0 victory over Bournemouth in the Premier League. It is certainly threatening to be one of the most exciting Premier League title races there has been for a long time this season. Just eight points separate the top five right now. Although, Man City will be the team entering in the scene lately. They recently cameback from behind to beat Newcastle United. On the other hand, Arsenal beat Crystal Palace 5-0 in their home game.

Wright backs Liverpool to win the Premier League glory

Speaking on Wrighty’s House, Ian Wright admitted that the aura of Klopp’s men leaves them with an edge over title. He said,

Liverpool have trod these boards before. They know what to do. And no Trent, no Salah. And I thought that Bournemouth game was going to be a tough one. But can I just say, Darwin Nunez, whatever anyone says, 10 goals, 10 assists, he’s starting to do stuff. People can say whatever they want about how many chances he misses. But Konate and Virgil at the back, solid. I think Bradley will come in and it looks like he’s going to be solid for the time-being for what he’s doing. He looks really comfortable. But in the main, Liverpool, especially the way Mac Allister played the other day, I just feel like I fancy Liverpool. I really do.”

Despite the victory, the Reds are still not comfortable enough to easily clinch the title. They will surely have to face a tough competition from Arsenal and City. They were unable to break the Cherries defence in the first half. Though, later on Jota and Darwin Nunez’s brace completely twisted the valour efforts of Cherries. Moreover, their only defeat this season came in controversial circumstances away at Tottenham. It might not be a bad call from someone like Wright to predict the champion. Be sure to keep an eye on the title race!
