Andros Townsend predicts: Who will win the Premier League title this season?

Luton Town winger Andros Townsend has identified the winner of the Premier League battle between Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester City. The Gunners are preparing for a crucial trip to Manchester over the weekend in the Premier League title race.

This will be the last head-to-head fixture between the three title contenders and Arsenal‘s record in big games this season gives them a unique edge ahead of Sunday’s crucial fixture.

Manchester City are one point behind Arsenal and Liverpool who are separated by goal difference in the league standings.

Townsend believes Manchester City will come out on top between the three clubs if they maintain their consistency like last season. He backs Pep Guardiola’s side to secure a fourth successive title given their proven ability in the highest stage.

“I feel like Man City are the only team in world football who can go and win their remaining ten games and go on and win the league,” Townsend told BBC’s ‘The Monday Night Club’ podcast.

“De Bruyne is coming back into form, they have players coming back at the right time and they have been there and done it.”

Manchester City vs Arsenal: Who will win this weekend?

The Gunners will be traveling to the Etihad as they go toe-toe with title-defenders Manchester City on Sunday, 31st March. Man City are trailing in the league table by just one point and would leapfrog Arsenal if they secure a win at home.

Mikel Arteta’s men haven’t won away at the Etihad since 2015 but Man City have already lost twice to the North London club this season. The Gunners narrowly missed out on the Premier League crown last season, finishing five points behind Pep Guardiola’s men.

Despite their tremendous form, Man City have shown vulnerabilities this season which Arsenal can exploit with their front three up top.

It’s going to be a fascinating watch and a lot may still be decided by the fitness of both club’s respective players when they return from international duty over the weekend.

Man City have dealt with a number of serious injuries this season with the likes of John Stones, Kyle Walker, Kevin De Bruyne and Manuel Akanji all struggling with their respective concerns. Arsenal, on the other hand, are sweating over injuries to Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Magalhaes, and Martinelli but there’s a hope the trio could make a cameo this weekend.
