Michael Owen Backs Manchester City for Premier League Title, Praises Arsenal’s Progress
Renowned football pundit and former Manchester United and Liverpool striker, Michael Owen, recently took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the Premier League title race. Owen firmly believes that Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will not emerge as champions this season, instead throwing his support behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to claim the coveted trophy in the final stages of the competition.
Owen’s assertion stems from Arsenal’s disappointing defeat against Brighton and Hove Albion at their home ground, the Emirates Stadium, this past Sunday. According to the former striker, this setback has significantly diminished Arsenal’s chances of lifting the title.
Nevertheless, Owen was quick to acknowledge Arsenal’s commendable performance throughout the season. Despite their recent loss, the Gunners have showcased notable progress under the guidance of Mikel Arteta.
That’s the title race over but hats off to @Arsenal they have massively exceeded all expectations this season.

In Sunday’s Premier League encounter, Arsenal suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Brighton at the Emirates Stadium. Meanwhile, the defending champions, Manchester City, delivered an impressive performance by securing a convincing 3-0 victory against Everton away from home at Goodison Park earlier today.
With these results in mind, Manchester City now sit at the summit of the league table with an impressive tally of 85 points from 35 matches played. Their consistent form and formidable squad make them strong contenders for the Premier League title.
