Berbatov snubs Arsenal as he predicts who will win the Premier League

Given their notable summer transfer activities thus far, it’s evident that Arsenal has strategically positioned themselves to mount a challenge for the Premier League title in the upcoming season.

Following their commendable performance in the previous season, Arsenal has taken measures to reinforce their squad, aiming to capitalise on their existing strengths.

Numerous pundits and analysts share the sentiment that Arsenal remains a strong contender capable of providing Manchester City with stiff competition throughout the campaign.

This places Arsenal in a position to contend for the league title. However, former players like Dimitar Berbatov have differing opinions, with Berbatov selecting another club that he believes will emerge victorious.

The Bulgarian said, as quoted by Football London:

“I obviously want Manchester United to win the Premier League title. I think the Premier League champions will be Manchester City or Chelsea.

“I love the underdog story with Chelsea, especially when you don’t see it coming. I like Pochettino as a coach too, I want to see him succeed in England with a trophy.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have so many pundits and ex-players who think we will not win the league but that does not count because everyone starts the season with an equal chance to be champions.

We need to focus on preparing and working hard to end the campaign with silverware, hopefully, the Premier League or Champions League.

  1. OT: Arsenal pull off one of the strangest deal of the season, taking Raya on a season long loan.

    Is there a smoking gun?

    1. No, just an extremely good deal made by Edu. £3 million loan fee with option to buy next season, not even obligation, well done indeed.

      1. I’m not sure how that works for Brentford though ,he’s out of contract next season so they won’t get a fee if Arsenal don’t take up the option to buy before his contract is up .

        1. That’s the interesting thing about this deal, his contract automatically extended with Brentford if Arsenal do not take up the option of signing Raya at the end of the loan.

          Am still amazed, so what’s in it for the player?
          Just feels like there is something else to this deal.

  2. Several pundits have said they expect Man U to clinch / replace Arsenal in being 2nd to Man City. Most / all of those used to play for Man United though. Man U did well last season, but you can see they are still a couple of years behind Arsenal in the rebuilding project and I don’t think they will match Arsenal for consistency next season. I expect the top 4 to be Arsenal/City 1st/2nd, then between Man U, Liverpool, and Chelsea for 3rd/4th. I expect Newcastle to miss top-4 and Tottenham to be mid-table for ever or until they get new owners.

    1. Many pundits are overlooking Chelsea but the truth is , they will surely be a surprise package to many .
      They have a world class coach and Jackson on top look scary! Plus zero concentration in Europe.
      The last time, the league was theirs .

  3. Arsenal is always not given the credit the club deserves from its on-going efforts to push for the top four. Even last year no one expected Arsenal to to challenge for the tittle but surprisingly enough they ended up doing exactly that. I think it work well for Arsenal because this way it silence the negative voices that seem to look pass Arsenal when talking about achieving something for the season.

    1. It is surprising that people dont see beyond their noses when it comes to football predictions
      i see Arsenal winning the league and Newcastle coming second, man city third,

  4. I think this year will be even more competitive than last year with Newcastle one of the favourites for top 4 and Chelsea and Liverpool expected to come back stronger. My outsiders for top 4 are Brighton. Our showing against City was encouraging but all depends on how our team settles in the opening 6 or so games of the season with all our new recruits and who plays where.

  5. These pundits and their dumb predictions it’s hard to believe that they were top players under great managers.

  6. Key teams below City and Arsenal like Chelsea, Liverpool, Man U and Spurs will do better this season for different reasons. Logically, that likely will to cost City and Arsenal some points.
    So I expect a much closer title race this season.

    Spurs and Chelsea have the huge benefit of not having any European distractions and two decent managers to clean up the mess they were in last season. Man U have strengthened this summer and will be in the second season under Ten Hag. Liverpool are also rebuilding and won’t have the burden of CL football. All those teams have reason to hope they will do better this season.

    For me, City are still favorites, but they have the challenge of staying motivated after so much success. If anyone can do that it is Pep.

    For us, we did well signing Rice after we lost Xhaka and I like the addition of Timber. Not sure how to rate the Havertz signing as he would not feature in my starting 11, but I can see how he might add depth to our squad depending on how he is used. I don’t like him as a replacement for Jesus. But I do hope Arteta will be proven a genius for the Havertz signing.

    Our weakness for me is still our lack of depth (particularly for the lack of obvious Saka and Jesus competition) given the added burden of CL football, although we are clearly better positioned than last season.

    If Jesus has a killer season and both Jesus and Saka remain injury free and are properly rotated, we can well into the CL knockout phase and stay in the PL title race for a long time. If Jesus struggles with fitness, and we lose Saka or Odegaard for a prolonged period of time, we should be happy with top 4.

    I hope the manager will start using his subs more often and earlier in games than last season, particularly ESR and Trossard both of which should also start quite a few games IMO.
