Robbie Savage has told BBC Radio 5 Live – as per BBC Live – that he believes Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City could all win the Premier League title this season, following Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City.
Liverpool failed to beat Manchester City and remain top of the Premier League as Mo Salag’s opening penalty was cancelled out by an excellent turn and shot from Gabriel Jesus. Kevin De Bruyne missed a penalty to make it 2-1.
The game died off in the second half with both sides looking nervy and happy to settle for a point. It leaves Pep Guardiola’s side all the way down in 10th place, while Liverpool are in third behind Tottenham and Leicester.
Savage discussed who could win the Premier League following the 1-1 draw, and he reckons the point apiece is proof anyone can win the title – naming Spurs, Arsenal and Leicester. His comments came before Arsenal’s 3-0 loss to Aston Villa.
“You’ve got to say now after watching that second half, Arsenal, Spurs, Leicester, any of these teams could now win the Premier League ahead of Man City or Liverpool,” Savage said.
TBR’s view – Who could realistically win the PL title?
Right now, clubs in European football are up against it. Due to the shortened season, Liverpool and Manchester City – among others – have to play a match every midweek and then every weekend. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer complained about it on Saturday.
That could be the reason for below-par performances from last season’s top two, as well as Manchester United and Chelsea. Tottenham have also slipped on occasion, while Leicester are struggling with numerous injuries.
But when the European games are played out and it returns to one match a week, Liverpool and City will return to their best. Can anyone keep up? Tottenham have been excellent, as have Leicester – but Arsenal seem too inconsistent.
