Former Arsenal star Theo Walcott has made a new Premier League title prediction with five games left to play this season. There is currently just one point that separates the top three, however Manchester City do have a game in-hand.

The Gunners got their campaign back on track against Wolves on Saturday. Mikel Arteta’s side had to respond after the disappointing defeat to Aston Villa and they did just that with a 2-0 win at Molineux.

Likewise, Jurgen Klopp was also looking for a response from his side and they delivered as they ran out 3-1 winners against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday.

The results put Arsenal and Liverpool both on the same points at the top of the Premier League table, with the Gunners ahead only on goal difference.

Arsenal fell apart at the end of last season which handed Manchester City their third Premier League title in as many years. Mikel Arteta is trying to make sure his team don’t make the same mistakes this time around. While Walcott is backing his old club to have learnt from last season.

Theo Walcott when asked if he felt Arsenal would go on to win the title this term with five games left: “Yes, I do.”

“It’s these games I don’t think you’re going to have to get yourself up for, you’re just made for it. These are players that want to make the difference and to create history and to change that pattern.

“City, I feel like Brighton and Tottenham, they’ve got a lot to say. Liverpool again, Fulham away, Everton away. There’s some tough fixtures. But Arsenal, I expect them to get the points in those games.”


Remaining games for the title rivals:

  • Arsenal: Chelsea (H), Tottenham (A), Bournemouth (H), Manchester United (A), Everton (H)
  • Manchester City: Brighton (A), Nottingham Forest (A), Wolves (H), Fulham (A), Tottenham (A), West Ham (H)
  • Liverpool: Everton (A), West Ham (A), Tottenham (H), Aston Villa (A), Wolves (H)

Fellow Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp added: “Manchester City are incredible, but they’re not quite the same level.

“Anything can still happen, like what Manchester City did by winning that cup game [against Chelsea on Saturday] after the disappointment when they played so well against Real Madrid.

“I think they showed you everything about that side and the manager and the courage they showed to win that game. But it only takes a slip up. It’s not going to be that easy at this time of the season.”
