Luis Enrique makes Premier League prediction

The PSG boss wishes Arsenal to end their Premier League drought

Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique has expressed his desire for Arsenal to clinch the Premier League title. However, he admits that overlooking defending champions Manchester City is a tough call.

Enrique, who shares Spanish roots with Arsenal's manager Mikel Arteta, would love to see his compatriot lead the Gunners to victory in England's top-flight football league. Despite last season's disappointment of losing their lead and finishing five points behind Manchester City, Arsenal has bounced back impressively in the current campaign.

The North London club has won 20 out of their 28 Premier League games and currently sits at the top of the table on goal difference. With ten games remaining, they are striving hard to lift their first Premier League trophy since 2004.

Luis Enrique says Man City are favourites realistically

Manchester City cannot be ignored either. Having been crowned champions of England in five out of six past seasons, they are just one point behind joint-leaders Arsenal and Liverpool with 63 points.

Enrique acknowledges this threat from Pep Guardiola’s side as he said that despite hoping for an Arteta-led victory for Arsenal; he expects Guardiola might once again get his hands on the coveted trophy.

Paris Saint-Germain manager, Luis Enrique, said:

‘I would like it if Mikel Arteta won it with Arsenal, otherwise, I’d like it to be Pep Guardiola, who has already won a lot. If not that, then it’s Aston Villa’s Unai Emery.

‘But I think Manchester City will win it, they are the favourites in my opinion.’

Action-packed weeks are ahead in Premier League

The title race may become clearer after March 31 when current leaders Gunners visit Etihad Stadium to take on reigning champions Manchester City. This match could potentially be a turning point in deciding who lifts this year’s Premier League trophy.

In their previous encounter earlier this season, Gabriel Martinelli scored a late winner for Arsenal. However, Manchester City had a decisive 4-1 victory in the corresponding fixture last season.

While Enrique's heart might be with Arsenal and Arteta, his head acknowledges the formidable challenge posed by Manchester City. As sports fans and betting enthusiasts alike watch this thrilling title race unfold, it is clear that the Premier League continues to offer some of the most exciting football action in the world.
