Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte believes Arsenal will challenge for the Premier League title
Conte is of the opinion that only two teams have a chance to win the Premier League this season and that is Arsenal and Manchester City. The Gunners strengthened their position with an impressive win against Tottenham last night.
Interestingly though, the Spurs boss did not mention either Newcastle United or Manchester United who are just one point behind Man City in the table. However, any team is going to struggle to stop Arsenal this season.
Mikel Arteta has built a sensational squad this campaign. The Spanish tactician is making his team play some delightful football and not at one point do they look like they cannot win a game against any opposition.
It is the result of hard work that Arteta has put in over the past couple of seasons, slowly yet surely laying the groundwork for the kind of football they are playing and the kind of results they are getting.
Tottenham last night had no clue how to stop the impressive Arsenal. They were relentless as ever, putting pressure on Conte’s team and the Lilywhites really struggled to even play out of the back.
Speaking about the Premier League title race this season, here is what Conte had to say about the clubs that can win it.
“I think with Manchester City they (Arsenal) are the only two teams who are going to fight for the Premier League this season”
Tottenham are effectively out of the title race after a very impressive start to the season. However, they will know that they have to continually push for the top four and try and secure Champions League football for next season.
