EPL: Top scorers don’t win league – David James makes fresh title prediction
Former Liverpool goalkeeper, David James, has predicted that Arsenal will win the Premier League title ahead of Manchester City this season.
James believes Manchester City striker Erling Haaland could be a hindrance in Manchester City’s bid to beat Arsenal in the Premier League title race this term.
According to him, the highest goalscorers don’t win the Premier League.
“The reality is that top goalscorers don’t win the [Premier] league. Manchester City have got the top goalscorer… but I think that detracts from the productivity of the team,” James told Topratedcasinos.
“If you look at Arsenal, Bukayo Saka is their top goalscorer, but you’ve got Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah all spreading the goals around similar to how [Manchester] City did it last season when they won the league.
“I still think Arsenal are favourites to win the [Premier] league.”
Arsenal are at the moment on top of the Premier League table with eight points ahead of Man City, who sit in second position.
Though, Pep Guardiola’s side has a game in hand.
