Sergio Aguero, the former Manchester City striker, has made predictions about the new Premier League season.
He named Arsenal as one of his “candidates” to lift the Premier League title this season along with Manchester City and Liverpool.
The Gunners narrowly missed out to north London rivals Tottenham in the race for the top four last season.
However, Mikel Arteta has added Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko who arrived from City, while Fabio Vieira, Marquinhos and Matt Turner have also come in.
“As always, I believe that the Premier League will show this season that it is beginning to be one of the most competitive leagues in the world.
“My candidates are Manchester City, which I think can repeat (winning the title), Liverpool, Chelsea and I add Arsenal, who have strengthened very well and has had great games in the preseason.
“I believe the top four will be Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal,” Aguero told Stake.com.
