Former Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has given his opinion on whether Tottenham or Arsenal will finish higher in the Premier League table this season.
Tottenham and Arsenal have both strengthened significantly with players like Gabriel Jesus and Zinchenko arriving at the Emirates, and Richarlison, Perisic, and Bissouma arriving in N17.
Therefore, the feeling amongst both clubs is very positive as they look to continue progression in their projects.
After a hotly contested season last year, Tottenham pipped Arsenal to fourth place late on in the season. The experience of some of their players, having been involved in top four races in the past, proved vital.
This came to the fore as Tottenham rolled past Arsenal 3-0 late in the season, before the gunners lost 2-0 to Newcastle to hand their rivals the advantage going into the final day. Of course, Spurs dismantled Norwich and will play Champions League football this season.
While Liverpool and Manchester City look likely to continue their stay in the Champions League places, Chelsea are one club who may need to work hard to fend off teams climbing up the table.
Aguero told Stake.com (as relayed by Daily Star): “Chelsea, although they have lost important players, especially in defence, have shown that they are competitive and added [Raheem] Sterling.”
Speaking about Tottenham, the Argentine added: “The same as Tottenham with a coach like Conte who has experience in the Premier League, who has always formed competitive teams and has a very important offensive duo like the one made up of Kane and Son.”
Despite this, Aguero gave an interesting prediction on who would finish in the top four: “I believe the top four will be Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal.
Spurs Web Opinion:
It’s going to be a competitive race for the top four this season, but I fancy Tottenham to get in there. Conte’s been backed this summer with some excellent signings, and after finishing fourth last season, a full preseason under the Italian can only improve things.
We don’t mind being the underdogs, so this should suit us just fine.
