Arsenal legend Paul Merson has predicted that Manchester City will win the Premier League title in 2021-22 ahead of Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool.

He told Sportskeeda: “I firmly believe this is one could be the closest [Premier League title race] lately.

“Man City, Man United, Chelsea and Liverpool can all win the title – this is a four-way battle for the Premier League crown and I don’t expect that one of them will run away by a double-digit margin.

“Some might say that Manchester City winning the Premier League title isn’t exactly a bold prediction, but as I said, four teams could win it.

“We could see one of the closest [Premier League] title races in ages, but I expect Man City to be ahead this season.”
