Arsenal may not make the top four finish in the premier league, despite their fabulous six games winning streak.
Manchester United may have won their game against Newcastle and they may have a strong squad but the team under Jose Mourinho does not look like a title contender.
Those are the views of Premier League legend, Alan Shearer who adds that the 2018/2019 EPL season is a two-horse title race between Manchester City and Liverpool.
Shearer who holds record as premier league’s top leading goal scorer with 260 goals said this on BBC MATCH OF THE DAY 2 ANALYSIS.
“The top of the Premier League could not be much tighter, with only two points separating the top five teams, but I still cannot see beyond a two-horse title race between Manchester City and Liverpool,” Shearer said concerning City and Liverpool.
On United, the 48-year-old finds situation at the club ’embarrassing’ while Arsenal is just within the same view of their bitter rivals, though not in an embarrassing fold.
“You have to go further down the table to find Manchester United and, much like Arsenal, I do not see them as title contenders at all.
“Of course, I did not expect to be saying that after only eight games. Before the season started I thought United and Liverpool would both be close to City this time. Now? Jose Mourinho’s side are nowhere near.
“As I said on Match of the Day on Saturday, what has been happening at United this season has been embarrassing right through the club.
“United have plenty of time to make up the ground they have lost on the leaders, but there is a reason they are already off the pace and, like the Gunners, I think their main aim now will just be to finish fourth.”
