Sergio Aguero has named Arsenal as one of his ‘candidates’ to win the Premier League this season along with Manchester City and Liverpool.

The Gunners narrowly lost out to north London rivals Tottenham in the race for the top four last season but they have strengthened their squad this summer.

Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko arrived from City, while Fabio Vieira, Marquinhos and Matt Turner have also come in.

Last season, City and Liverpool dominated the division, finishing on 93 and 92 points respectively.

Many are expecting them to do the same in the 2022/23 campaign, with Pep Guardiola’s side strengthened with the signing of Erling Haaland and Liverpool recruiting Darwin Nunez.

Former City star Aguero believes Arsenal are ones to watch this season in terms of the title race.

‘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,’ Stake ambassador Aguero told

‘And in this sense, my candidates are Manchester City, which I think can repeat, Liverpool, Chelsea and I add Arsenal, which has strengthened very well and has had great games in the pre-season.

‘City’s advantage is that it already has a team that knows what to do on the field and has added variants such as Haaland and Julian Alvarez. It is true that they must adapt but Pep has already said that great players do not need time to adapt. City have lost Sterling although Liverpool, who will be in the fight, have lost Mane but have brought in Darwin Nunez.

‘Everything will be very even, as it has been happening, but we will have to be attentive to Arsenal’s performance, which has put together a great project with the help of Arteta and I think that this year they will give people something to talk about.

‘[Manchester] United is in the process of rebuilding and with a new manager but they are always in the fight. Chelsea, although they have lost important players, especially in defence, have shown that they are competitive and added Sterling.

‘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.

‘But let’s not forget that there is always a surprise team and this year there are many who can give the note. Aston Villa, Newcastle, Brighton… there are many who will fight for a place in Europe.

‘I believe the top four will be Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal.’
