Rio Ferdinand predicts who will win the Premier League

In just a few days, the new Premiership season starts, and the excitement is at its peak. Many are wondering who will be the main candidate for the next season's title, given that many teams have strengthened, and that there are a large number of quality teams.

Judging by the forecasts of experts and ordinary football fans, Manchester City will be the main favorite again. Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand gave his predictions. In his opinion, Arsenal and United are the only teams that can come close to the Citizens.

‘Manchester United and Arsenal, two challengers. If anyone’s going to get close to them [Man City], it’ll be those two,’ Ferdinand told TNT Sports, as quoted by METRO ‘I still think there’s a difference between Manchester United and Manchester City: on the pitch and off the pitch.

But I think Manchester United are going in the right direction. I think you can see how they have approached the transfer window, it’s been very decisive and forthright.

Ferdinand believes that Arsenal and United have brought great reinforcements that could be important links in the future.

However, on the other hand, Manchester City has a team that has proven to be too strong for everyone. Winning the treble last year was no easy task, and they succeeded in it. ‘They have executed on three very good players who are going to improve the squad no doubt, potentially another one coming in after that, we’ll have to wait and see.

And I think Arsenal have done the same. They have recruited superbly well in this window. Three very good players who are not only going to improve the squad but the starting XI. They’ll go close this season but as for City, I don’t think anyone is going to pip them to the title.’
