Former Manchester United Rio Ferdinand is rooting for Arsenal to win the Premier League title this season.
According to Ferdinand, the Gunners stand a chance of winning ahead of Liverpool who are also among the favourites to dethrone Man City.
Currently, Arsenal are seated at the top of the league table after their 1-0 win over Brentford on Saturday.
The Gunners were close to winning the title last season before they lost to Man City.
Ferdinand while speaking on Arsenal’s chances said, as quoted by Football London:
“Me and [Peter] Crouchy were sitting here thinking about how good these two are, they want to be aggressive, they want to defend with that high line.
“They have the best defensive record in the league at the moment and Declan Rice is perfect in front of them in the middle at the moment. That little triangle is going to be key for them going forward and it’s how they’re going to be successful.”
Adding: “To win anything, you have to have a centre-back pairing that you can trust. They’re the reason why I put them above Liverpool in the title race and they’re why they can challenge City this year.”
