Slight favourites’… Ally McCoist now predicts who’ll win the Premier League

Ally McCoist has labelled Manchester City ‘slight favourites’ to beat Arsenal and Liverpool to the Premier League title this season.

Just two points separate Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City as we approach the business end of the campaign

Jurgen Klopp’s men lead the way on 60 points, with Mikel Arteta’s side and City just a couple of points off the pace.

The Gunners are the most in-form side in the league at the moment having picked up five consecutive wins.

But many still believe City will find another gear and after Erling Haaland’s five goals in the FA Cup last night, Ally McCoist is baking Pep Guardiola’s side to get over the line once again

McCoist backs City to win the Premier League
Speaking on talkSPORT, McCoist was asked if he still believes Guardiola’s men are the best in the division at the moment.

“Just,” he responded. “I mean, Arsenal’s form since the break has been fantastic. Porto aside, I’m talking about their league form, outstanding.

Liverpool are doing remarkably well considering the injuries. City, you’d be a madman to rule them out, particularly with the top fellas battering goals everywhere now.

“I’ve probably just got City slight favourites but in terms of is it good for English football? I think it’s good for English football if the best team wins the league.
