Former Liverpool and Chelsea defender, Glen Johnson has backed Arsenal to win the English Premier League (EPL) title this season.
Johnson said that Arsenal, under their manager Mikel Arteta, are good enough to win the Premier League title this year.
He also said that the Gunners are like Leicester City, adding that they will not retain the EPL title if they end up champions in May.
Arsenal are currently on top of the Premier League table ahead of second-place Manchester City.
“My point was that Arsenal are a bit like Leicester [City]. When Leicester won the league, everyone else was rubbish and they did not get close to winning the title again,” Johnson told ICE 36.
“The following season, they were nowhere near it. Arsenal are probably good enough to win the league this year, but I don’t expect them to retain the title because all of the other big clubs will improve and bounce back.”
