Arsenal legend Ian Wright has named six teams in the top fight of English football to challenge for the title next season.
Wright also said he is ‘so proud’ of his old club despite their recent collapse in the title race.
Arsenal suffered a damaging defeat at the hands of Brighton on Sunday to put any hopes of winning the title this season to bed.
Manchester City need just three points from their final three games to lift an astonishing fifth title in six years.
The Gunners, having stayed top of the Premier League table for the majority of the season, collapsed at the crucial time.
Wright said he is ‘so proud’ of Arsenal, adding that they deserve immense credit for challenging Manchester City.
Wright named Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Newcastle United as title challengers to this season’s top two.
“Looking ahead, the slight worry I have for Arsenal is that Mauricio Pochettino is heading to Chelsea, so they’re coming. They have an excellent squad,” he told his podcast.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen with Manchester United, but you know they aren’t going to sleep for too long.
“Liverpool are going to be making the signings they need to get them back to where they want to be.
‘You look at those sides plus Man City and Arsenal – and even Newcastle – they’re all coming now and that’s exciting.”
