The Gunners are pushing for a comeback after their title defeat against Manchester City last season.

Arsenal’s squad is not big enough to compete in multiple competitions, according to former Manchester City star Richard Dunne.

Manchester City celebrated their fifth Premier League trophy under Pep Guardiola after beating Arsenal in the title race last season. 

The Gunners have made a solid start to the current campaign, sitting a point behind City in the standings. But Dunne believes Pep Guardiola’s side have other teams to worry about when it comes to defending the title.

“City and Liverpool will be up there,” Dunne told Betway“I’m still not sure about Arsenal and if they can compete in all the different competitions. Is their squad big enough?

“People have already spoken about their lack of a centre forward. They’ve created their own problems in the goalkeeping department, which now seems to be a big issue.

“Tottenham have shown they’re just not strong enough with a few injuries. I’m more inclined to go with Liverpool.”

Man City will face Liverpool in a crucial match upon their return to the Premier League on Saturday. Elsewhere, Arsenal take on Brentford, while Spurs host Aston Villa in London.
