Martin Odegaard gives honest view on who are favourites to win title out of Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City

Martin Odegaard gives honest view on who are favourites to win title out of Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City

The Arsenal skipper has had his say.

Martin Odegaard has given his honest opinion on who will win the Premier League title this season.

This season's title race is shaping up to be one of the closest and most exciting in years, with Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City all fighting for the crown.

City and Arsenal's goalless draw on Sunday handed Liverpool the initiative, with Jurgen Klopp's side currently sitting top of the table with 67 points.

Arsenal are second with 65 points, while City are third with 64.

With none of the three contenders facing each other before the end of the season, it will be a case of who blinks first and who can build a run of victories.

Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard will be hoping his side can come out on top after losing out to City in a two-horse title race last season.

When asked who he thinks the title favourites are, the midfielder kept his cards close to his chest.

"I don't know to be honest. We don't care too much about the other teams, we just focus on ourselves and the job we can do and what we can control, just the games we play," Odegaard told TNT Sports.

"So I think that's our mindset, just to keep focussing on ourselves, keep working hard and trying to win every time we play. Then we'll see."


In the same interview, Odegaard suggested that the experience of fighting for the title last season could serve Arsenal well this time around.

"I think you see a more mature team [this season], we've learned a lot from what happened last season.

"Obviously it was a really tough end for everyone at the club and I think we've used that in a good way a I feel we're a lot stronger this year.

"Obviously some new players have come in and brought in some quality, but I think what we learned and what we went through was something good for the team to progress and to grow.

"It was painful, but if you use it in a good way it can help you, so hopefully that's what we can do this year."

On Wednesday Arsenal will take on Luton Town and City will face Aston Villa, before Liverpool welcome Sheffield United to Anfield on Thursday.
