Jose Mourinho predicts who will win the Premier League title this season

Jose Mourinho predicts who will win the Premier League title this season

Jose Mourinho has spoken about this season’s Premier League title race

Jose Mourinho has predicted who will become Premier League champions this season.

During two separate spells with Chelsea, Portuguese manager Mourinho managed to win the Premier League on three occasions.

After successful spells with the Blues, Mourinho failed to recreate those successes when he was in charge of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Now at the helm of Serie A side AS Roma, Mourinho has spoken about this season’s title race.

At the moment, Arsenal are out in front as they hold a narrow one-point lead over Liverpool and Aston Villa.

Champions Manchester City are fourth, five points behind leaders Arsenal.

Speaking on the Obi One podcast, Mourinho said: “I would say Man City 51%, and Liverpool 49%.”

When asked about Arsenal, the ‘Special One’ replied: “Nah. It is not the rivalry, is it the right moment? Honestly, rivalry apart, I would like them to win.

“Of course, Chelsea and Man United are not going to win it. Out of these three, I would be happy for Arsenal to do it. I would be really happy for them to break that thing.”

Mourinho continued: “It is because when the cumulation of matches starts coming, Man City have two teams.”


Last season, Arsenal surprised many as they embarked on an unexpected charge for the Premier League title.

However, despite leading the way for the majority of the season, the Gunners were eventually overhauled by Pep Guardiola’s rampant City side, who ended up winning a historic treble.

After his side’s 2-0 win against Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said: “The team is clicking because we are experiencing more and spending more time together.

“When you talk about Kai Havertz or Declan Rice, for example, now they’ve played more time with us, they understand certain things quicker and it’s easier to understand certain things in games because they get it.”
