Man City going for a third straight title
Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi has been speaking about who he thinks will win the 2019/20 Premier League title.
Manchester City would dominate the division in 2017/18, earning a record-breaking 100 points in the PL.
City then went on to earn a staggering 98 points this past season, but Liverpool were breathing down their necks, and finished the season just one point behind.
Now, Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi has stated that while Liverpool did give the Citizens a tough challenge, City could be favourites, again:
“Everyone thought that last season, but Liverpool give them a tough challenge as well,” he said.
“So, you never know what could happen. I’m sure every club’s going to invest and try and get their team right. Pre-season’s coming up really soon, so everyone’s trying to get ready for the season to start.
“It’s hard to say right now whether Man City are going to dominate, but they could be favourites, considering they won it again.” As quoted by the Mirror.
Iwobi eyeing Champions League
In the same interview, Iwobi spoke about what he wants to achieve next season.
While he did say that Arsenal have not spoken about targets for next season, Iwobi is eyeing a return to Champions League football.
The Gunners have missed out on Europe’s elite competition for the past three seasons.
If Arsenal fail to secure CL football in the forthcoming season, Iwobi wants to win as many things as possible:
“Obviously we want to get back in to Champions League football.
“We haven’t spoken about where our targets are for next season, but I’m sure he’d [Emery] want to improve.
“The whole team would want to improve on the previous season we had and try to get to that Champions League.
“And, if not, win as many competitions, including the Europa League as well.” As quoted by the Mirror.
