Manchester City will face Arsenal this Saturday in an English Premier League encounter but City striker, Edin Dzeko does not consider Arsenal as their major title rivals. Even though he believes Arsene Wenger’s side will be in contention for the title come May 2015, it is another London team, Chelsea who he considers City’s biggest title rival.
Speaking to Manchester City’s official website ahead of the Arsenal game which comes up this weekend after the international break, the 28-year-old had this to say:
“[The Arsenal game] will be difficult but I’m an optimist,”
“This season Chelsea might be the most serious challenger but we mustn’t ignore Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal, or [Manchester] United, who will certainly be much stronger than last year. After all, everyone has got stronger and everyone wants to be first.”
The Bosnian forward recently signed a new four-year deal for Manchester City
