Newcastle United legend, Alan Shearer has backed Manchester City to win the Premier League title again this season.

Shearer also tipped the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Aston Villa to finish in the Premier League top four this term.

This comes after Arsenal’s surprise 2-0 home defeat against West Ham United on Thursday.

Recall that Arsenal’s defeat to the Hammers means that Liverpool are currently top of the Premier League standings with two points clear of the North London club.

But despite the advantage at the halfway stage, Shearer still believes that neither Liverpool nor Arsenal will win the 2023-24 Premier League as he backs Pep Guardiola’s side to retain the title, with Aston Villa to finish fourth position.

Speaking on Amazon Prime Video Sport (via Rousing the Kop), Shearer said: “[Manchester] City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Villa. I wanted to put Newcastle in but I can’t!”

Man City, meanwhile, are currently in fourth position in the Premier League standings, having picked up 37 points from 18 games.

The Citizens do have a game in hand over their fellow title contenders.
