Former Everton and Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta who now works at Manchester City has stated that they have a great chance of winning the title this season.
He said that Pep Guardiola has brought in some strong players and that they will definitely help the team achieve their objective this season.
Arteta said that Manchester City had been criticized for having a poor goalkeeper last team and he feels that this weakness has been addressed by the signing of a new goalkeeper.
Mikel Arteta said that the arrival of three new full backs mean that they will have a new defence this season and that they will help the team perform better at the back. He said that there were times last season where they were conceding some cheap goals and he feels that the arrival of these new players will help bring more solidity at the back.
Mikel Arteta said that Pep Guardiola is a great manager and that he has a clear strategy on how football should be played. He said that he is spending time on the training ground to help the team get used to his playing tactics and he feels that this will be evident at the start of the season.
However, the former Arsenal midfielder has warned fans that things will not be easy this season as there are some many good teams in the Premier League. He said that the new television deal has given each team enough cash to sign quality players and that there are no small teams in the Premier League at the moment.
He said fans should expect the team to go through some bad time and that they should be ready to support the team whatever happens. He said that the objective of the team is to win the Premier League and that they will give their best to achieve that.
