Manchester City winger, Riyad Mahrez, has tipped Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur to be involved in the title race this season.
Mahrez played a crucial role ss City won the league last term and played in the Champions League final.
Although most pundits expect the top four to be between City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool, the Algerian has added two surprise teams.
“Every season they say it’s going to be tighter and tighter and this season it will be, to be fair.
“This season will be tough, Chelsea are very good – Liverpool, [Manchester] United, Arsenal, Tottenham, Leicester too. We are ready,” Mahrez said, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Pep Guardiola’s men begin their title defence against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
