Ederson backs Manchester City to pip Arsenal to the Premier League title

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes has backed his side to win the Premier League ahead of current table-toppers Arsenal.

The Gunners are chasing their first title in 19 years and have an eight-point lead over Man City. 

Despite the gap, the former Benfica shot-stopper believes his side can still win the title.

The Cityzens remain in the FA Cup and the Champions League. Ederson feels his side can win all three trophies.

City face Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and Sheffield United in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Ederson told Sky Sports: “I think for me personally it has been a good season, but for the team as well. We are still in three competitions, and that is really important. We are still capable of winning them all.

“In the Premier League, we are behind Arsenal, but with a game in hand and a game against them at home, so we are still in the race.

“We have a really difficult game against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, a good team with experience in the competition.

“In the FA Cup, we are facing a Sheffield United team that are having a really good season in the Championship. But we are still alive in all those competitions, and the team feels in a good way.

“We started the season really well, had that little dip, but now it feels like we are back to our best, and if we keep that up until the end of the season, I think we have a really good chance in all three competitions.”

Despite lying eight points behind Arsenal, City could still finish ahead in the title race.

They know how to win titles and have done that consistently under Pep Guardiola.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta does not have the mentally-prepared title-winning players that City possess.

Former Manchester United Wayne Rooney believes City will win the title ahead of Arsenal due to their mentality on the run-in.
