Former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie makes Man City and Liverpool prediction
Van Persie also suggested that City will struggle to maintain their impressively high standards when manager Pep Guardiola leaves.
“It goes in periods,” he told the BBC.
“Now you have Manchester City, who are doing unbelievable. To win back-to-back titles is very special – that shows, really, that you’re a proper team.
“But it goes in phases. Maybe (City manager) Pep Guardiola will leave next year and that does something to a club. Maybe Liverpool will take over and they will dominate for the next few years.
“But I hope and wish Arsenal all the best to win the title. I know how difficult it is.”
