Arsenal have no chance of winning the Premier League despite sitting top of the table after eight games.
That’s according to former Leeds United stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about what the Gunners should be targeting this season.
Arsenal sit top of the Premier League after eight games, winning seven and losing only one of their matches.
Mikel Arteta’s side ended Tottenham’s unbeaten run on Saturday (1 October) and moved four points clear at the top of the table before Man City reduced the deficit to one point the following day.
Despite the Gunners’ string start, Kenny insists they will not beat Man City to the title though he claims Arteta’s side should not be disheartened by that prediction.
“I’m convinced Man City will win it easily, I’m sorry to say,” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“I do think Arsenal have progressed massively from last season. We can all see that but a top-four finish, for me, has to be the aim for them this season.
“Get back in the Champions League and go from there. It’s progress. I think they will, with the way things are going at the minute, they are top-four contenders.
“For the title, I’m sorry to say, the brutal truth is I just can’t look past Man City. It’s a long old season and I can’t see past them.
“Fair play to Arsenal, they have had a comfortable start to the season. Bar the Man United match, which they lost, the Tottenham game was their biggest test and they have passed it.
“They have more steel in them this year.
“It’s about progression and they are progressing.”
