Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has said Arsenal are favourites to win the Premier League title this season.
He however advised Mikel Arteta’s men not to entertain thoughts of winning the title.
The Gunners will regain their eight-point lead over Manchester City if they beat United on Sunday.
“Arsenal are the favourites for the title. But if I was in that dressing room, I wouldn’t be talking about it.
“Of course, it would flash up in your mind now and again, but there is such a long way to go this season that they just need to take it game-by-game and they will be on the right path.
“If they can keep their feet on the ground and take it a game at a time, they will be there or thereabouts come the business end,” Ferdinand told William Hill.
