Aguero: Arsenal will be the dark horse of the Premier League


Former Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has revealed his expectations for the Premier League's battle for the new season 2022-2023.

The Argentine star put Arsenal in a distinguished position, while he expected Liverpool to compete with City for the title again.

Arsenal failed to qualify for the Champions League last season, but expectations are growing about it before the opening day match with Crystal Palace on Friday evening.

Aguero worked under Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta during the latter's tenure as Guardiola's assistant coach at City.

"I nominate Manchester City for the title, I think he can repeat what he did last season, and I add Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal, who strengthened his ranks very well, and played great matches in the preparatory period," the Daily Mail quoted Aguero as saying.

Aguero expected Arsenal to be the dark horse this season, adding: "Everything will be very equal, as it was happening, but we have to be attentive to the performance of Arsenal, who put in a great project with the help of Arteta, and I think they will give people something to talk about this year."

Meanwhile, Aguero, 34, has nominated his compatriot, Julian Alvarez, to achieve massive success at Manchester City.

City signed Alvarez, 22, from River Plate in a deal worth 14 million pounds, and he appeared energetic during his team's 1-3 defeat to Liverpool in the Community Shield, where he scored City's only goal in the match.

Aguero added, "Julian has all the conditions for success in City. He has already shown that in the two matches he played, in which he scored a goal against Liverpool."

And he added, "He is a quiet boy who looks shy, but when it comes to training and competition, he is among the best. He works hard and gives everything and never stops running."

He concluded, "He is a locomotive and is very eager to evolve, my advice to him is to be himself, listen and try to absorb all the instructions. With his abilities, he will be able to compete at the best level."
