That's the opinion of Matt Le Tissier.

Arsenal are fourth, having won their last nine games in all competitions, but north London rivals Tottenham are hot on their heels.

Questions were asked of Unai Emery's tactics after back-to-back defeats to City and Chelsea to start the season, but confidence is growing at the Emirates Stadium.

'Even without someone who was considered to be their best player last season in Kevin De Bruyne, they're still sitting top of the table after eight games.

"I think I will go with Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs for the top four", Le Tissier told Sky Sports.

"In terms of Arsenal's form, they beat Fulham at the weekend and previous to that they were lucky against Watford and Everton, while only beating Newcastle and Cardiff by the odd goal", Le Tissier said in his assessment of the Premier League season so far. "They can win it [the title]".

I'm not sure the opposition in those games has been so good that they can get over-confident about their run and their title chances.

"They are playing very good football at the moment and winning games".

Gary Neville still believes that the Premier League will be a two-horse race and have chosen not to recognize both Chelsea and Arsenal as challengers.

Sky Sports pundit, and former Southampton midfielder, Matt Le Tissier has identified Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur as teams to finish top-four in the Premier League this season.

"It's been good. They have had a very good start", he said.

However, Chelsea FC's strong start to the new campaign has left them in second place in the table and level on points with joint leaders Manchester City and Liverpool FC after eight games.

'Manchester United have got some ground to make up if they are going to be in contention'.

"But when I watch the Gunners, I don't see a team that can challenge for the title". The form of Eden Hazard is a big factor in what they're doing.

Arsenal return to action after the worldwide break by hosting Leicester a week on Monday (8pm).
