Arsenal ace discounts title rivals

Teams are dropping like flies out of the Premier League title race and it could be a two-horse battle for the trophy, according to one Arsenal star.

French defender Laurent Koscielny is currently in his first season with the Gunners and is hoping to win the big prize in English football during his debut campaign.
Manchester United are topping the Premier League and are unbeaten despite failing to hit top form consistently throughout the season so far – which has to be worrying for their title rivals.

Arsenal are looking the closest challenges at this point in time, though they are three points back themselves, after Manchester City dropped points against Birmingham and Chelsea have ground to claw back after their poor recent run.

The Premier League has looked as open as ever in recent years, with even United going close to defeat on a few occasions. But whereas their rivals are losing games, Sir Alex Ferguson's men are capable of clawing victory from the jaws of defeat anyone looking at the weekend Premier League betting should remember this.

Koscielny claims it will be a "big battle" between United and Arsenal over the rest of the season and "anything can happen" in the title race.

The defender stated: "It looks like we are the last challengers to United. We have got more points than Manchester City, Chelsea and the others.

"We need to focus on our game, keep winning, keep picking up points and maybe United will lose games at some point."

The Premier League betting offers make Manchester United firm favourites, but Arsenal haven't given up hope.

While Koscielny thinks it is a two-horse battle other seem to think there are still more teams involved. Wayne Rooney himself has said he still counts Chelsea as real Premier League title race challengers – especially considering their £50 million capture of Fernando Torres.
