Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit feels this season's title race will be decided between three teams.

Petit has ruled Manchester United out the Premier League battle and reckons three teams will compete for top honours.

"It's between Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City," Petit told the Daily Star.

"Liverpool's first XI is very good. The season will be long and they are not playing Champions League games but the fact is they are a little bit outnumbered, especially if Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge or Steven Gerrard get injured.

"Chelsea can challenge, definitely. It will be a perfect return for Jose Mourinho if they win the Premier League."
