Ex-Tottenham boss Rednapp: Arsenal won't survive Van Persie sale

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes Arsenal will struggle this season.

Redknapp rates Manchester City favourites for the title ahead of Manchester United.

Redknapp, who was recently appointed a Sky Sports Fantasy Football ambassador, said: "I suppose City will be favourites and then Man Utd, Chelsea and Tottenham again.

"Arsenal will be in for a tough season this year if they lose Van Persie, I think they’ve got it all to do and Tottenham could finish above them this year.

"[Sir Alex Ferguson] will want to win a trophy this year and they’ll push Man City all the way.

"I think Liverpool will do better. People say there’s a long rebuilding process going on at the club, but they’ll be there. They’ve got fantastic players in my opinion – [Luis] Suarez, [Andy] Carroll, [Steven] Gerrard, [Jamie] Carragher, Glen Johnson, a great goalkeeper in Pepe Reina and some good central defenders. They should be pushing for the top four."
