EPL Tim Sherwood picks surprise club to challenge Man City for title if Arsenal fails. In the event that Arsenal does not win the Premier League this season, Tim Sherwood, the former manager of Tottenham Hotspur, has selected Newcastle United to battle Manchester City for the championship.
Due to their absence from European competition, Sherwood thinks Newcastle will present a formidable challenge this season.
The Magpies have a less demanding schedule than Man City and Arsenal since they did not make the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League last season.
They are presently third on the log, after Arsenal and Man City.
“Have we got a title race if it’s not Arsenal? Who will it be if it isn’t Arsenal? Because I believe Newcastle would have a better chance. Sherwood told Premier League Productions, “The reason I say it is not because they are third, although of course they are (via HITC).
But the Champions League doesn’t exist. not the Europa League. They will get stronger. They will be at least third heading through Christmas if they win this weekend. An opportunity exists.
