Wright tips Arsenal for title win

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright predicts the Gunners will win this season's Premier League title, even though he admits Chelsea will start as favourites.

Wright, who scored 221 goals for Arsenal, believes Arsene Wenger's side will need to start better than last season to have any chance of challenging for the top spot.

Gary Lineker and Match of the Day return to BBC One on Saturday 8 August, heralding the start of the new Premier League season and a host of football content across the BBC. Arsenal legend Wright returns to the team and will take his place alongside Alan Shearer, Danny Murphy, Ruud Gullit, Martin Keown and Jermaine Jenas.

MOTD celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, watched by more than 25 million viewers, and the BBC signed a new three-year deal for Premier League highlights through to the end of the 2018/19 season.

It forms a big part of the football rights portfolio on BBC television that includes live FA Cup coverage until 2018, the World Cup through to 2022, and regular women's football.
