David James has surprisingly tipped Arsenal ahead of top English sides to win their first Premier League title since the 2003-04 season.
The Gunners will be targeting a top-four finish after ending the last campaign winning the FA Cup and opening the new season with the Community Shield.
However, the former Liverpool and Man City shot-stopper believes the north London club under Mikel Arteta will move a step further by clinch trophy in 16 years.
In an interview with The Gary Newbon Sport Show on Punching.TV, James said: "I just think with Arsenal, what Arteta was doing, or trying to implement last season and they started doing, he's had more time to get his team working well.
"I think Arteta's got an opportunity with a gifted squad to go all the way. There's no reason why they can't do it, other than Manchester City and Liverpool reproducing the sort of form they've been doing over the last two years."
And the former England number one added that the Reds may not be able to replicate their remarkable form in the last two seasons this time round.
"As everyone knows, winning the league is not easy," he added. "Winning the league twice is very, very difficult. When Liverpool have had almost two perfect seasons, you wonder whether they can reproduce that.
"As a football follower I just like what Arteta's doing and I think they've got the chance."
