De Zerbi names ‘best team’ in Premier League


Brighton manager, Roberto De Zerbi, has named Arsenal as the best team in the Premier League.

The two sides go head-to-head in Saturday’s late kick-off.

The Gunners won the reverse fixture 2-0 at the Emirates, thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus and Kai Havertz.

Mikel Arteta’s men are locked in a three-way title race, with just three points separating them, current leaders Liverpool, and defending champions Man City.

Despite rating Liverpool and Manchester City highly, De Zerbi has named Arsenal as the best team in England.

When asked if he believes Arsenal are the best team in the Premier League, the Seagulls boss said: “Yes. Liverpool are another great team with different characteristics and a different style.

“Man City are closer in style to Arsenal but I think when Arsenal play well, it’s very tough.

“You can understand my words because Arsenal won 3-1 against Liverpool [in February], beat Man City at home and in the Champions League they are doing very well.
