Sergio Aguero claims Arsenal are dark horses for the Premier League title as he hails their 'great project

Aguero worked under Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta during his time at the Etihad, and the former striker has high expectations for the Gunners this campaign. 'Everything will be very even, as it has been happening, but we will have to be attentive to Arsenal's performance, which has put together a great project with the help of Arteta and I think that this year they will give people something to talk about.' Meanwhile, the 34-year-old has also tipped fellow Argentinian Julian Alvarez to be a roaring success at his old club Manchester City. The Citizens signed the 22-year-old from River Plate in a deal worth £14million and the forward has already hit the ground running for Pep Guardiola's side. Alvarez looked bright for City during their 3-1 defeat to Liverpool in the Community Shield as he netted the Citizens' only goal of the game. The impressive performance came as no surprise to Aguero, who tips a bright future for Alvarez at the Etihad Stadium. Aguero said: 'Julian has all the conditions to succeed at City. He has already shown it in the two games he played in which he even scored a goal and against Liverpool no less. 'He is a quiet boy who seems shy but when it comes to training and going out to compete, he is one of the best. He works very hard, he gives everything and doesn't stop running. He is a locomotive and very eager to grow. 'The advice is to be himself. Let him listen and try to absorb all the teachings. With that and his ability, he will be able to compete at the best level.'
