Torres backing Arsenal to win the League

Fernando Torres has revealed he is eager to see Arsenal take the Premier League title this season.

Liverpool had been expected to be among the challengers this year but, following Sunday's 1-1 draw with Birmingham, they now look likely to miss out on a place in the top four.

There is also the threat that Manchester United could clinch a record 19th league title this season - moving clear of Liverpool's 18 - but Torres feels Arsene Wenger can end his five-year wait for silverware this season.

"I want Arsenal to be the champions," he told Canal+. "They have the best fixtures of the three. Wenger deserves to win the title and to be imitated for his work he has done in his time there."

Chelsea are currently a point clear and face games against top-half opposition in the shape of Tottenham, Stoke and Liverpool while United have to take on Manchester City, Tottenham and Stoke.

Arsenal's only remaining games against top-half sides come against Tottenham and City, but Chelsea have three home games remaining while United and Arsenal have just two.
