Paul Scholes has suggested that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be "under massive pressure" if he fails to deliver the Premier League title this season.

Arsenal slipped to a third successive defeat as they lost against Swansea in the Premier League on Wednesday night, with BT Sport pundit Scholes unforgiving in his condemnation of Wenger's latest title push.

"This season, I was a little bit conned by Arsenal," said Scholes. "The added a bit of steal with (Petr) Cech and (Mesut) Ozil was coming into his own. I thought they might go on to win it, but they always seems to lose their bottle.

"If Wenger gets to the season and they haven't won the league this year, he has to be under big pressure."

Meanwhile, Scholes suggested he still fancies Manchester City to put together a late surge of form that could see them snatch the Premier League title from the chasing pack....with his former Man Utd team-mate suggesting Leicester will complete their fairy tale run.

"I still going to go for City," added Scholes. "They still have the best squad of players and if they win their game in hand, they are seven points behind."
