"If you'd asked me at the start of the season, I would have said, 'Yes, Manchester City are title favourites'," Clarke is quoted as saying by Goal.com.

"But, this far into the season, I'd say Arsenal. They look a good team who deserve to be where they are, they've a nice little gap at the top.

"Manchester City will be one of the teams competing for the title but, at the moment, Arsenal are in a good position."

West Brom are currently in 12th place in the Premier League.
