Tyren Arendse: It's between Wits & Downs to win the title
Former Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Tyren Arendse has suggested that Sundowns and Bidvest Wits are the favourite contenders to take the 2018/19 Absa Premiership title.
Arendse who two years at both Pirates and Sundowns form 2004-2008 also added that Cape Town City shouldn't be written off as they are the dark horse in this title race.
The 38-year-old went further and insinuated the fact that Kaizer Chiefs and Pirates are not title contenders despite both sides being in the running.
The Brazilians are currently leading the log by three points with Sea Robbers following a close second.
He told Sport24: "As I said, I think it's going to be between Sundowns and Wits to win it. But obviously, as a Cape Town boy and for Benni, I'd say also Cape Town City.
"I think he (Benni) is done with playing with Wits and Sundowns, but I think he might have a big say coming towards the end of the season.
"As for Chiefs and Pirates, there have been too many inconsistencies, you know. Pirates look decent and they look strong. But when you expect them to win games, they drop points.
"The way they play under Micho (Milutin Sredojevic), I think they play brilliant football but sometimes they need to just grind out the results. Sometimes that's what it takes to get to the top."
