Arsene Wenger gives two reasons why Arsenal have a ‘good chance’ of tasting Premier League glory for the first time in 19 years


Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal can take advantage of the absence of a ‘super dominant team’ and win their first Premier League title since 2004.

Arsenal have been in blistering form so far this season, winning six of their seven games, the only blemish being a 3-1 defeat at Manchester United earlier in September.

Reigning Premier League champions Manchester City are second – one point behind the Gunners, while Arsenal’s next opponents Tottenham are third.

The legendary former Arsenal boss believes the mid-season break – due to the World Cup – could help his former side in their quest for the title, while hinting that Pep Guardiola’s side are not the strength she has shown in recent seasons.

“I would say they have a good chance this season because I don’t see any super dominant teams,” Wenger told Sky Sports. “I think it’s a good opportunity to do that this season.

“Of course it’s also a bit special season because you have the World Cup in the middle and you don’t know how much it will affect the performance of individual players and teams. Overall I think there is a good opportunity there this season.

Although Arsenal clinched the pacemakers crown at the start of the season, boss Mikel Arteta refused to be drawn into any title talk after their convincing 3-0 win at Brentford last time out.

Arteta said, “You can ask me every day. Today we are top of the league, I’m so happy.

“Yesterday I was so pissed because we lost him [against Manchester United] and we used it today because we want to go back and show that we want to be there and that’s what we’re going to do.

“Push to be the best you can be and that’s the goal and the table won’t lie after 38 games.”

The return from the international break offers the Gunners a real test of their titles when Tottenham and Liverpool visit the Emirates Stadium in back-to-back weeks and tricky trips to Leeds, Wolves and Chelsea all to come before kick-off. the World Cup in November. .
