Arsène Wenger, former Arsenal manager, was interviewed by sky sports. The Frenchman, who now works at FIFA, sees his old team as the best placed to finish first in the Premier League.
Leader of the Premier League, with 6 wins in 7 games, Arsenal seems “have a good chance” to win the league title this season: “I would say they have a lot of chances this season because I don’t see any super dominants.” Arsène Wenger starts, while Manchester City (2nd) have won 5 times in 7 games and Chelsea and Liverpool are down (7th and 8th). “I think it’s a good opportunity to do that this season. Of course, it’s also a bit of a special season because you have the World Cup in the middle and you don’t know how much it will affect the performance of the players and teams. All in all, I think there’s a good opportunity there.” Arsene Wenger had already indicated to see the Gunners fight for the title.
After the international break, Arsenal will face Tottenham (3rd) and then Liverpool (8th) in the league.
