Chris Sutton says only injuries to key men will stop Arsenal from winning the league

Arsenal heads into the World Cup break at the top of the Premier League table and it is now hard not to think they can win the title.

The Gunners took advantage of Manchester City’s slip at the weekend to move five points clear at the top of the league table.

Their performance this season has been helped by the form of some key players in Mikel Arteta’s squad.

Arsenal does not boast of the squad depth some of their rivals have and Chris Sutton believes the key to their success this season will be keeping their players fit.

He writes in his column for the Daily Mail:

“Mikel Arteta will look to strengthen in the transfer window, sensing the opportunity. 

“But if the bulk of Arsenal’s XI can stay fit, from Jesus to Zinchenko to Martin Odegaard, then why can’t they compete with Manchester City for the title? City have made mistakes and Arsenal are capitalising.

“Arteta will downplay their chances. He will not want to pile any pressure on his players. But all of football is looking at Arsenal now as title contenders.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have enjoyed the performance of some top players in our squad this season and it will be important to have them stay fit.

This World Cup is a competition that could affect the fitness of our players. We just pray they return in good shape.

If we stay focused and do not lose our momentum, we will perform well in the second half of the season.

  1. Ayone else concerned about Saka, Saliba or Martinelli having exceptionally good world cups before their contracts are sorted out?

    1. It will almost be back to square one if we loose any of these brilliant young footballers and some rumours are that PSG is sniffing around for two of Arsenal players as a replacement for Messi and Ramos coz they will be leaving PSG at the end of the season

  2. Yes PJ-SA, I have big concerns, every attempt must be made to resolve the contract of these three.

    Had suggested that attempt should be made to extend Martinelli contract first then the others.

    We are on top of the league that should make things a little easier.

    Between £150 – 200 grand a week is market rate for these three marquee players

  3. If they don’t sign then we sell to the highest bidder.

    We should not be forced into paying over the odds ito wages.

    Promising young players with bright futures but nothing more at the moment.

    Maybe in 3 years they could be worth 200k but not at the moment.

    Management screwed up by giving Nkeitah 100k pw.
