“If Arsenal lose it from here” Savage says it’s Arsenal’s Premier League to lose now

Former Manchester United man Robbie Savage insists Arsenal must win the Premier League now after their superb 2-0 win against Tottenham this evening.

The Gunners have had a fantastic season, beating most of the clubs outside the European places, but they have also done well in games against their top-four rivals.

After winning against Liverpool and at Chelsea, the Gunners went to Spurs, earned all three points this evening and are now eight points clear of Manchester City.

Mikel Arteta’s men are in dreamland and after the win against the Lilywhites, Savage insists this is the time Arsenal must win the league.

He said on BBC5 Live:

“If Arsenal lose it from here. They’ve bottled it!”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We must not put our players under pressure to win the league because that expectation could become too much for them to handle.

For now, we need to keep winning one game at a time as the season proceeds and we will see how far we can eventually go.

The truth is that this team makes us feel so confident they can win the title, but the players must leave the dream to the fans and focus on winning one game at a time.

  1. Stupid thing for Savage to say. An 8 point lead with half the season left is not “bottling’ territory.

    At least the pundits are finally admitting we are genuine title contenders. I guess they’ve been so quick to declare ManU as contenders that they would look like muppets if they continued to say we weren’t.

    1. Yep, Savage is a bit rubbish even for a football pundit.

      I remember a few years ago him and Thierry Henry were pundits on a show and the presenter asked Henry about the teams he played in, how skilful they were, Savage interrupted Henry’s answer with “Yeah but when you played us we gaev you a really hard time, didn’t let you play, did we?”.

      He was obviously fishing for some compliment about how tough they were. Henry, replied, totally dead-pan “We managed”.

      Put Savage in his place so completely with two words. The whole studio fell about laughing, even Savage.

  2. Feet on the ground, head out of the clouds!!!!!!! We secumbed to pressure last term, we have yet to get to the pressure stage yet. We are enjoying it and riding the wave, we are playing once a week. So far so good, the sqeaky bum time is still to come. The EL and FA cup will also stretch everything. A striker and a midfielder will help tremendously. We are actively interested in Trossard, Tielemans, Zaha, ndicka and Teremi. We may end up with none of them but we need a couple of quality additions. I personally would like us to test Fulham with 25 mil for Mitrovic but i doubt we will. Some of the above could be summer signings but are we desperate enough to try and buy.

    1. Essentially we need to replicate the Spurs window from last January. An attacker the quality of Kulusevski and a midfielder the quality of Betancour would do nicely.

  3. There is a winger that plays for Napoli his name Kvaratskhelia, strong and physical would be interesting to test their resolve.

    1. Yeah,he is known as Kavra, Georgian winger.from what I’ve read he has taken Série A by storm.Napoli paid 10M but knowing their president,he will ask for 100M€ or close to!

    2. He’s absolute class – with napoli challenging for the league, it’s hard to see them selling mid season, though.

  4. I don’t want to wake up in this fantasy dream. Bring on MANU and CITY while am still sleeping. Let the morning come towards the end of April. Please someone should wake me by then.

  5. The fact of course is that this season our first team is very strong.
    The main reason for not being able to maintain this form will be the limited squad depth.
    However, a simplistic and meaningless narrative based on “they bottled it” is favoured by pundits and many fans.
    There is little doubt that if we can strengthen effectively we will be clear favourites. The Mudryk ‘fiasco’ however demonstrates the complicated situation Arsenal are in.

  6. Arteta has started the same first eleven for almost every game in the League, that will not be sustainable as the season goes on with the small matter of the Fa Cup and UEL to contend with. Need at least two signings to help carry us over the line, bring in Neves, Lindstrom, N’dicka pre contract agreement and we can really do this.
