The former Arsenal manager believes that the situation won’t be as favorable next season and Arsenal must seize this chance
Arsenal legend Arsene Wenger has spoken about the Gunners’ title chances, urging to not “miss the opportunity” while most of the rivals are having an off-season.
Wenger praises Arsenal’s ‘remarkable’ season
The Gunners’ great run of form has been stunted by two back to back disappointing results against Everton and Brentford. Despite this, tehy are 3 points off of second-place Man City with a game in hand. Arteta’s men will be facing rivals City tomorrow and their former manager Wenger believes that they have to seize this opportunity and win the league.
Wenger praised Arsenal’s “remarkable” start to the season but feels like they have to keep pushing as most of the rivals aren’t having the best of seasons.
“You win it when you can win it and you don’t care too much about the rest you take the title and let the rest talk about it,” the Frenchman told beIN Sports.
“I agree the conditions next season won’t be as favourable as they are now so let’s not miss this opportunity. Arsenal has 51 points after 21 games, which is remarkable. I feel the usual threats are all out of the race. The only threat is City and even City is now not as dominant as they were last year or two years before, and I feel since the start of the season City was more vulnerable defensively than before.”
Arsenal and Man City haven’t met in the league this season. But their only clash came in FA Cup’s fourth round when an unlikely Nathan Ake goal sent the Citizens through.
