Former Liverpool talent offers shock Arsenal Premier League title claim amid Mikel Arteta praise
Defeating Nottingham Forest on Sunday would allow Arsenal to reclaim first place in the Premier League.
Arsenal have the opportunity to return to the top of the Premier League this afternoon and bounce back after disappointing results against Southampton and PSV Eindhoven.
The Gunners have lost just two games so far this season as they look to get back to winning ways at the Emirates Stadium against Nottingham Forest. Gabriel Jesus has vowed to end his goal drought after the Brazilian urged his teammates to ‘stay calm’ heading into the final run of fixtures before the World Cup.
Arsenal and Tottenham are the two teams challenging reigning champions Manchester City at the top of the table, with Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool all languishing further down the table. Mikel Arteta will be hoping his team can get revenge for last season’s FA Cup defeat against Forest as they take on Steve Cooper’s side and aim to return to the top of the table heading into November.
The Gunners are winning over some of their harshest critics over the past few years with their impressive performances so far this season, but one former Liverpool talent has revealed he wants Arsenal to win their first Premier League title since 2004 this season. Brentford midfielder Sergi Canos, who is surprisingly one of those hoping that will be the case, admits he would love to see his London rivals lift the trophy.
“I see them doing very well,” Canos told Marca. “I like the way they work as a team, it’s a pleasure to watch them play.”
Canos spent three years at Anfield which included a successful loan spell with the Bees, before he permanently joined Arsenal’s London rivals in 2017. The Spaniard added: “Although they haven’t yet had that dip in performance that all teams tend to have.When that happens, they will have to show how strong they are as a group. I would like them to win the Premiership.”
