Teddy Sheringham has claimed that Arsenal still have what it takes to pip both Tottenham and Leicester to the Premier League title this season.

The Gunners have struggled to find consistent form in recent weeks and a miserable run of just one win in eight games in all competitions dumped the north London side out of all the cups and left Arsene Wenger’s men with just the Premier League to play for.

Arsenal are currently third in the table and 11 points behind leaders Leicester City heading into the final few games of the season, although the Gunners have played one match less than both the Foxes and Spurs.

Tottenham are currently six points ahead of their bitter local rivals.

However, former Tottenham and Manchester United man Sheringham feels that Arsenal cannot be written off in the closing stages of the season.

Sheringham is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror: “They [Arsenal] have been there before, they know what it takes.

“For Leicester and Spurs, this is new territory. The closer the end of the season comes, the more nerve will be a factor.”

He added: “Experience is key in this situation – and that is why I would not rule Arsenal out of contention. They know what it takes. They have won the title and know all about the pressure. And they are still up there, despite numerous ­injuries.”
