Gilberto Silva is backing Arsenal to end their long wait for a trophy by winning the Premier League this season.

The Gunners are currently four points clear at the top of the table following Wednesday night’s 2-0 win over Hull City at Emirates Stadium.

I am very confident they can achieve it this year

Gilberto Silva

Despite their flying start to the season, many continue to question Arsenal’s title credentials due to the north London club’s eight-year trophy drought.

But former Arsenal midfielder Gilberto is confident that Arsene Wenger can lead the club to a fourth league crown of the Frenchman’s reign.

“I watched them against Hull and they played a really nice game and very good football,” Gilberto told talkSPORT.

“It’s what we expect from them and I hope this year they can win the league. I’ll be here cheering them on and supporting them from outside England.

“They have the chance this year because they are doing very well at the moment. It’s important after December and when they start January that they keep playing well, strong as they are and united as they are.

“It will be very crucial but I am very confident they can achieve it this year.”
