Arsene Wenger has performed a “minor miracle” by transforming Arsenal into title contenders this season, according to Bob Wilson.

The Gunners head into the final 11 games of the season second in the Premier League table and just a point behind leaders Chelsea.

Wenger’s men are also in the hunt for silverware in the FA Cup and face a quarter-final clash against Everton next month.

If Arsenal could win the league this year, that would be an achievement to rank close to the ‘invincibles’ season

And former Arsenal goalkeeper Wilson believes that the Frenchman deserves credit for the way he has improved the Gunners this term.

“What Arsene has achieved with the [financial] constraints of the new stadium move, is truly amazing,” Wilson is quoted as saying by Metro.

“We know Manchester City have a sheikh and Chelsea have an oligarch and have won things because of the money they have spent – Chelsea had not won the league championship for 50 years before Roman Abramovich arrived – but the Mesut Ozil signing shows the Arsenal board can now make a statement.

“We now have to go into this area of paying £40m or £50m if you are really going to seriously challenge under a company run in a proper way against the bottomless pits [of wealthy owners].

“So when you put everything into perspective in terms of the money and where the game is at, then to even be challenging this season, a point behind Chelsea with the way the club is managed, is a minor miracle and a great feather in the cap for this squad of players.

“If Arsenal could win the league this year, then in my opinion that would be an achievement to rank close to the ‘invincibles’ season.”
