Jamie Carragher: Arsenal have no chance of winning the title

Jamie Carragher believes that Arsenal have no chance of winning this season’s Premier League title.
The Gunners find themselves seventh in the table after four games, having failed to win since their opening-day victory over Crystal Palace.
It’s not just a physical thing with Arsenal, it’s a mental thing
Arsene Wenger has brought in a number of players to bolster his squad this summer, including Danny Welbeck, Alexis Sanchez and Calum Chambers.
But former Liverpool defender Carragher believes that the north London club are still a significant way behind title favourites Chelsea.
Carragher told Sky Sports: “I said start of the season, I don’t think Arsenal will win the title. The way I think of Arsenal is similar to Chelsea, one finished third one finished fourth. They probably spent similar money in the summer.
“Why didn’t Arsenal get [Diego] Costa? Danny Welbeck might be a good signing. They need a left back, Chelsea go to Atletico Madrid and get Filipe Luis. They just do what they need to do.
“They [Arsenal] don’t look as if they know how to see a game out. As soon as it went 2-2 [against Manchester City] I don’t fancy Arsenal to get a winner, I fancied City to win the game and they almost did.
“It’s not just a physical thing with Arsenal, it’s a mental thing and that even could be more important.”
