Sol Campbell: Arsenal can’t compete for Premier League title

Former Arsenal centre-half Sol Campbell says the Gunners don't have enough to win the Premier League title

Arsenal can’t compete with Manchester City and Manchester United for the Premier League title, according to Sol Campbell.

The Gunners signed Petr Cech in an £11m deal from Chelsea in July but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger failed to add any more signings to his squad.

The trouble with Arsenal is they’ve just got to get everyone fit. That’s the trouble already – there’s a few players out and we haven’t got that depth

City, meanwhile, snapped up Raheem Sterling, Nicolas Otamendi and Kevin De Bruyne in big-money deals, and United added six new players, including £36m signing Anthony Martial.

And former Arsenal defender Campbell, who was part of Wenger’s most-recent title-winning side in 2004, doesn’t believe the Gunners have the depth to challenge their rivals.

“You can’t compete with them,” Campbell is quoted as saying by Four Four Two. “Man United had to spend money and it’s not worth talking about Man City because they’re in a different type of galaxy.

“Doesn’t always bring you success though. The trouble with Arsenal is they’ve just got to get everyone fit. That’s the trouble already – there’s a few players out and we haven’t got that depth.”

Wenger guided Arsenal to third place and back-to-back FA Cup crowns last season.

The Gunners also beat defending Premier League champions Chelsea in the Community Shield in August.

However, the north London side have won just two of their opening four games in the Premier League.

Arsenal were 1-0 winners against Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon.
