Former Man United star: Arsenal have great Premier League title chance

Arsenal have a great chance of winning the Premier League title this season, according to Johnny Giles.

Arsene Wenger’s side are in second place and a point behind surprise leaders Leicester City ahead of their clash against Aston Villa at Villa Park on Sunday.

Arsenal have a better chance of winning the title this year then they have had for a long time

The Gunners returned to winning ways last weekend thanks to a 3-1 win against Sunderland at The Emirates after a two-game winless run before the visit of the Black Cats.

Former Leeds United and Manchester United midfielder Giles is adamant that the north London side won’t need to be too consistent to have a shot at winning the Premier League crown.

“All the other teams have been inconsistent,” Giles told Newstalk’s Off The Ball.

“This time last year, Chelsea were running away with it. Noone is running away with it.

“Arsenal have a better chance of winning the title this year then they have had for a long time. I don’t think they’ll need to be particularly consistent.”

Arsenal sealed their Champions League group-stage comeback on Wednesday night thanks to a 3-0 victory over Olympiacos in Greece.
