Stuart Pearce: Why Arsenal are on the verge of something special
Stuart Pearce has been impressed by what he has seen from Arsenal so far this season
Stuart Pearce believes that Arsenal are on the verge of creating another “dynasty” after their impressive win over Manchester City on Monday night.
Goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud secured a 2-1 victory for Arsene Wenger’s men and kept them in second place in the Premier League table, two points behind surprise leaders Leicester City.
Arsenal have been installed as the favourites to win the Premier League title following Monday’s result as the north London side look to win the league for the first time since their unbeaten triumph in 2003-04.
And former England international Pearce feels that Wenger’s side are on the verge of creating something special.
Pearce told talkSPORT: “What Monday’s result shows, is that Manchester City are too inconsistent to win the league this season, and that Arsenal are the most stable football club in the country at the moment.
“They’ve won the FA Cup for two years running, their stadium is outstanding, their training ground is outstanding, their bank balance is outstanding and they have consistency with the manager.
“I think it is Arsenal’s title to lose at this moment, especially with all the other teams around them falling away a touch, with Chelsea being in semi-crisis and the unrest at Manchester United.
“I think Wenger, with this group of players, could be on the verge of creating another dynasty at the club.”
Arsenal return to Premier League action with a trip to Southampton on Boxing Day, before hosting Bournemouth at Emirates Stadium on 28 December.
The Gunners finished third in the English top flight last season and won the FA Cup for the second year running.
