Ian Wright makes prediction about Arsenal’s Premier League title chances
Ian Wright pours cold water on talk of Arsenal winning the Premier League title this season
Ian Wright has rubbished Arsenal’s chances of winning the Premier League title.
The Gunners suffered a demoralising 3-2 defeat by bitter rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
I do not watch them and see a team that has what it takes to win the title
Arsenal’s loss in Manchester compounded a disappointing week of results after a stalemate with Championship side Hull City in the FA Cup and a 2-0 loss to Barcelona in the Champions League.
The north London side are five points behind leaders Leicester following their defeat at Old Trafford ahead of Wednesday night’s clash against Swansea City.
Speaking on Match Of The Day 2 on Sunday night, Wright explained why he doesn’t have confidence in Arsene Wenger’s side in the remaining 11 games of the Premier League title race.
“Arsenal’s defeat at Manchester United was especially disappointing because it showed they do not have the mental strength to deal with being where they are at in the title race,” Wright told BBC Sport.
“Gunners fans know they have a fantastic opportunity to win the Premier League this season, but the team does not seem to understand the enormity of their situation, and what it requires.
“There are still 11 games to go but, as things stand, I do not watch them and see a team that has what it takes to win the title.”
Arsenal haven’t won the Premier League title since 2004.
The Gunners have won back-to-back FA Cup crowns in 2014 and 2015.
Wenger’s side have failed to reach the Champions League quarter-finals since 2010.
