Robbie Savage sends blunt warning to Arsenal ahead of Leicester clash
Robbie Savage has a warning for Arsene Wenger...
Robbie Savage has warned that Arsenal cannot afford to blow their hopes of winning the Premier League title this season.
The Gunners are currently third in the Premier League table as they prepare for Sunday’s crunch clash with Leicester City at Emirates Stadium.
The north London side have not won the top-flight crown since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 season and are being tipped by many to be on course towards ending their long wait for the trophy this season.
And Savage has warned that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will have “nowhere to hide” if he fails to steer his side to the title this season.
Writing in his column for the Daily Mirror, Savage said: “Arsene Wenger will run out of excuses, and have nowhere to hide, if Arsenal bottle another title challenge. What valid excuses can Wenger possibly offer if the Gunners come up short again?
“He’s had £200m in the bank, he has nicked Petr Cech off Chelsea for buttons and, more than once, Arsenal have been sitting pretty at the top this season.
“If they blow it again, you wonder if Wenger will ever win another league title.”
Arsenal, who finished third and won the FA Cup last season, take on Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League later this month.
The Gunners know that victory over Leicester on Sunday will move them two points off top spot heading into the final 12 games of the season.
