Ian Wright: What Arsenal must do to win Premier League title
The Arsenal legend says the Gunners players must match Alexis Sanchez's application in the title race
Ian Wright believes the Arsenal squad need to match Alexis Sanchez’s application if Arsene Wenger is to end his Premier League title drought this season.
The Gunners temporarily hoisted themselves above Chelsea and into top spot in the Premier League table thanks to a 3-1 win against Stoke City at The Emirates on Saturday ahead of Chelsea’s home clash against West Brom on Sunday afternoon.
Theo Walcott cancelled out Charlie Adam’s opener from the penalty spot in the first half before Mesut Ozil and Alex Iwobi netted second-half goals to seal three points for the north London side.
Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 14 Premier League games since a 4-3 loss to title rivals Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium in their opening fixture of the 2016-17 season.
Asked on BBC One’s Match Of The Day show whether Arsenal can win the Premier League title this season, Wright said:
“I want to see that in May. What’s got to happen is the same levels of output as Alexis Sanchez in terms of wanting to do it and wanting to win it. If Arsenal can do that they have a good chance,” Wright told BBC One’s Match Of The Day show.
Arsenal finished in second place in the Premier League table last season but 10 points behind champions Leicester City.
