Garth Crooks has told Arsenal to forget about winning the Premier League title this season despite Saturday’s 3-0 win against Bournemouth.

The Gunners made a return to winning ways at the Emirates Stadium following back-to-back Premier League defeats on the road before the international break.

Arsenal lost 1-0 to Stoke City in their first Premier League game on the road before the Gunners suffered a resounding 4-0 loss to title rivals Liverpool at Anfield.

Arsene Wenger came under fire following Arsenal’s lacklustre performance against Jurgen Klopp’s side which saw the north London outfit concede eight goals in their opening three Premier League games.

The Gunners returned to winning ways on Saturday afternoon after Arsenal were comfortable 3-0 winners against Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium courtesy of goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Danny Welbeck.

The FA Cup holders haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 when Wenger’s side completed an unbeaten season en route to lifting their top-flight crown.

Former Spurs forward Crooks ruled out Arenal winning the Premier League title this season.

“Arsenal might have brushed aside Bournemouth but until the Gunners have genuine finishers in the team they can forget about Premier League titles,” Crooks told BBC Sport.

Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a place in the Champions League.

The Gunners signed Lacazette and Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac in the summer transfer window.
