Alex Song is hoping Arsenal will win the Premier League title this term following the Gunners’ strong start to the season.

The north Londoners are currently two points clear at the top of the table, despite Sunday’s 1-0 defeat by Manchester United at Old Trafford.

And Song, who spent seven seasons at Arsenal before joining Barcelona back in August 2012, is keen to see Arsene Wenger’s men lift the top-flight trophy for the first time since 2004.

“I always watch Arsenal play because I was there for seven years,” Song told BBC Sport.

“I think this year with the players that came in they have started very well. They are strong in the league.

“I hope this season they do very well. Hopefully they don’t have players injured because when you have many players injured it’s very difficult. This season hopefully they recover well and they win the league.”

The Cameroon international added: “Arsene needs to win the league because he’s done a very good job but at the end of the day you have to win.

“For him it would be a very, very good thing if they win many things this year. They are in a good way and for me I would love to see him win something.”
