Sir Alex Ferguson believes that Arsenal have a “big chance” of ending their long wait to win the Premier League title this season.
The Gunners currently lead the way at the top of the table, a point from Manchester City, with 16 games left to play.
We’re into the second half of the season and Arsenal are still there

And former Manchester United boss Ferguson feels that Arsene Wenger’s side, who have not won the title since 2003-04, have already proved themselves as genuine contenders this term.
“You have to say Manchester City are playing so well, there is no dispute about that, but the teams at the top at the minute must have a big chance,” Ferguson told Sky Sports.
“Arsenal must have a big chance. Everyone keeps writing them off, saying they won’t last, but we’re into the second half of the season and they are still there.
“Then you’ve got Chelsea, Everton, Tottenham, who are starting to do well.”
Ferguson also backed his former side to come good in the second half of the season under new boss David Moyes, despite United trailing Arsenal by 14 points.
“United always do well in the second half of the season, so we’ve got a fantastic league and we should be proud of that,” he continued.
“United can do anything. They have got that great philosophy and history, they will always do well.
“I can watch the team whenever I want and I’ve really enjoyed it.
“I’m going as a supporter now and instead of suffering with the team, I’m suffering or enjoying it with the fans. I’m really enjoying watching the team play.”
