Everyone is still writing off the North London’s club of winning the league, but we ask the questions can the Gunners finally win the league for the first time since 2009. With just under a quarter of the Premier League season gone, former Arsenal attacker Paul meson was commenting on Arenal post Liverpool win at the Emirates Stadium last month.

“This is a good young team, they just need to stay fit, I honestly thought this was going to be a harder game than the Tottenham game and they have come through it. It’s another tick in the box.

“They’ve come back from the loss to Manchester United and they have bounced back with back-to-back wins. Who knows what could happen?

“Every one of the players is playing with a lot of confidence. Every one of the players is playing to the best of their ability.

“They’ve started really well and there is a long way to go, they have played three big teams, lost to United but have gone and beaten Tottenham and Liverpool so I could not speak highly enough of this team, and it’s a young team as well.”

Gary Neville was also talking on his podcast with Sky Sports and also commented on this young Gunners side,

“I don’t think they will win the league. Man City will win this league by a street by the end. Arsenal are having to go at full pelt to stay with them.

“There are good signs but the tough part of the season is still to come. There is a long way to go and this is definitely not the time to get carried away if you are an Arsenal fan.

“But there is definitely a spirit building and these fans can see a team and manager which is going places.”

There’s no doubt about it, but this is a different Arsenal side and you have to take your hat off to them and what their young manager Mikel Arteta has done. Can they go the distance though, the real test will come when the busy season comes and post World Cup and when they finally go up against Pep Guardiola.

That will make or break this Arsenal side, interesting times at North London..
