Lauren backs Arsenal to beat Chelsea to the Premier League title

Published 12/12/16 

The Gunners have made a strong start to the new campaign as they look to win the title for the first time since Lauren was still playing for the Gunners back in 2003-04.

Chelsea have also been in good form under new boss Antonio Conte and have established themselves as one of the favourites to win the Premier League this season.

However, former Arsenal defender Lauren feels that Arsene Wenger’s men have shown enough to suggest that they could be set to end their long wait for the title this term.

“I was surprised that Arsenal managed to go through the month of November without defeat and this shows that the team is now growing in confidence and belief.

“I think they have now learnt from past mistakes and I am convinced they stand a chance of winning the title.

“If you look at the top, Chelsea have a lead that can be reduced any time. I don’t think it is a huge gap for Arsenal and those chasing from behind.”

Arsenal won the FA Cup in 2014 and 2015 but have not lifted the Premier League trophy since their move to Emirates Stadium from Highbury back in 2006.
