Robert Pires has recently come out to back Arsenal to take down Tottenham in their upcoming derby on Sunday.
The Gunners Legend is of the opinion that Arsenal make for a stronger team than rivals Chelsea and Tottenham.
Also, in what seems like an endorsement, Robert Pires has said that the Emirates stadium dwellers are ‘the best team in London’ and so therefore, there is definitely no reason why they can’t bring back the Premier League title this season to the Emirates Stadium.
Pires was amongst the last Gunners side that took the top-flight crown back during the 2003/04 season and since then, that squad has been known in football folklore as “The Invincibles.’
However, the 2016/17 squad will be unable to match that achievement as they have already lost one match. Yet, they are at present in second position on the table with 15 games unbeaten in all competitions so far. With the team’s high morale and momentum building, Arsenal seems to be in perfect shape for their derby game against North London rivals, the Spurs.
Pires believes in the Arsenal set-up, and has endorsed them to come out victorious. However, he sees this as one sterner test of the Gunners’ title credentials.
He words when speaking to the Evening Standard:
“For me yes, Arsenal are the best in London. Chelsea and Tottenham are strong and the Premier League will be tight this year. I don’t know what will happen at the end of the season but Arsenal can win the title, of course.
“For me they are a much better team than Tottenham but this season Tottenham have a good opportunity to do well. They have been playing well, especially when they beat City.”
So far, Tottenham has not been in their best of form as they have scored just two goals having in five last games. Six games also in all competitions have been with no wins. Still yet, Arsenal would be making a huge mistake to underestimate Tottenham.
