Ex-Gunner: Why Arsenal can’t win the league

A former Arsenal player has admitted that the Gunners can be heartbreaking to support and as they chase the title again. 

Arsene Wenger’s men are still waiting for their first Premier League title since winning the crown without losing a game in the 2003/04 campaign.

Last season, Arsenal spurned an opportunity to end that drought as they surrendered the title to surprise winners Leicester City despite the struggles of major rivals like Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.

Arsenal appear to be back in the hunt for glory this season after a bright start but Emmanuel Petit, who spent three years as a Gunner, insists his old club are still not favourites this year.

“Even though I love Arsenal and Arsene, I try to stay objective,” Petit told SFR Sport. “They never quite satisfy me, and they often frustrate me.

“As long as Arsenal don’t have a striker who scores 40 goals a season like Aguero does at Manchester City. That’s what you need in any league: a striker who is one of the best in the world.”
