Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere believes the Gunners are the favourites to win the Premier League title despite the club currently occupying 3rd position on the log table.
The midfielder who is currently recovering from a knee injury believes the Gunners are in the best position to win the league when asked if the Gunners are the title favourites, as per sport review.
Arsenal who were top of the table dropped to fourth position after failing to win any of their games against Stoke City, Chelsea and Southampton in January but back to back wins against Leicester City and Bournemouth have brought Wenger’s men to third position, two points behind table toppers Leicester City.
In an interview with BT Sport on Saturday morning, the midfielder said:
“I think Sunday was massive for us (beating Leicester).
“Eight points down would have been a long way back. People are saying are Leicester going to do it, go the whole way? But they beat Manchester City, then came here and gave us a really good game, so we have to take them seriously,”
“I still think in my head we are favourites but with that comes pressure. So whether we feel that or not is the question.”
Arsenal will resume their Premier League fixture against Manchester United on Sunday at Old Trafford.
