English Premier League (EPL) club Arsenal have made a promising start to their 2016-17 Premier League campaign and are on course to win the league. They are level on points with table toppers Manchester City and look good to last the distance of the rigorous season.
The Premier League is extremely competitive and it shows in the current edition as well. Only one point differentiates the top five clubs in the league table and the race for the league crown promises to be a tight affair.
Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United legend recently revealed his admiration for the Gunners. The 74-year-old believes that Arsenal should not be underestimated in this season’s title race. According to the Scotsman, the Arsene Wenger managed team is looking sturdy this season. The players are looking more aggressive on the pitch.
“And you shouldn’t forget Arsenal. The team is more sturdy. They’ve got better and more aggressive.” Ferguson said, according to Sky Sports.
The words from the Premier League’s best manager must mean something for Arsenal, who have last won the league back in 2003-04 season. It has been over 13 years and the fans of the Gunners are desperate to taste success.
Ferguson’s achievements in the game of football can rarely be matched by his peers. What made his career more special was his ability to spot young talents and nurture them into global superstars. He did it with the likes of “The Class of 92” as well as Cristiano Ronaldo and more.
This should be inspiring for Arsenal striker Alex Iwobi who has been praised by the man from Govan, United Kingdom.
“I’m impressed with the young boy Alex Iwobi.” Ferguson added, as reported by Express.
If Arsene Wenger manages to keep his team from losing form during the later stages of the season, this could be the year when The Emirates Stadium finally tastes its first Premier League glory.
