Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal can win the Premier League under Mikel Arteta and admits he is surprised at the level of investment in the squad in recent seasons.
Arsenal have started the league campaign with nine points from a possible 12 and are currently fourth in the table – three points behind surprise leaders Everton.
The Gunners next face Manchester City on Saturday, live on Sky Sports, and Wenger believes Arteta has enough quality in his squad to end the club’s 16-year wait for the title.
“I genuinely believe yes, because he looks to have a good grip on the team,” said Wenger – speaking to Geoff Shreeves at a special event for Sky VIP customers on Monday.
“They follow well, they are with him. We have bought well, spent a lot of money in the last two years. Suddenly we discovered huge resources – that was quite surprising.
