Arsenal Are Still Not Title Contenders – Alan Shearer
Arsenal are on an impressive six-game winning run in the league, and they looked very good against a very open Fulham team on Sunday.
But for Premier League legend, Alan Shearer, they are not a team that can challenge for the title.
He made this submission in his match day analysis.
“When I watch the Gunners, I don't see a team that can challenge for the title. In fact, I am still not sure they will make it into the top four," he said.
If you are a Manchester United fan, do not be quick to laugh, Shearer has worse words for you.
“You have to go further down the table to find Manchester United in eighth place and, much like Arsenal, I do not see them as title contenders at all.
“Of course, I did not expect to be saying that after only eight games. Before the season started I thought United and Liverpool would both be close to City this time.
“Now? Jose Mourinho's side are nowhere near.
“As I said on Match of the Day on Saturday, what has been happening at United this season has been embarrassing, right through the club.
“United have plenty of time to make up the ground they have lost on the leaders, but there is a reason they are already off the pace and, like the Gunners, I think their main aim now will just be to finish fourth,” he said.
While he thinks Chelsea might just be able to push for the title, Shearer believes Man City and Liverpool are still the teams to beat.
He, however, described Sunday's 0-0 draw at Anfield as a drab game that showed both managers were being too cautious.
This season is the first time three teams have had the same number of points at the top of the Premier League after eight games.Please share the story and WATCH the video below:
