Freddie Ljungberg rates Arsenal’s chances of winning title this season


Former Arsenal winger, Freddie Ljungberg has doubts about whether the Gunners can end their title drought this season under manager Mikel Arteta.

Arsenal are searching for their first league triumph since 2004.

Arteta’s side moved top of the Premier League table on Saturday after beating Brentford 1-0.

However, Ljungberg is concerned by Arsenal’s attack, with Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus, Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli all down on their goals-per-minutes ratio when compared with last season.

“I think definitely they are ready to challenge for the title,” Ljungberg said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

“But the stats here are quite telling and I don’t think they work in their favour,” the retired footballer added as he looked at Arsenal’s attacking numbers.
