Gunners must win the Premier League title this season – Merson


Former Arsenal midfielder, Paul Merson, has said the Gunners must win the Premier League title to be remembered.

Mikel Arteta’s men came close to winning it last season after leading the table for over 240 days.

However, injuries and a loss of form saw Arsenal overhauled by Manchester City, who went on to complete a historic Treble.

Merson has now called on his former team to go one more step this campaign.

He told Sky Sports: “It’s alright having a good young team, who are continually impressing, but you’ve got to win something. Unless they do, this team won’t be remembered. No one talks about teams that don’t win leagues. It’s harsh, but that’s the reality.

“I do feel sorry for the Gunners because they are having to contend with the juggernaut that is Man City.
