Thomas Tuchel names best team in EPL ahead of Arsenal vs Bayern Munich clash

 Bayern Munich manager, Thomas Tuchel, has said Arsenal are the best team in the Premier League.

Speaking ahead of their Champions League quarter-final first leg on Tuesday, Tuchel admitted his team is “a little behind” the Gunners.

Arsenal are top of the Premier League, while Bayern are 16 points behind Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga.

“Arsenal are currently the best team in the Premier League, all statistics prove that,” Tuchel said.

“They’re in fantastic form. They define themselves as a team. They’re also the best side in Europe from set pieces.

“We’re a little behind. They’re playing at a consistently high level for the second year in a row and they play with a lot of energy. There’s been a culture change under Arteta.”
