Former Liverpool and England defender, and current Sky Sports pundit, Jamie Carragher admitted that he wants Arsenal to win the Premier League this season.
Speaking on Sky Sports yesterday Carragher said, “I would love to see Arsenal win the Premier League.
“It’s nice to talk about different teams doing different things and for a lot of the time I’ve been with Sky Sports, Arsenal haven’t been particularly good and I’ve had to be quite negative about them.
“But look at the start of the season they’ve had: one defeat, one draw and the rest they’ve won – and that defeat they didn’t deserve to lose.
“It’s good to see a different team up there, a different story. I really like what Mikel Arteta has done, I interviewed him a few weeks ago and it went really well.
“I love watching his team pay. They’re young players, have lots of energy, it’s exciting and it’s fast. When they’re on TV, you want to watch them. I would love them to go on and do it.”
Following on from Carragher’s comments yesterday, Arsenal are currently sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League with a seven point gap on second placed Manchester City.
Mikel Arteta’s side have won their last five fixtures in the league and welcome Newcastle United to Emirates Stadium on Tuesday hoping to make it six victories on the bounce.
