Former-Arsenal player, Robin Van Persie is the latest person to give his thoughts on the Premier League title race between Arsenal and Manchester City, with ten games to go…
Robin Van Persie played 278 times for Arsenal across eight years spent in North London. The Dutchman scored 132 goals & assisted 58 times under Arsene Wenger and eventually was made Arsenal captain in 2011 after Cesc Fabregas’ departure.
He later left for rivals Manchester United in order to win the Premier League title, which he achieved at the Red Devils in 2012/13, however he still keeps a close eye on how the Gunners are getting on.
The Dutch forward is widely regarded as one of the best attackers Arsenal have had in the last 15 years, despite the switch he made to Manchester United which didn’t go down too well at the time.
Robin Van Persie on the Premier League title race this season…
“If you look at this period in time this is where every single point counts. They’ve had a couple of difficult games and got three points there and that’s what a champions team is made of. They’ve been proving that.
But the last stretch is always the difficult one. But my personal feeling is that they’ll go for it and they’ll do it and win the league. It’s been a while, so I’m happy for them to win it.”
Robin Van Persie makes a good point about the big games Arsenal have won recently. Questions have been asked and so far, the Gunners have answered them.
With ten games to go & Arsenal currently sitting eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table, there’s no doubt the Gunners are now favourites to win their first league title in 19 years & Robin Van Persie backs the club to do just that.
