Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has backed Arsenal to win the Premier League title this season due to Arsenal’s successful exploits in the transfer market.

Arsenal have emerged as the early Premier League leaders after winning five of their opening six games and Wenger believes Mikel Arteta’s side can go on to win the Premier League title because there is no team dominating the Premier League this season.

Wenger also believes that Arsenal no longer have any weaknesses that would prevent them from challenging for a long-awaited Premier League title.

“I would say they are moving in the right direction,” said Wenger at an event to promote former Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein’s new book Calling the Shots.

“I honestly think there is no weak position in the team. They are young, promising players and they have bought well this year. There is no completely dominating team this season and Arsenal has a chance with the potential that is there.

“We used to be in the top four and why not again? You cannot even rule out the fact that they can fight for the title and hopefully they can do it.”

Wenger won three league titles and seven FA Cups during his legendary 22-year spell in charge of Arsenal.
