Jason Roberts & Peter Schmeichel optimistically discuss Arsenal’s Premier League title hopes on MOTD
Match of the Day pundits Jason Roberts and Peter Schmeichel discussed Arsenal’s title hopes on the Sunday night show, and the ex-pros were in agreement that the Gunners are frontrunners for the league title.
The panel were teed up to praise Arsene Wenger’s squad by the fact that the club have defied claims that they lack strength in depth as they presently soar from win to win despite Theo Walcott, Lukas Podolski, Alex Oxalde-Chamerblain and Mikel Arteta’s absence.
Jason Roberts was gushing in his praise for Gunners saying “Arsenal have a genuine chance now to win the league,” while Schmeichel (who noticeably didn’t directly comment of the North Londoners championship chances) said “Wenger has done tremendously well in the last transfer window. The clearout, people underestimate how important it is.”
