Cesc Fabregas comments on Arsenal title chances as he reacts to Mikel Arteta’s tactics

Former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has been impressed with the performances of his former side across all competitions this term, tipping them for major silverware sooner or later.

The Gunners are top of the Premier League table after 31 games and are desperate to win their first title since 2004 after finishing second behind Manchester City last term.

Only a superior goal difference separates Arsenal from Liverpool, while they lead the reigning champions by a point.

Man City have failed to beat the North Londoners this term, with Arsenal winning their first two meetings and drawing their last one, and Fabregas loved what he saw from manager Mikel Arteta and his men.

“You see the way they are competing in a different manner,” the former midfielder told the Evening Standard.

“The way they prepared the game against City, even I didn’t expect it. I was expecting a completely different approach, but you see that they are managing maybe the situations a little bit better.

“They are getting this experience, the coaching staff and the players, to find different solutions. It is great to see and I do think they are very close to getting something very soon.

“They are on the right way, 100 per cent they are getting there, 100 per cent they are now Arsenal. You go around Europe, you speak to coaches, top teams, fans and they will all say that Arsenal are one of the best teams to watch and compete.”

The Gunners are slowly establishing themselves as a force to reckon with in the Premier League once again after several years of mediocre campaigns, and they have a real chance to finally win the title after two decades of drought.

They have some tough games remaining, with matches against Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester United expected to pose huge threats, but Arsenal will fancy their chances given their impressive form since the start of the year.

The Gunners cannot afford to stutter right now having been largely consistent for the majority of the campaign, and they now have to maintain their form and get over the finishing line as title winners.
