Good morning Arsenal fans
Arsenal remain top of the Premier League table ahead of the 2022 World Cup break with five points ahead of second-placed and title rivals Manchester City.
The Gunners have amassed 12 wins out of 14 league matches, of which they have only lost one and will be back in action on Boxing Day against West Ham at the Emirates.
But Arsenal legend Arsene Wenger believes City will beat his former team for the Premier League title.
That is despite the legendary manager’s loyalties and the Gunners’ blistering start to their campaign.
Wenger told beIN Sports: “Yeah, personally I would put them just behind City. [Arsenal are] the second-best team to have a good chance to win the Premier League because Man City at some stage will focus highly on the Champions League.
“I think [Arsenal are City’s best challengers]. And after we don’t know about Liverpool but they are already 11 points behind and 10 points behind Man City is a mountain to climb.
And SunSport columnist Piers Morgan wants Arsenal to sign Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo after his explosive interview on Piers Morgan: Uncensored.
Morgan believes Ronaldo would lead the Gunners to the top of the Premier League alongside Gabriel Jesus.
Asked on Twitter if he hoped the North Londoners would sign CR7, the journalist responded: “Yes, actually.
“He’s exactly what we need. Ronaldo and Gabriel Jesus would take us to the title.”
Finally, United have joined Arsenal in the bidding war for Shakhtar Donetsk star Mykhailo Mudryk, as per SunSport’s Daniel Cutts.
SunSport understands United have been tracking Mudryk for a while, with scouts keeping watch, while manager Erik ten Hag has been keen on him since his days as Ajax boss.
However, Shakhtar are reluctant to let one of their prized assets go on the cheap, and would demand a substantial fee for the winger.
It is unlikely the Red Devils will go for the Ukraine international in January, after having major investment in the squad over the past summer.
