Arsenal legend fancies Liverpool going on to win the Premier League title

Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Liverpool can make the push for the Premier League title this season after missing out to Manchester City by the slimmest of margins last term. The Reds accumulated a record club tally of 97 points last season, but that was not sufficient to hand them a maiden Premier League title with the Citizens outclassing them by the single point.

At the end of the day, they lost the league by a point and what I’m making of this, is that what Liverpool learnt from last season is how important it is to not drop points when you have the opportunity to win games at home, that’s what it’s going to come down to.”

BBC Sport pundit doubtful about Arsenal’s pursuit of Wilfried Zaha

BBC Sport pundit David Ornstein has said that he would be surprised, if Arsenal are able to land the signature of Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace this summer. The Ivorian has been earmarked as the club’s prime target for the transfer window but so far, they have failed with an opening offer worth £40m for the 26-year-old.

Speaking to Arseblog, Ornstein told that the club are not close to making any new signings and he would be staggered, should Zaha head to the Emirates this summer. He added that Malcom has been earmarked as the alternative from Barcelona and a deal could work out with Gunners chief Raul Sanllehi holding a good association with the Blaugrana.
