Former Arsenal striker Andrei Arshavin, who was once the club’s record signing, has stated that he feels confident that Arsenal will finally be able to end their trophy drought and even win the Premier league title this season. After struggling with consistency for most of the last decade, Arsenal have finally been able to put together a run of form that has seen them go top of the table just a month before Christmas. Arshavin was one of the important players of the team only a few years ago, but his poor performances led to the club allowing him leave on a free transfer to Zenit St Petersburg.
Arshavin has been trying to rediscover his form in the last few months, while he has also kept his eye on his former club. Speaking to the official website of Zenit St Petersburg, he says that Arsenal’s current position in the league table surprises him a lot. The transfer record set by Arshavin’s transfer has since been broken by the transfer of Mesut Ozil in the summer. The German international cost to the club an incredible £ 42.5 million. He has been one of their best players so far.
“I was surprised that Arsenal won so comfortably, Liverpool are in excellent form right now. But Arsenal are also playing much better than they have over the last two or three years. The signing of Ozil has brought stability to the side and, against the get the best football odds at William Hill, this season Arsenal have a chance to finish in first place,” said the Russian.
The 32-year-old has scored two goals in 15 appearances for the Russian club this season. They have been able to go top of the table after an impressive run of form.
Arshavin has said that the signing of Ozil has been much more important since it has brought stability to the club.
