Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has advised Arsenal to put their efforts in winning the Premier League this season by going out of Europe early.
The Gunners have not won the Premier League for the past 11years and are currently bottom of their Champions League Group after losing their opening two fixtures and the next two is against German Champions Bayern Munich.
However, they have improved in the league and just yesterday defeated Manchester United 3-0 to go second on the log, two points behind Manchester City and Carragher believes that Arsene Wenger’s side could be set to win their first league title for 12 years.
“Manchester United look short in certain areas, Chelsea look well off the pace. There’s only Man City really who look like the stand out team but even they (have had bad results),” Carragher said on Sky Sports.
“Arsenal are never going to win the Champions League with this team, they always get knocked out in the quarter-finals at best, so if they go out earlier it may actually be an advantage for them. It may actually work for them.
“They will need things to go for them this season if they’re going to win the league. They’re not the best team, that’s Man City.
“[Going out] may give them a great chance this season. Next season Chelsea will be back, they’ll spend big again, United will spend big again.
“This might be a season for them [Arsenal].
“Arsenal need to win a title, that has to be their main aim.”
Club legend Thierry Henry also echoed Carragher’s view, he said: “They must win the league this season. They must win it, because of what Jamie just said.
“I don’t know if they will get a better chance. They must.”
