Fabregas speaks out on Arsenal’s title hopes

The Barcelona midfielder has admitted that he watches every Gunners game, and is hoping that Arsene Wenger’s men can win the league this year.

Cesc Fabregas left Arsenal after eight years with an FA Cup winners medal, but has admitted in the past that he regretted not having won the Premier League title.

The Gunners are top of the table currently and have as good a chance to become English champions this year as at any point in the recent memory.

Fabregas has spoken out about the Emirates Stadium outfit’s chances of winning the league, and has revealed that he keeps a close eye on his former club.

“I watch every game of Arsenal’s,” he told The Daily Mail.

“I am very happy how they are playing, they have a strong squad, they are top of the league.

“I cannot wait to see if they can lift the trophy finally. It would be amazing, they need to be very consistent between now and the end of the season.”

The next month of football will play a significant role in Arsenal’s title chances, with a trip to take on Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday next up for Arsene Wenger’s men.

This will be followed by a clash against Manchester United in north London, another match-up with the Anfield outfit in the FA Cup and mouth-watering clashes with Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
