Invincible star has no doubt: 100% Arsenal will win title!

Emirates Inside

A key member of Arsenal's unbeatable team of 2004 believes the current Gunners will edge out Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Ten years on from the greatest triumph in Arsenal's illustrious history could see the current crop of red-and-white players win a first major piece of silverware to parade around their Emirates Stadium home.

In the 2013-14 season, one year after Arsene Wenger was subject to fan and media ridicule for having the audacity, or even naivety, to suggest that his team could go the entire Premier League season without suffering a single loss, finished a campaign with 26 wins and 12 draws against zero defeats.

The Invincibles had a number of all-time Gunners greats from front to back, including: Sol Campbell, Patrick Vieira, Robert Pires, Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry.

Full back Lauren was just as monstrous on the right side of defence as, say, Vieira was in the middle of the park. The Cameroonian - who sparred and boxed in his spare time such was his love for a rugged fight - won two Premier League titles and three FA Cup medals during his six-year stay at Highbury, but believes there is something about Wenger's current selection - and that something is the confidence and belief to claim the crown.

'I think this year we’re going to win the Premier League… I’m 100 percent convinced,' said Lauren to talkSPORT. 'I’m not just saying that because they’re at the top of the league. I was saying it in September. This team is growing in confidence and belief. I think it’s between Arsenal and Manchester City.'

Arsenal are battling on three-fronts as, on top of their ambitions in the division, they have an FA Cup fifth round examination against Liverpool on Sunday at home, prior to a Champions League knockout round versus Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

'At the moment the team has to think about the FA Cup and the Champions League as well but they must focus. The season so far has been unbelievable and the team have to keep going and take it game by game. If the team start to think about Bayern we’re not going to win anything.'
