Harry Redknapp comments on Arsenal’s title chances

Harry Redknapp was impressed with Arsenal’s performance against Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has told talkSPORT that Arsenal can challenge for the Premier League title this season.

Arsenal are second in the league table at the moment with 16 points from eight matches, just two points behind leaders Manchester City.

The Gunners defeated title rivals Manchester United 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium in North London on Sunday afternoon.

Former Tottenham and West Ham United boss Redknapp was watching the match, and he was impressed with the performance of Arsene Wenger’s side.

“That first 20 minutes was as good as I have seen," the former Spurs manager told talkSPORT. "It was mind-blowing. They blew Man United completely away.

“I tipped them at the start of the year (to win the title) and after two or three games I thought I must be mad! But now suddenly you look at it and think, hang on, they are right there.

“They have got a great chance this year if they can find a little bit of consistency.”

With Chelsea way back down in 16th in the Premier League table, Arsenal do indeed have a good chance of winning the championship for the first time since 2004.

However, City are favourites at the moment, and United’s chances cannot be written off either.

For the Gunners to win the league title, they need to be more consistent and also defeat teams they are expected to beat.
