Jermaine Jenas backs Arsenal for the Premier League title

The former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder really believes in Arsenal.

Arsenal put in yet another solid performance in the Premier League yesterday. They picked up a confident 3-0 win at the Liberty Stadium to down Swansea City. Goals from Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny and Joel Campbell did the trick for The Gunners who are flying high in the Premier League.

Whisper it if you dare, but once again Arsenal are being talked of as potential Premier League champions.

One man who thinks so is a surprising source.

Jermaine Jenas played for local rivals Tottenham Hotspur for eight years. The seemingly retired midfielder and former England international has turned his hand to punditry recently and talking on last night's (31/10/2015) Match Of The Day on BBC One he made this bold prediction about his former rivals:

"I personally think they are going to win the league. I am going to get all kinds of abuse for it as soon as I come off the show. I personally do think they are going to win the league this season.

"I just think they are showing more positive signs than they did last year."

Arsenal fans will of course not be getting carried away.

The Gunners have been in these positions before but have gone on to bottle it later on in the season and at the moment, that is probably still the likely outcome.

But Jenas may very well be proven correct if Arsenal can keep up their current league form.
