Arsenal the best attacking side in the Premier League says, Alex Neil

Arsenal Celebrate

The likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have been in fine form for Arsene Wenger's side this season.

Norwich City boss Alex Neil has told Sky Sports that Arsenal are the best attacking side in the Premier League.

The Gunners travel to Carrow Road on Sunday looking to bounce back from the disappointing loss to West Bromwich Albion last weekend.

They have been an impressive attacking unit so far, with the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez catching the eye.

Their away form has been a particular highlight, with them scoring 15 goals on the road so far, the joint-highest return in the league.

And the Canaries boss says they are the most difficult team to contain in the division.

"Arsenal will want to put points on the board. They have had a good season and are the hardest attacking team to stop,” he told Sky Sports.

“But even when so-called bigger teams come to our place, they have been happy to sit behind the ball, soak up pressure and hit you on the counter attack and that sort of surprised me.”

“That is something new for us, coming up against sort of the bigger teams, with them being happy to surrender the ball and it's how you make best use of that."

Given how dangerous they have looked going forward this season, it’s fair to say Arsenal are up there with the best in the league.

With the likes of Ozil and Sanchez in the side that is not a surprise, while strikers Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud have also stepped up and impressed at times this season.

Despite that strength going forward, they do, however, still lack a truly world class centre forward that could complete the side.

If they were able to secure such a player, there is no denying they would have one of the best, if not the best attacking options in the Premier League.
