Emirates Inside

The Brazilian has told the Arsenal players what they should do as they bid to win the title.

Former Brazilian midfielder Gilberto Silva knows all about winning the Premier League, and one of the members of Arsenal’s Invincibles has been talking to the club’s official website as the current crop of Gunners stars seek to reclaim the title after far too long.

Arsenal are currently second in the league, just two points behind surprise leaders Leicester City with 15 matches played, and manager Arsene Wenger will know everything can change over the busy festive period.

Speaking to, Gilberto said, “It’s important for everyone to be focused on what they have to do, to keep doing their job at the highest level they can.

“The confidence is high but you must be careful and not let it go over the limit of what is necessary.”

Arsenal’s squad will know they have a great chance of winning the league this season, such is the tightness of the current title race with any one of the top five arguably in with a chance of ultimately winning the prize.

So those same players would be wise to heed Gilberto’s advice, because despite their current injury crisis Arsenal have the players to carve out success in the months and years ahead.
