“It’s quite interesting because I did some TV with Michael Owen and he said over the past eight years where they are now is their average,” said the former Arsenal defender.
“They need to step it up because if Chelsea or Manchester City were moving and grooving Arsenal would still be in the same position.
"They need to go beyond their average to make the difference and either be more special or buy a couple of special players.”
Arsenal started the season as one of the top favourites to win the Premier League title, but there is a chance that they will once again fail to do so.
The North London outfit tend to start brilliantly, but they fade away in the final months of the campaign.
There is a chance that it could happen this term, and that is going to be hugely frustrating for the Arsenal fans.
Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United have spent quite a lot of money over the years in an effort win the Premier League title.
The Gunners have also spent, but not as much as their main rivals, which is why the squad that manager Arsene Wenger has at his disposal is not as good as it should be.
Perhaps that will all change in the summer…
