Waddle: A perfect Arsenal might not be enough to keep Tottenham from the title

Arsenal beat Watford 4-0 Saturday, and looked back to their best.

Former Newcastle United and Tottenham winger Chris Waddle said last week that Arsenal could win all of their remaining Premier League games, but still fall short of rivals Tottenham Hotspur and the title, the BBC report.

After a wretched run of form both in terms of results and performances, Arsenal returned to their best against Watford, blowing the visitors away 4-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

It was a classic Arsenal performance, and one that they must repeat on a weekly basis between now and the end of the season to stand any chance of toppling both Leicester City and Tottenham.

Co-commentating for BBC Radio Five Live, Waddle sees Arsenal now going on a winning run until the end of the campaign, but feels it’s already a case of too little, too late for Arsene Wenger’s men.

"Arsenal always have a blip - like the one they have had in the last couple of months - but they always finish the season well,” the former player explained.

"I can see them winning all of their remaining games but they have left themselves too much of a gap to claw back, not so much on Leicester as on Spurs (Waddle has tipped Tottenham for the title)."

Arsenal’s victory coupled with Tottenham’s draw at Liverpool means the gap between the two North London rivals has been reduced to four points, with Arsenal still having a game in hand. The Gunners still have to go to Sunderland, West Ham United and Manchester City. Tottenham still have some tricky fixtures ahead, including away games at Manchester United and Chelsea.
