Gary Lineker reacts on Twitter to Arsenal draw, BBC pundit remains positive

Arsene Wenger

Arsenal played out a 3-3 draw with West Ham United in the Premier League on Saturday.

Former Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Arsenal’s failure to win against West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.

Arsenal played out a 3-3 draw with West Ham at the Boleyn Ground in the London derby.

The result means that the Gunners remain third in the Premier League table with 59 points from 32 matches.

Arsene Wenger’s side are currently three points behind second-placed and North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and 10 behind leaders Leicester City.

With both Tottenham and Leicester to play on Sunday, the gap between Arsenal and the top two is likely to increase, although the Gunners will then have a game in hand.

Lineker has suggested on Twitter that Arsenal’s failure to win against West Ham means that they are out of the Premier League title race.

Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks, though, believes that the Gunners should not be written off just yet, stating on BBC Final Score (14:48) on Saturday afternoon: “This has been a bonkers season, there will still be twists and turns. Let’s not dispose of Arsene Wenger just yet. Let’s see what Leicester and Spurs do.”

Leicester will take on Sunderland away from home at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, while Tottenham will host Manchester United at White Hart Lane.
