Jack Wilshere has explained to Arsenal’s official website how they can be Premier League champions this season.

Last season was regarded as something of a disappointing one for the Gunners last season despite them finishing second in the table.

The disappointment stemmed from the manner in which they fell away in the second half of the campaign after leading the table heading into 2016.

What ultimately cost them was their form against the sides in the bottom half of the table, with draws against the likes of Crystal Palace and Sunderland costing them.

And Wilshere says they must be more focused in those games to ensure they are champions this season.

“There are a few things that we have to work on,” he told the club’s official website.

“The biggest thing for me, is if you look back at the game last season we dropped points in, they were probably games we were expected to win. This season we can’t let that happen and if we don’t we can be champions.”

It remains to be seen if Arsenal are even in the title race this season, with many predicting that won’t be the case at this stage.

While their rivals have all spent big to ensure a title challenge, the Gunners have only secured Granit Xhaka in a big money move.

That has led to fears they will be left behind, and perhaps they would be wiser to focus on ensuring they can make it into the top four than suggesting how to win the title.
