Lord Sugar wants Arsenal title victory

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger

The 69-year-old put his Tottenham allegiances to one side and backed Arsenal.

Lord Sugar has said on Twitter that he would love to see Arsene Wenger deliver the Premier League title for Arsenal this season.

The Gunners are second in the table, three points behind Chelsea after coming from behind to beat Stoke City 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium at the weekend.

They also have a seven-point cushion in the top four, with Tottenham back in fifth.

Wenger celebrated 20 years as Arsenal manager back in October but the last 12 of those have been rather frustrating, with the North Londoners failing to win another title since their Invincible season back in 2004.

And former Spurs chairman Sugar has claimed that he would love to see the veteran Frenchman end that hoodoo this season.

It certainly seems as if Arsenal have a good shot at winning the title but, at the same time, they are infamous for falling away around the February and March period so fans would not be hugely surprised to see history repeat itself this time around.

This might also be Wenger's final season in charge of Arsenal and it would be nice to see him bookend his lengthy career in North London with the Premier League title.
