Nasri thinks it could be Arsenal’s season to win Premier League
Samir Nasri believes that now Arsenal have restored their reputation with back-to-back away wins, it could be their turn to win the Premier League title again.
Arsenal have not landed the Premier League title since 2005, but there is every reason to expect that their current young crop of stars now has the experience to step up and seriously challenge Chelsea and Manchester United for honours.
And with both failing to win their latest games, Arsenal moved into second in the standings and are just two points behind Chelsea.
Arsene Wenger’s team are currently 7/2 to win the Premier League this season and Nasri feels that this could be there year for the first time in six seasons.
He said: “Is it our title year? It is definitely a case of being optimistic for the future and, maybe, it could be our turn.
“We are in a good position, just behind Chelsea, which is quite exciting for us and the league as a whole.”
Nasri has been one of Arsenal’s most influential players as Wenger has had to consistently juggle his pack because of a vast array of injuries.
The Frenchman has featured as both a central midfield creator and as a winger in a three-pronged attack this season, but is likely to remain wide in their next game against bitter rivals Spurs as Cesc Fabregas is expected to be fit enough to start.
Nasri has already upset Spurs this season as he converted two extra-time penalties as Arsenal beat their fellow north Londoners away in the third round of the Carling Cup.
Arsenal’s betting odds are 4/6 to beat Tottenham again, although Harry Redknapp is certain to put out a stronger team than was the case in the Carling Cup defeat.
Chelsea remain the 8/11 favourites to win the Premier League, with Manchester United 3/1. See the whole Premier League winners betting odds market.
