World Cup winner and former Gunner Gilberto Silva says he thinks Arsenal can win the league this season, and he’s right behind their efforts to do so.
The Brazilian, now playing for Atlético Mineiro, told TalkSport, “I watched them against Hull and they played a really nice game and very good football.
“It’s what we expect from them and I hope this year they can win the league. I’ll be here cheering them on and supporting them from outside England.
“They have the chance this year because they are doing very well at the moment. It’s important after December and when they start January that they keep playing well, strong as they are and united as they are.
“It will be very crucial but I am very confident they can achieve it this year.”
The midfielder also said he believes Arsene Wenger will sign a new contract at the club, saying, “I expect him to stay. Everyone at Arsenal does because he knows the club more than many, many people.
“He knows exactly what he has to do for the club in general.”
