Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has praised his side’s displays so far this season and has stated his belief that the Gunners are better-equipped to win the Premier League title than they have been previously.
Last year’s runners-up have started this season in superb form, standing unbeaten in 16 matches across all competitions, and sit third in the title race, just two points behind early-pacesetters Liverpool.
Tough tests await in the next month as Arsenal have to clash with Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City but Cech told the club’s official website that they can be more of a force domestically this term.
“I think the first [quality we have] is the strength in depth. When we were unlucky with long-term injuries last season, we had to use the same players in so many games and you lack energy in certain parts of the season.”
“We dropped points because we couldn’t rotate. This season we have strength in depth, you could see in the Champions League and domestic cup [games] and for the Premier League we keep using different players or can use the same players.”
“I think we are as strong as anybody else in the league. The league is very competitive but I think we are one of the teams who has all the qualities to compete for the title and we know that.”
Arsenal have won seven of their last ten matches in the Premier League and sealed their spot in the knock-out stages of the Champions League with two games to spare, which is further evidence of the Gunners’ growth this season.
Having the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil all in-form at the same time certainly helps and Arsenal will be hoping this week’s international break doesn’t affect their charge.
