The Gunners have found a brilliant start to the new season after two busy transfer windows.

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes the Gunners have enough squad depth to push for the Premier League title.

Having added five new players to their ranks, Mikel Arteta’s side have found a solid start to the new campaign.

The Gunners sit at the top of the Premier League table after the opening six matchdays. 

Wenger believes there are no ‘dominant sides’ in the English top flight this season. However, he considers his former side among the main favourites to win the domestic title.

“I would say they are moving in the right direction. I honestly think there is no weak position in the team…they are young, promising players and they have bought well this year,” Wenger said.

“There is no completely dominating team this season and Arsenal has a chance with the potential that is there.

“We used to be in the top four and why not again? You cannot even rule out the fact that they can fight for the title and hopefully they can do it.”

Arsenal started the season with five consecutive wins before losing to Manchester United last week.

The Gunners will return to action when they meet Brentford on Sunday.
