Former Manchester United and England midfielder Owen Hargreaves has stated that Arsenal can win the Premier League title if their new players adapt quickly to the pace of the Premier League.
He said that the team already had a good squad last season and that they only needed a few players added in order to turn into genuine title contenders. Speaking before the start of the season, Owen Hargreaves said that Arsene Wenger needed to add three players to the side, and the club would turn into title contenders.
Arsenal managed to sign two players before the end of the transfer window, and Owen Hargreaves believes that these players should definitely improve the team. Mustafi is a German international that will add more quality at the back while Perez will definitely help boost their attacking options up front.
However, Owen Hargreaves believes that it will all depend on how quick they can adapt to the pace of the Premier League. He said that the new players seem a bit lost in their first game and that it is normal that they will need time to adapt to their new surroundings. It is important that they adapt quickly if the team wants to challenge for the Premier League title.
Owen Hargreaves believe that the Premier League will be highly competitive this season with all the big teams investing massively on new players and that all the big sides should be prepared to lose games. He believes that Arsenal has a good chance to win the title as they already have some good players since last season and that the addition of some new players should definitely improve the team.
He said that his former club Manchester United also has a good chance to win the title especially with a manager such as Jose Mourinho.
