Arsenal title tilt possible


Theo Walcott says Arsenal may be better placed for a Premier League title bid this season

In-form forward Theo Walcott thinks Arsenal have to be considered Premier League title contenders in an open year.

And Walcott thinks the gritty manner of Arsenal’s last two victories shows they have the mentality to stay in the hunt.

The Gunners needed a late goal to win at Burnley before the international break and then held on to beat Swansea 3-2 on Saturday, having been reduced to 10 men when Granit Xhaka was sent off.
