Claude Puel Believes It Is To Early To Predict Arsenal’s Title Contention

Leicester City manager Claude Puel feels it is too early to deliver a verdict on Arsenal’s title contention.

Leicester are scheduled to visit Emirates on Monday in a bid to halt Arsenal’s winning juggernaut. The Gunners are currently on a nine match winning run including a six game winning streak in the Premier League.

Unai Emery hasn’t had a good start to his Arsenal reign as he had to digest two back to back defeats at the hands of Manchester City and Chelsea. But since then the North London giants have picked up the pace and a favourable result in the next match would help them in sneaking into the top four.

Puel said, “We will see. He started with some difficulties and lost (the) first two games but after they have worked and played well to win games in the cup, Europa League and Premier League.

“They have nine wins at this moment which is incredible. They are confident in their play. They are more direct and clinical at the moment, with a clinical player like (Alexandre) Lacazette for example.

“They can have good confidence for the future, but for the title I don’t know. It is just the beginning of the season and the Premier League has a lot of possibilities.

“He can make a fantastic job. It is not easy to take the team after Arsene Wenger. We know how this manager can give for this club.

“Starting this season with a new manager and perhaps a lot of pressure, their beginning of the season has been fantastic and I have a lot of respect for this manager and the quality of his work.

“Perhaps Arsene wanted a little more possession in his game and perhaps it is more direct with Emery. Two different but good philosophies and styles of game.”
