Former Arsenal stars Freddie Ljungberg and Robert Pires have backed the current crop of players at the club to win the league this season but the latter has concerns.
Speaking to ESPN FC, the pair remain optimistic that the squad has shown signs of being capable of playing at a high enough level to continue to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United.
Ljungberg believes that the play of Theo Walcott in particular has been a crucial part of their success, with the England international deployed as the lone striker at times and has used his energy and pace to great effect both defensively and offensively.
Pires shared his former teammate’s assessment and believes that the Gunners have a great chance of ending their wait for another Premier League title, but he is worried about the number of injuries that Wenger is currently having to deal with.
Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck have all been sidelined, while the likes of Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker have struggled with various ailments over the last few months.
Although Arsenal have been able to maintain their momentum and continue to sit joint top of the standings along with City after collecting 26 points from 12 games so far this season despite their injury woes, it remains to be seen whether or not they feel the impact of those absences in the second half of the season.
Wenger takes his side to the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon to face West Bromwich Albion, before their focus switches back to the Champions League when they host Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday night.
However, their fate in Europe is out of their hands as they trail both Bayern Munich and Olympiakos by six points with two games remaining in the group stage.
