"I think..." - Son of Arsenal legend Bergkamp makes bold Premier League title prediction

Bromley midfielder Mitchel Bergkamp, son of Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp reckons the Gunners are going to win the Premier League title.

Mikel Arteta has guided Arsenal to first place in the table, as his young team aim to lift the trophy for the first time since Dennis Bergkamp in 2004.

The north London side snatched victory at the jaws of defeat against Bournemouth, coming away 3-2 winners courtesy of Reiss Nelson's last-gasp winner.

The win restored their five-point cushion over title rivals Manchester City, with seventh-placed Fulham up next on Sunday.



Bergkamp backs Arsenal to win the league

Mitchel Bergkamp has now revealed he favours Arsenal to lift the trophy.

The 24-year-old told Football Daily: "Yeah, I'd give them [Arsenal] the benefit of the doubt. I think they're going to do it."


Arsenal didn't have the smoothest of rides during the first leg of their Europa League tie against Sporting Lisbon on Thursday.

The Gunners found themselves 2-0 down upon the hour mark, and required a stroke of luck to get themselves level.

Granit Xhaka's scooped cross was intercepted by Hidemasa Morita, who could only watch as it bobbled into his own net.

The contest is balanced on a knife edge heading into the second leg at the Emirates.


Jesus 'close' to return

But in a major boost for supporters, star summer signing Gabriel Jesus is close to a return to the field. The Brazilian has resumed first-team training at London Colney after several months out with a knee injury.

Speaking earlier this month, Arteta insisted he wouldn't rush Jesus back but revealed the 25-year-old was "in a good place".

"He's not far now," said Arteta. "I don't want to give a timeline but certain things are with the team and certain things are outside the team.


"He's not very close but he's not far at all. He's feeling better every day and the doctors are confident with the way the injury is evolving. We are in a good place with him, I think."
