New Arsenal Signing Matteo Guendouzi Reckons They Can Win The League
Arsenal new boy Matteo Guendouzi believes Arsenal has what it takes to win the Premier League.
The 19-year old, who joined from Ligue 2 side Lorient, had a very tough introduction to English football - making his debut in a 2-0 defeat to champions Manchester City and being culpable for the opening goal.
But the young central midfielder is clearly full of optimism and insists they can do the unthinkable in Unai Emery's first season at the helm - despite not winning it since the memorable Invincibles season under Arsene Wenger.
"Yes, I believe we can win it this season because of the players and staff we have," he is quoted as saying by Metro.
"We truly believe and will do everything we can to win as many games as we can and to have a fantastic season. I truly believe we can do it.
"Man City are a top team but there are a lot of top teams in this division because the Premier League is the best league in Europe.

"There are plenty of others but we can be very positive and achieve good things this season. We can win titles because of the environment we have here and the quality of the players at our disposal."
Guendouzi moved to the Emirates for a fee of £7 million and is rivalling fellow new signing Lucas Torreira, Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka for the midfield spots.
He says he had plenty of offers from leading European teams but Arsenal were always going to the Frenchman's first choice.
"It's true there were a lot of clubs interested in me - I had talks with some of the biggest clubs in Europe but as soon as I heard from Arsenal, the decision was very simple and I'm very happy to be here.
"It's the club of my heart. There have been a lot of French players here and Thierry Henry is a symbol in France after his long career here. I used to watch Arsenal games with my father and it has a special place in my heart."
