Former Manchester United striker, Robin van Persie has backed Arsenal to win the Premier League this season.
Van Persie, a former Arsenal attacker, believes the Gunners can win the title this term despite having difficult games in the past.
At the moment, Arsenal is leading in the Premier League table with eight points ahead of second position Manchester City, who have a game in hand.
“If you look at this period of time, this is where every single point really counts. They [Arsenal] have got (had) a couple of difficult games,” Van Persie told Sky Sports.
“They got the three points there, so that’s what a champion’s team is made of.”
He continued: “My personal feeling is that they will go for it – that they will win the league. It has been a while, so I am happy for them to win it.”
