Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit has ruled the Gunners out of the title race in the Premier League despite their recent run of wins.
According to him, the North Londoners lack both the squad depth and the mental strength to fight for the Premier League title race alongside early pacesetters like Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.
The 1998 World Cup winner with the French national team spoke about his former club in an interview with French outlet RMC Sport via sportwitness.
The Arsenal legend further said that the current Gunners squad lack the character needed for a title race despite their recent winning run of nine games in all competitions.
Arsenal have won ten matches on the bounce under the new dispensation of Spanish tactician Unai Emery, including seven Premier League victories, two Europa League wins and one Carabao Cup victory.
The Spaniard began his Arsenal reign with two successive league defeats against Premier League holders Manchester City and London rivals Chelsea.
Since the aforementioned defeats, the Gunners have won games against Leicester City, West Ham United, Cardiff City, Vorskla Poltava, Newcastle United, Brentford, Everton, Watford, Qarabag and Fulham.
The 3-1 victory over the Leicester City took the winning run to ten matches.
