Former England manager Stuart Pearce believes that Arsenal can’t be considered as a major contender in the race for the Premier League title despite their recent winning sequence of ten games.
The Gunners have now won their last ten matches in all competitions following the 3-1 comeback win over Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery and his players have also won their last seven Premier League games.
Stuart Pearce spoke about Arsenal and the Premier League title challenge while he was talking on English outlet talksport via the Daily Express.
The former Manchester City boss further revealed that the North Londoners need to produce eye-catching performances against their other top-six rivals for them to be considered as a major title challenger.
Arsenal didn’t navigate the aforementioned Premier League clash with Leicester City on their own terms after they trailed to a 31st-minute own goal scored by Spanish right-back Hector Bellerin.
Arsenal defender Bellerin was also involved in the second goal of the game after his cross was turned in by captain Mesut Ozil for the Gunners equaliser on 45 minutes.
Bellerin also provided the assist for the second Arsenal goal scored by substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 63rd minute before the Gabonese international added his brace three minutes later to secure a 3-1 victory for the hosts.
