Former Arsenal forward, Nwankwo Kanu, has backed Arsenal to win their first Premier League title in 19 years after the Gunners passed another huge test in their title charge, defeating Manchester United 3-2 at the Emirates on Sunday.
The Gunners were held by Newcastle at the start of the month but won at Tottenham last week before avenging their only defeat of the season against United. And in beating United, Arsenal displayed the qualities of champions.
They fought back from conceding an early goal, went on to take the lead and then scored a late winner from Eddie Nketiah after the visitors had made it 2-2 midway through the second half.
Kanu, who was a member of the Arsenal side that famously went the whole season undefeated, earning the eternal nickname of ‘The Invincibles’ believes Mikel Arteta’s side has shown enough character to land the EPL title.
“Can you believe it? Well done boys. What a game! The Gunners showed great spirit and never gave up. Yes, we (Arsenal) can start dreaming of the title,” Kanu wrote on his WhatsApp status after the Gunners victory on Sunday.
The two-time African Footballer of the Year, who joined Arsenal from Inter Milan for just £4m in 1999, was popular among Arsenal fans during his five-and-a-half years at the club.
