Arsenal’s biggest ‘problem’ could end up being winning the title, says Tony Cascarino
rsenal could have the depth of their squad to thank should they go all the way and win the Premier League title.
According to Tony Cascarino, who believes the Gunners have solved what was originally described as the main reason why their attempt to end a two-decade long wait for the crown would ultimately fail.
Sunday’s win over Fulham was thanks to the creativity of Leandro Trossard as the January signing was involved in all three goals and caught the eye of former Chelsea and Ireland star Cascarino.
The Belgian’s fine form since signing to replace Arsenal’s first choice in the top three follows pivotal moments from the likes of Reiss Nelson in the club’s continued title bid.
“When Arsenal started their attack at the top of the table, one of the problems that people said was holding them back was that they didn’t have a strong squad,” he wrote in The Times.
“They had a good starting XI, but the squad wasn’t close enough to contest a title challenge.
“But that’s just another example of that [Mikel] Arteta’s arsenal is proving people wrong. Leandro Trossard’s signing was brilliant.
“Not only does he provide cover for a number of positions, but he also gives Arsenal another opportunity to play with that fluid front line alongside Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli – they grew together quickly.
“Add to that the signing of Jorginho and the influence of Reiss Nelson, who scored that late winner against Bournemouth. Rather than cost them the title, squad depth could help Arsenal win it.”
