Former Premier League striker Chris Sutton has commented on Arsenal's recent games, questioning the mentality of Mikel Arteta's side. The Londoners have recorded two draws in the last matches in the Premier League, results that have left many fans of the club disappointed, this and because of the way the matches were played.
Arsenal were unable to maintain their double lead against Liverpool and West Ham, eventually taking 1 point from each challenge. Sutton has commented on the game of the "gunners", and their chances of being declared champions in the Premier League:
"The question Arsenal fans have today is, is this the day the title dream ended? When Arsenal can't hold on to a double advantage in the last two games, it calls into question whether the team has the mental fortitude to go all the way and win the title."
The Londoners lead the Premier League standings, four points clear of second-placed Manchester City, but Pep Guardiola's side have a game in hand. Meanwhile, former England defender Matt Upson still believes Arsenal can pull it off and be crowned champions. Upson said:
"Now, what they (Arsenal) have to do is not let the doubts demotivate them. The job of Arteta and his staff is not to let the players feel bad or think negatively about themselves... They are still in a pretty good position, they have to keep the same mentality, they have to keep believing, this it's Arsenal's job at the moment and they have to keep moving forward."
