Former Chelsea star Didier Drogba, who scored 164 goals in 282 appearances during his two spells at Chelsea has backed Arsenal to end their 10-year wait for English Premier League title.
Arsenal last won the EPL title during the 2003/2004 when they were crowned the champs in a style. The Gunners won the title with an unbeaten run, something that no other EPL side has achieved since then.
The EPL 2003/2004 champs are currently ranked at number four with 26 points, two shy-off league leaders Leicester City after suffering a defeat in the hands of West Bromwich.
Speaking about the chances of the Gunners lifting the title after 13 league matches, Drogba said that Manchester City will be the team to beat but Arsene Wenger’s side can give them a run for their glory, Drogba told Sky Sports News HQ.
The Ex Chelsea star also said that his former club can still build on their last win against Norwich City to finish among the top four teams. The Blues are placed 15.
Wenger’s side will travel to face Norwich City on Sunday, November 29 and the Stamford Bridge based side weekend’s fixture against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.
In the Champions League, Chelsea will need to secure a point against Porto when the two sides clash in the final match. Their win against Maccabi on Tuesday was a major step towards knock-out stages.
If Porto and Chelsea draw then Dynamo Kiev win their last group fixture, then the three teams will square-out in the mini league pitting the three teams.
On the other hand, Arsenal will meet the Greek based side in the last cracker fixture that a draw will see Olympiakos get their ticket to the last 16, while the Gunners must beat their opponents by more than a two goal margin to seal the 3-2 defeat at the Emirates in September.
