Gary Lineker Hangs His Hat on Arsenal to Win the Premier League

Gary Lineker has taken the bold move of tipping Arsenal to win the English Premier League after their 3-0 victory over Swansea today.

The Match of the Day and BT Sport pundit hung his hat on the Gunners following the impressive away win.

Arsene Wenger’s men kept pace with Manchester City at the top of the English Premier League by grabbing three points at the Liberty Stadium.

They’re now on 25 points alongside City, three points above Leicester on third and four above Manchester United in fourth.

Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny and Joel Campbell did the business in Wales, capping off a fantastic away performance.

And Lineker was obviously impressed – taking to Twitter to pledge his allegiance to Arsenal as champions:

Arsenal have lost just twice in their 11 opening league games of the season and the last of those came to Chelsea in the middle of September – five matches ago.

They’re now in confident mood going into the midweek Champions League clash with Bayern Munich before facing Tottenham in the North London derby next weekend.
