Arsenal news LIVE: Gunners top Premier League on Christmas as Piers Morgan encourages Cristiano Ronaldo transfer

Hello Arsenal fans

Arsenal remain top of the Premier League table heading into the 2022 World Cup break five points clear of second-placed and title rivals Manchester City.

The Gunners have amassed 12 wins from 14 league games, of which they have lost just one and will be back in action on Boxing Day against West Ham at the Emirates.

But Arsenal legend Arsene Wenger believes City will beat his former side for the Premier League title.

And this despite the loyalty of the legendary manager and the Gunners’ meteoric start to their campaign.

Wenger told beIN Sports: “Yeah personally I would put them right behind City. [Arsenal are] the second-best team to have a good chance of winning the Premier League, as Man City at some point will have a strong focus on the Champions League.

“I think [Arsenal are City’s best challengers]. And then we don’t know for Liverpool but they are already 11 points behind and 10 points behind Man City is a mountain to climb.

And SunSport columnist Piers Morgan wants Arsenal to sign Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo after his explosive interview on Piers Morgan: Uncensored.

Morgan believes Ronaldo would lead the Gunners to the top of the Premier League alongside Gabriel Jesus.

Asked on Twitter if he hoped the North Londoners would sign CR7, the journalist replied: “Yes, actually.

“He is exactly what we need. Ronaldo and Gabriel Jesus would lead us to the title.”

Finally, United have joined Arsenal in the bidding war for Shakhtar Donetsk star Mykhailo Mudryk, according to SunSport’s Daniel Cutts.

SunSport understands United have been tracking Mudryk for some time under the watch of scouts, while manager Erik ten Hag have been keen on him since becoming Ajax boss.

However, Shakhtar are reluctant to let any of their prized assets go on the cheap and would demand a substantial fee for the winger.

The Red Devils are unlikely to go for the Ukraine international in January, having invested heavily in the squad last summer.
