Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has declared that it is now or never for Arsenal in their Premier League title tilt.
The former England international believes the Gunners must take advantage of the turmoil currently infecting the rest of England’s top clubs.
“Arsenal, this is your time,” Shearer wrote in column for The Sun.
“There will not be a better opportunity with what is going on elsewhere — and they need to take it.
“You would have thought by this stage that it would have been a classic tussle between Mourinho, Van Gaal, Pellegrini and Wenger, yet one has gone, the long-term position of the other two is uncertain and Wenger remains the constant.
“On their day there is quite simply nobody better [than Arsenal] in the Premier League. The defence was questioned but only United have conceded less. Up front they can be an irresistible force.”
