Ian Wright: Arsenal can win EPL if Partey, others stay fit
Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, believes the club’s chances of winning this season’s English Premier League would depend on the fitness of Thomas Partey and two other key players.
According to him, the Ghana midfielder together with Odegaard and Bukayo Saka have been the engine of the team and if they can avoid injuries then the Gunners have a brighter chance of being crowned champions.
“But when you look at the team this season, Saka's done it, Partey's done it, Odegaard has done it.
“Those are the ones, if Partey, Odegaard and Saka stay fit – which is going to be very tough – then I think Arsenal have got a very good chance of winning the league”, the Arsenal legend stated.
Mikel Arteta’s side currently sits on top of the EPL table with 44 points with the Ghana deputy captain playing a crucial role in the team’s success this season.
But Wright believes injury to these key players is inevitable but if they are able to stay clear of injuries then they could help the club claim their first title since 2003/04 season when they last won it.
