Former Arsenal man Paul Merson has claimed that the Gunners would win the Premier League if Arsene Wenger was more like Harry Redknapp.

Arsenal sit fifth in the current table after seven games, having endured a difficult start to the campaign.

The Gunners are fighting on four fronts this season, with Arsene Wenger embarking on his first season in the Europa League in 17 years with the club.

It was expected by many that the north London side would deliver a title challenge this season, with the club not having won the Premier League since 2004.

Former Arsenal midfielder Merson claims that the club would claim the crown if Wenger “had Harry Redknapp’s tactical nous”.

“People say he’s a wheeler-dealer and it’s so disrespectful,” Merson told A League Of Their Own.

“Tactically, he’s one of the best I’ve worked with. If Arsene Wenger had Harry Redknapp’s tactical nous, Arsenal would win the league.”
