Former Chelsea forward and 2014 World Cup winner Andre Schurrle says
Arsenal won’t be title challengers this
The Wolfsburg attacker is aware his former Stamford Bridge team-mate Petr Cech signed for the Gunners in a reported £11m deal this summer but Schurrle is still not convinced Arsenal can end their 11-year league title drought this term.
Schurrle has however tipped his former side Chelsea to retain the league and says Arsenal stand no chance of challenging the Blues.
“For sure it is a great transfer for Arsenal,” Schurrle said on Cech’s transfer to the Emirates Stadium.
“Petr Cech is a great professional and person so he will help them a lot this season.
“I think the league will be the same because they are champions now and know how to win and the whole team stayed, so they will be very good.
“I think they are favourites for the title.”
