Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri believes Arsenal are ready to win the Premier League title again.
The Italian admitted his surprise that Arsene Wenger has been unable to claim a title since his last success with the Invincibles of 2004.
However, after seeing his side demolished by the Gunners at the weekend, he believes they are ready for a serious title push this campaign.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “When I was at Chelsea, they were the Invincibles. That was an unbelievable achievement, so it is surprising they have not won the league since.
“In my time at Chelsea I only managed to beat them once in 14 attempts. It is a bad record, but every match was a good game, always very open.
“I don’t know why Arsenal have had to wait so long, because Arsene Wenger is a good manager and he brings in good players, but maybe it is not so easy to replace players such as Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Fredrik Ljungberg and all the defenders.”
