Nacho Monreal reveals the reason behind Arsenal’s title challenge

Arsenal left-back Nacho Monreal has credited the lack of transfer activity as the reason behind Arsenal’s resurgent title challenge this season.

The Gunners currently sit just 2 points shy of league leaders Leicester. While they sit in 2nd, momentum is with Arsene Wenger’s men as they look to build further after a comeback win over Leicester.

Arsene Wenger has been heavily criticised by former players and managers due to lack of activity in the January transfer window.

However, despite criticism from all corners, the Frenchman heald firm with his trust in the current Arsenal squad.

Unsurprisingly, the criticism has been that the lack of signings might cost Arsenal the Premier League title yet again.

Leaping to Wenger’s defence, Monreal spoke of Arsenal’s title challenge.

He told Arsenal’s official website: “It is very important, the atmosphere in the dressing room.

“It is mandatory to have a really good relationship with your team-mates, we are like a unit. You play like a unit and you spend a lot of time with them.

“I can see now there is only one group. We are together and in every moment the atmosphere is amazing – this is very important to get trophies. If you want to win something it is necessary to have a good group.”

So as the Premier League builds towards it’s climax for the 2015/16 season, early signs show that the Gunners may just have what it takes to end their decade long Premier League title wait.
