Carragher names two players that have transformed Arsenal into title contenders
Jamie Carragher, a former defender for Liverpool, has singled out Gabriel Jesus and William Saliba for helping Arsenal become a team that is "a lot closer" than "people give them credit for" to winning the Premier League.
After winning six of their first seven games, the Gunners are in first place in the standings.
The team of Mikel Arteta is one point in front of both Tottenham and Manchester City, the reigning champions.
Jesus moved to the United States this summer from Mexico City, where he previously lived.
Saliba has performed equally well, aiding the Gunners in keeping three clean sheets in the Premier League.
“If you actually watched Arsenal this season, you’d never seen them before." "I mean, they do look like they could be title contenders,” Carragher told talkSPORT.
“I’ve always been a huge fan of Mikel Arteta. [I] really like how brave he’s been—certainly last season—in blooding all these young players.
“Now, they’re 12 months older, but [with] the signing of Jesus and Saliba coming in at the back, [it] almost feels like it’s completely changed the whole aspect of Arsenal right now." I think they could be a lot closer [to winning the league] than, you know, people give them credit for. "
