In the view of Glen Johnson, Arsenal still need to continue to upgrade the squad if they want to squeeze into the top positions in the Premier League. Talking to Ladbrokes, the former Liverpool player shared:

“The team that Arteta has at the moment is not good enough to compete for titles – yes, but they are doing well at the moment. Once you’re in the Top 4 and you’re in the Champions League, you can. think about the next step.”

 Arteta needs more shopping.

“And if they want to close that gap with the Top 2 or the Top 3, they still need to improve the roster and bring in more rookies.

“They definitely need a new striker in the upcoming transfer window, then a couple of midfielders and centre-backs.”

“Listen, they’ve got some good players, but they’re not strong enough to compete with the best teams in the league consistently.”

“Right now, you have to say this is a risky game for Liverpool. If it had been a few months ago you would have considered it an easy win – but now, I don’t think so.”

“Arsenal have found a certain form, they are playing really well and are winning the games. Right now, they are reaping good results, quietly moving to fourth place and I think It’s going to be a really tough game for Liverpool.”
