Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta highly praised his opponent, Chelsea FC.
The Gunners boss under fire said the opposing team in the long-awaited London derby currently has the strongest side in the entire Premier League.
The Blues won the summer transfer window, hands down, and all the high-priced talent they added to a team that finished in the top four last season has many expecting the west London club to be a title contender in 20/21.
Chelsea is currently fifth in the table, but is only six points behind league leaders Liverpool. However, they are 11 points ahead of Arsenal, which is well below 15th place. Arsenal have had their worst start since 1974, but for now Arteta still has the backing of their bosses.
“Obviously Chelsea always have a great squad of great players. The team we faced a few months ago was one of the best, ”said Arteta.
“Right now, you’re probably talking about the strongest team in the Premier League.”
