Arsenal is the ‘team to watch’ this season, according to former Premier League defender Jamie Carragher.

The Gunners are unbeaten in four Premier League games under Mikel Arteta, having been bottom of the table in September.

Arsenal, according to Liverpool icon Carragher, will pose the greatest threat to the teams currently in the top four.

After conceding nine goals in their first three Premier League games, Arteta’s squad has kept four clean sheets in their previous five games in all competitions.

Despite the fantastic form, Carragher, 43, believes the top four will be Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United at the end of the season.

“We can already see which are the top four strongest Premier League teams,” Carragher wrote for the Telegraph.

However, he went on to say: “Arsenal is a squad I believe is worth keeping an eye on as the season progresses.

“The lack of European football can be a huge assistance for Mikel Arteta as he spends more time with his players on the training field if they can get consistency into their young side.
