England man doesn’t believe Gunners can go the distance.
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has cast his doubts over whether Arsenal will be able to sustain their title challenge over the course of the season, talkSPORT reports.
Following their opening day defeat to Aston Villa, the Gunners have gone undefeated in the Premier League and currently sit atop the table setting the early pace.
Their recent good run of form has prompted critics to rethink their stance on Arsene Wenger’s influence and the side’s strengths. However, Rooney has remained unconvinced by their early dominance and has already began the mind games ahead of Sunday’s clash between the two.
“We’ll have to wait and see where Arsenal are in March,” he said.
“We’ve seen before that they’ve been in the top two until February or March and then faded away.
“They are doing brilliantly at the minute, so it’s down to them to try and stay there and us to catch them.
“We’re obviously capable of beating Arsenal. We’ve done it many times in the past.
“They’re on a good run of form at the moment and they’re top of the league, so we know it’s going to be a difficult game.
“But we have to go into it with confidence and a belief this is when we can edge closer to them and bring us back into the mix of being at the top of the league.”
