Merson’s comments come in the wake of a near-miss by Mikel Arteta’s squad last season, during which they led the league table for an impressive 240 days.

Despite their initial dominance, a combination of injuries and a dip in form ultimately allowed Manchester City to surge ahead, ultimately securing a historic treble.

He told Sky Sports: “It’s alright having a good young team, who are continually impressing, but you’ve got to win something. Unless they do, this team won’t be remembered. No one talks about teams that don’t win leagues. It’s harsh, but that’s the reality.

“I do feel sorry for the Gunners because they are having to contend with the juggernaut that is Man City.”
