According to former Arsenal defender William Gallas, the World Cup in Qatar will help Arsenal win the Premier League title in 2022–23.
With the season now on hold for the World Cup, the Gunners are in first place on the table after winning 12 of their previous 14 games and are five points ahead of Manchester City.
On Boxing Day, Arsenal and West Ham will play at the Emirates in the Premier League.
After a flurry of summer additions, Mikel Arteta’s team appears to be a different animal this season after missing out on Champions League qualification the previous campaign. Tottenham, a rival from north London, took the fourth position as a result of a late collapse.
They still have a tough road ahead of them if they want to defeat Pep Guardiola’s champions, who have won four of the previous five Premier League titles.
In January, Arsenal will play third- and fourth-placed Tottenham, but Gallas believes his former team will return from the World Cup even stronger.
Gallas, who made 142 appearances for the Gunners, told Genting Casino that the World Cup can aid Arsenal in winning the championship.
If you compare Arsenal and Manchester City, Arsenal has ten players who are traveling to the World Cup, and of those ten players, maybe four of them will start for their national teams.
Nine or ten of the sixteen Manchester City players who are traveling will start every match for their country, making up nearly the entire first team.
Arsenal, in my opinion, has a better chance of winning the Premier League than any other team because no one can predict how the players will feel following the World Cup.
They will depart for the scorching heat of Qatar and return to the bitter cold of England.
In all seriousness, they won’t have much time to recharge their batteries and will have a hard time adjusting.
