Too soon for title talk, insists Arsenal’s Podolski

Lukas Podolski believes there are five or six teams capable of winning the Premier League, of which Arsenal are one, but wants to delay any talk of the Gunners winning the title until later in the season, according to Sky Sports.

Arsenal are have not lost so far this season, taking nine points from a possible 15, including a battling draw against champions Manchester City in their last league fixture. Joleon Lescott put Roberto Mancini’s side in front with only the second goal conceded by Arsenal this season, but Laurent Koscielny levelled late in the match to preserve Arsenal’s unbeaten start.

Podolski welcomed Arsenal’s strong early form - of which he has played a key role with two goals since his summer move from FC Koln - but was keen to stress it is too early to say if his new side can finish top of the table.

He said: “You have five, six teams to fight for the championship. We are one of the teams and the start was very good for us. We have nine points but it's too early to speak about the championship. We must wait to play 20 matches then we must see how it is and I ask whether we fight or we don't fight for the championship.
