Brentford manager Thomas Frank believes that Arsenal could win the Premier League title this season with the way they have started the campaign.
Brentford and Arsenal square up in the Premier League on Sunday and Frank also believes the Gunners midfielder Martin Odegaard is close to Man City’s Kevin De Bruyne’s performance levels.
Before the Queen’s death and their 3-1 defeat to Manchester United, Arsenal had recorded five wins from their opening six Premier League games.
Odegaard, meanwhile, has been in top form for the Gunners, who will be looking to get back on track in the Premier League.
“We are playing against a very good side,” Frank told reporters ahead of the game.
“When we beat them a year ago, I think they were not in the same place as they are now.
“Doing it on Sunday would be completely different because for me, now, after [Manchester] City, they are the best performing team in the league.
“That’s another level. And I thought they could win the Premier League.
‘I think they’ve been fantastic. I think the players are growing, they’ve got the right players in.
“Odegaard, the way he plays at this moment in time, De Bruyne is a decent player, but he’s not far off him in terms of performances.”
