He said: "I have this feeling Arsenal will win the Premier League. They are playing well against the big four and I do think they play the most attractive football, though Manchester United have also played some good stuff.
"So far, Arsenal have lost only one game and, if they remain unbeaten from now on, it would be very unusual not to win the title.
"Obviously, I love Arsenal. But that's not the reason why I think they will win the title. I just feel they have the quality.
"I still follow their results, every game. Last Saturday, every five minutes against Middlesbrough, I was texting somebody to find out what was happening.
"I watch them every game possible and I wish them good luck. I still have something in my heart for Arsenal. I speak to Ade, William Gallas, Gael Clichy and Cesc. I have also spoken to Gilberto a couple of times.
"They have been doing brilliantly against the big teams, so, maybe, it is a good time to play Chelsea.
"Playing Chelsea was always special for me. No disrespect to any other team but when you play Chelsea, Liverpool or Manchester United and you are in the final 10 minutes, you somehow find extra power.
"At this stage of the season, I actually think it is better to play the bigger teams.
"It is a big month for Arsenal but I think that they can do it."
