Lawro wrote in the Mirror: "On October 20, I said that Iâ€™d wait until today to decide whether Arsenal are genuine contenders.
"So while they may have lost at Manchester United on Sunday, Iâ€™m convinced the Gunnersâ€™ title challenge is very much here to stay - theyâ€™ve got too much quality, so much individual brilliance.
"Yes, they will be disappointed not to have extended their Premier League advantage over United to 11 points.
"They looked leggy, they looked as though theyâ€™d run out of ideas a bit - a surprise when you consider they have the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla.
"When those players are fit, I think they will have attacking options that are a match for any club in the Premier League."
