Tottenham legend Gary Lineker hopes Arsene Wenger's Arsenal wins the Premiership this season.

In his column for the Mail on Sunday, Lineker wrote: "Arsene Wenger remains living proof that old-fashioned principles like developing young players and working on the training ground still have a place in the modern game.

"Which is why, even as a former Tottenham player, I am joining every football lover and neutral in the country and willing Arsenal to become the Premier League champions this year.

"Football is always better for having a little romance in it.

"So while you can admire Chelsea's strength and pragmatism, or Manchester United's know-how and experience, it is Arsenal capturing the imagination this season.

"There are two good reasons to want Arsenal to win a trophy, preferably the title.

"First, they play football the way it should be played, with technique, passing, movement and exciting, attacking flair; our Barcelona, if you like.

"The second reason is the financial one; that Wenger can bury the myth that the only way to be champions is to have the biggest wallet."
