Freddie Ljungberg has backed Arsenal to win the Premier League title this season and urged supporters to get behind their team.
Ljungberg was part of the famous ‘Invincibles’ side of the 2003-04 season which lifted the Premier League crown- the last time Arsene Wenger’s side triumphed in England’s top flight.
Wenger’s men currently lie in fourth place with ten points from their opening five games this season, five off leaders Manchester City who have made a 100 per cent start to the campaign.
Former midfielder Ljungberg is hoping his old side can stop the run of 12 years without a Premier League trophy, but stated Wenger’s side will need the support from the stands.
“This year hopefully we can win it,” Ljungberg told Sky Sports. “I think everyone needs to give their support and get behind it.
“I think that is what we need to aim for [winning the PL title], no question about it that’s me for a fan from second I would love us to win the Premier League.”

The attacking midfielder made 317 appearances for the north London club scoring 71 goals and providing 27 assists.
Ljungberg won two Premier League titles during his nine-year stay at Highbury, as the former Sweden international now coaches the under-16 side.
Arsenal finished runners-up to surprise winners Leicester City last season, but finished ten points off the Foxes.
Wenger spent over £90 million on transfers during the recently concluded summer window, with £35 million purchases of Granit Xhaka and Shkodran Mustafi being two of his big transfers.
