Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp is confident his old side are well equipped to challenge for the Premier League title but fears Liverpool represent the biggest threat.

The Gunners head to Anfield on Saturday, a venue at which they have not been able to celebrate victory since 2012, top of the table following last week’s impressive win over Brighton.

Jurgen Klopp’s side, meanwhile, slipped back into second after they were held to a stalemate by Manchester United, surrendering their 100% record at home this season in the process.

Despite that setback, Bergkamp feels the Reds boast a squad capable of pushing Arsenal all the way and considers them a bigger danger than reigning champions Manchester City.

‘I think Liverpool. I’ve got a funny feeling I saw that game against United and they showed the bench and they showed the two players who were coming on and I was like ‘oh wait, they’ve got him and him and him’,’ Bergkamp told the Seaman says podcast

They were all injured and if they come back at the right time they might be the biggest contenders to win.

‘It’s about managing the team through this period and then get the advantage of it later on.’

On the progress Arsenal have made recently under Mikel Arteta, Bergkamp added: ‘I think everything is there for them to do well. They’re getting back to playing good football again, being dominant and everything.

You need a little bit of help from the other teams, that’s working out well at the moment and I learned this from the English players when I played, that once you go past this period then it all starts.

‘Then you have an eye on the trophies you’ve got the European games that get more tense.

‘You have to dig into your squad. They’re in contention now, more than that, and they might win it.’
