Arsene Wenger insists he’s the hungriest he’s ever been to win the Premier League with Arsenal but it’s hard to imagine that he will.

At Arsenal’s AGM meeting on Thursday, Wenger once again reiterated his desire to win the Premier League, even claiming that he’s hungrier than ever.

“I was always hungry but I’m more hungry than ever because the demands are higher and because I didn’t win the Premier League for a long time and I want to do that before you get me out of here,” Wenger said. “I have always got something to prove. If I play 4 v 4 with you now, you will see that I will try to win. We can play 1 v 1 if you want.

“There are two ways to go – you ignore your age and you live like you live for ever or you think: ‘OK.’ I am born for competition. I don’t know why and what happened to me but it is like that. No matter what I do.

“The desire to compete is my real need. It has never been financial. If it was financial, I would not be here.”

As we’re all sick to death of hearing, Arsenal haven’t won the Premier League for 13 years and, as much as I hate to admit it, I don’t see us holding it again while Wenger’s in charge.

The boss now has under two years left on his current contract after he signed an extension in May. There’s no way we’re winning the Premier League title this year and unless something massive happens over the summer, I don’t see it happening next term either.

Either Wenger’s too set in his ways, the players look as if they want to leave or the team can’t seem to gel on a consistent basis. Something always has to go wrong. And, although I appreciate everything he’s achieved so far, I don’t see that changing under the Frenchman.

At the moment, Manchester City are flying, United looking strong, and even Spurs look more solid than the Gunners.

I don’t doubt that Wenger is ‘burning’ – as the Guardian says – to win the title… but I’m not sure he can.

Even if Arsenal do manage to finish this season better than we started it, are we ever really going to catch up with Pep Guardiola’s side? Or our other rivals for that matter?

Arsenal have fallen too far behind the rest of the herd and I fear we’re going to continue to pay the price.
