Robbie Savage’s brutal response to Arsenal fan’s Premier League title claim

Robbie Savage has a brutal reaction when an Arsenal fan claimed his side could win the Premier League on 606.

The Gunners salvaged a 2-2 draw against north London rivals Tottenham.

After a strong start to the Premier League campaign, they are now fifth in the table.

It has led some pundits, including Match of the Day’s Alan Shearer , to slash the club’s chance of a top-four finish.

But footage has emerged from BBC Radio 5 Live’s fan talk show, presented by Savage, of one supporter making a big claim for the campaign.

The fan – identified as Tom – says: “I reckon we’ll win the league this season.”

But Savage bursts out with laughter, almost falling out of his seat.

The former Derby man then explains why he was in stitches at the Gunners supporter’s claim.

“Manchester City are by far and away a better side,” the 44-year-old said.

“They’ve got a better squad than you, a better manager than you.

“Liverpool won the Champions League last year and they’re a better side.

“They’re far better defensively and going forward.”

The host went on to criticise one aspect of the Gunners squad.

Savage continued: “And the reason why Arsenal won’t win is you can’t defend.

“There’s too many errors and they’re ill-disciplined in defence.”

The fan was not finished, though, coming back with another big statement.

Tom shouted back: “If you go player for player and compare us to City and Liverpool, we’re superior.

This claim sent Savage over the edge.

The 606 presenter was left shocked as the fan said the Gunners stars were better ‘man for man’ than those of Manchester City or Liverpool

Throwing his hands up in the air, he said: “Don’t be so stupid.”

The fan gives an example, suggesting David Luiz was better than Virgil van Dijk, who was crowned UEFA European Player of the Year last week.

“You’re on a wind-up,” Savage simply replied.

It comes as the Gunners’ summer business has been slammed by Louis Saha.
