Invincible Lauren believes Arsenal will win the Premier League, says ecstatic celebrations against Bournemouth weren't over the top, and thinks Tottenham's Top 4 hopes will collapse before the end of the season

  • “Why would I think that Arsenal will not win the Premier League?”
  • “Whatever happens [this season], Arsenal fans must be proud.”
  • “My worries are going away because the team showed that mentality that you need to win the title.”
  • “People will say that it was only Bournemouth, but they still had to bounce back from two goals down.”
  • “It's not ideal to concede a goal early in the game, but these things happen. It happened. Bournemouth scoring after 9 seconds is not something you can control.”
  • “I believe there should be more merit regarding Arsenal's display than the weaknesses of Bournemouth”
  • “There was nothing over the top about Arsenal's celebrations against Bournemouth”
  • “Arsenal is feeling the pressure, and I saw that against Everton”
  • “I believe Liverpool will finish inside the Top 4….[Spurs] always collapse at some point, and I believe they will collapse between now and the end of the season.”
  • The Invincibles generation was fantastic, and I would stick with them first, but if I had to pick someone from the current Arsenal squad to make it, then it would be Bukayo Saka

‘Lauren exclusively told Ladbrokes Fanzone

I'm proud of this Arsenal team, whatever happens, this season, but I think they will win the Premier League

I like to think positively, so why would I think that Arsenal will not win the Premier League? The team is doing well, playing a lot of good quality football overall, and they show us they can manage the pressure in adversity, so whatever happens, Arsenal fans have to be proud.

Very proud of this young bunch of players because they gave us the belief that we can win big games, the belief that we can win the Premier League, and whatever happens, I feel very proud because they've been fantastic since the start of the season.

One of my biggest concerns a few weeks ago is when you get to the stage where there is enormous pressure. Still, we saw in the last two games that they've been brilliant, especially the last one, people will say that it was only Bournemouth, but they still had to bounce back from two goals down.

When you're top of the table, there is big pressure there in the dressing room amongst the players, but they showed character and determination. My worries are going away because the team showed that sort of mentality that you need to win the title.

Arsenal should be receiving more praise for the victory against Bournemouth

It's not ideal to concede a goal early in the game, but these things happen. It happened. Bournemouth scoring after 9 seconds is not something you can control.
Arsenal pressed high up and everybody knew what to do at the moment, the passing game and the quality of their circulation of the ball, and the speed of the circulation of the ball was terrific.

Doing that for 90 minutes was not easy, and I believe there should be more merit regarding Arsenal's display than the weaknesses of Bournemouth.

There was nothing over the top about Arsenal's celebrations against Bournemouth.

When you're losing at home 0-2, you're top of the table, and you know that it's a big game with immense pressure, people don't realise how significant the pressure is to be there losing 0-2 to bounce back and win the game.

It was nothing over the top celebrating the way they did, it was a big celebration that they deserved to celebrate, but then, they needed to keep calm because there was still a long way to go.

Arsenal is feeling the pressure, but they are handling it

Arsenal is feeling the pressure, and I saw that against Everton. It's never easy to go to Goodison Park as it's somewhere Everton play well, so you will always feel that pressure. However, the response has been brilliant, along with their determination and resilience to manage all kinds of situations.

To manage the momentum when you're losing the game and you can lose your calmness, the team looks like they can bounce back and win these games under the pressure. They're still passing the ball, pressing high up, still defending deep when needed, and they've still played a good position and the team has managed to handle the pressure.

Saka is the standout star of the squad

I would pick the whole squad instead of one player of the season, but if I had to pick just one, then it's got to be Bukayo Saka. The boy has scored big penalties when the pressure is on, and he's scoring goals, as we saw against Man Utd when the team needed to step up and take some responsibility, he has done it against United and Liverpool.

With the pressure he makes in order to win that ball and score the second goal, he has been absolutely the best player for Arsenal this season.

The Invincibles generation was fantastic, and I would stick with them first, but if I had to pick someone from the current Arsenal squad to make it, then it would be Bukayo Saka.

Right now, the team doesn't need strengthening

I don't think that Arsenal needs to worry about summer signings at this moment in time, just believe in those players that we have already.

Whether or not we win the league is not going to be down to who we sign in the transfer window. It's to believe in the people we have now.

The 25-man squad we have in the Premier League right now, I believe in them and give them confidence until the end of the season. If we win the league, then we can think about who is going to sign, but right now, it's not the right time to think about who's going to join next year.

Liverpool will finish inside the Top 4 because Spurs always collapse

I believe Liverpool will finish inside the Top 4. Yesterday they showed an amazing display scoring seven goals against Manchester United. They are very strong; Salah and Firmino scoring goals, and they have a very strong squad, so I believe they will finish in the Top 4.

Newcastle United have been growing a lot, and they have been brilliant, but this season sometimes you get to the stage where you win or you get to your goal, I think people will lie down a little bit and relax.

At Newcastle, they have almost no expectations this season, they have good players and new coaches all together in this first year, so to be in the Champions League position is good, but I expect them to drop a bit.

Spurs somehow showed a very good game against Man City at home, very aggressive, and they played very well and very impressive going forward, but they always collapse at some point, and I believe they will collapse between now and the end of the season.
