Arsenal great Robert Pires believes the Premier League title race will be over if his former club lose to leaders Chelsea on Saturday.

Robert Pires was speaking at the TAG Heuer Premier League Pressure Test.

“It will be very difficult after the last game that we lost against Watford. It was terrible,” said the ex-France star.

“We have another chance next Saturday. For me this is a big final for the Premier League. If Chelsea beat Arsenal I think the Premier League is done.

“Chelsea play very well, they are a very good team, very compact. They have the Italian philosophy, they play together.

“Chelsea are maybe stronger but we need to believe in this opportunity. I think this is the last opportunity.”

Arsenal are 9 points adrift top placed Chelsea as the teams meet tomorrow at Stamford Bridge in a crunch tie.
