  • Arsenal forward Bukayo Saka asked his national teammate and Manchester City fullback Kyle Walker to stop worrying about Arsenal's title ambitions
  • Arsenal have taken a lot of people by surprise and are looking like genuine title contenders after a stellar start to the season
  • Man City are hot on their heels but face a five-point deficit when the Premier League resumes after the World Cup

Manchester City defender Kyle Walker put in a comical request when he met up with Arsenal's Bukayo Saka at the England training camp.

The two were at St. Georges Park before departing for Qatar, after making it into Gareth Southgate's final 26-man squad.

But before the World Cup break, Saka is coming off of a surprise title charge that has seen Arsenal accumulate a five-point lead over the defending champions Man City.

The Gunners beat Wolves 2-0 over the weekend, while Pep Guardiola's side slumped to a shock 2-1 loss to Brentford.

During their interaction, Walker hilariously asked Saka if Arsenal are planning to stop winning anytime soon, to which Saka asked him not to worry about that.

There have been doubts about whether Arsenal are real title challengers, with many pundits believing they will stumble sometime soon.

However, Mikel Arteta's side has gone from strength to strength, only dropping points to Manchester United and Southampton this season.

Focus turns to Qatar for the next six weeks where England will play Iran, Wales and the USA in Group B.

England's squad in detail

Sports Brief had earlier reported that Gareth Southgate is a tournament football maverick. His methods have been largely unorthodox, but it has always been a case of the end justifying the means.

After Russia 2018 semi-finals and the Euro finals, his side can only aim higher. However, their run-up to Qatar has been short of convincing.

Their lacklustre run and subsequent elimination from the Nations League left a lot to be desired. Southgate needs answers and the short time for preparation before the Iran opener doesn't do him any favours.
