Arsenal have a stronger squad than Premier League leaders Chelsea, according to West Brom manager Tony Pulis.

The Gunners currently sit in fourth place, nine points adrift of the Blues at the summit following two defeats in their last three matches.

Meanwhile, Antonio Conte’s men have won 12 league matches in a row as they look to pull clear of the chasing pack.

Pulis, however, thinks the Gunners have more quality in their squad after Olivier Giroud’s late winner downed the Baggies.

“If you look at the players who were not playing and not in the team today, and then you look at Chelsea’s, I think Arsenal have definitely got the stronger squad,” he said.

“They have most probably got the staying power to see them through and it will be interesting to see what Chelsea do.

“I think Chelsea will spend, I don’t think [owner Roman] Abramovich will sit back on what he’s got.

“It will be an interesting window for the top four or five clubs.”
