Sol Campbell believes he can provide Arsenal with the experience they need to land the title.

Arsène Wenger’s side are in the hunt for the Premier League crown after cutting the gap between themselves and Chelsea from 11 points to just three in the space of six weeks. But critics suggest that, while Arsenal are technically superior to their rivals, their relative youth may hinder them when the title race reaches its final lap.

According to Campbell, that's where he comes in. The 35-year-old won the ‘double’ at Highbury in 2002 and was the defensive rock of the 'Invincibles' side which completed an unbeaten season two years later. If Campbell returns to Arsenal, he wants the impart the knowledge of those past glories to the present squad.

"The likes of me and William [Gallas] have seen it all before, and Cesc [Fabregas] too, that's what it's all about really," said Campbell.

"It's not so much dragging them over the line but just showing when you've got that green light to keep them going.

"They are fantastic guys and great players. But as the games come thick and fast and you've got to get a win here or a draw, and it's the fifth game [in a couple of weeks] and everyone is tired, getting the lads over the line and getting that result is what's important.

"Those points add up at the end of the season."
