Sol: I'll help Gunners' title tilt

Former England international Sol Campbell insists he can play a major part in helping Arsenal to land the Premier League title this season.

Campbell, 35, who is set to rejoin the Gunners until the end of the season, also wishes he had never left the club in 2006.

In six weeks Arsene Wenger's team have cut the gap to leaders Chelsea, from 11 points to three. Even Chelsea captain John Terry admitted that he considered Arsenal out of the title race after the Blues beat them 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium in November.

Many feel the Gunners' relative inexperience could count against them in a title race but Campbell insists he would be able to help address that shortcoming.

The defender was a key part of both the double-winning sides of 2002 and 2004.

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

"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."
