Freddie Ljungberg says that no-one in world football can compete with the spending power of thr Russian empire, but the Gunners will not give up the fight to reclaim the Premiership crwon.
Since the emergence of Roman Abramovich the transfer market has been thrown into disarray with greatly inflated transfer fees and the fact that all other club have wait till Chelsea have chosen their transfers and then pick at the bones.
However, the Arsenal midfielder is not letting this deter the Gunners with the Swede claiming Arsenal CAN win the title despite the Blue spending machine.
'They have financial power that no one else is even close to. There is no way anyone can compete with them at that level. They have the ability to pay twice as much as anybody else.
'But no one at Arsenal is giving up the championship. We are very focused and positive, and hopefully we can beat them this year.
'We use it as an inspiration. If we can finish above a team with all that wealth, then it makes it that bit more satisfying.
'We go about things differently at Arsenal. We buy players to fit into our system and develop them, and you could see how the young players came through last season. What the boss is brilliant at is building a team.'
Ljungberg is currently carrying a slight injury but is hopeful of being fully fit in time for the new season.
'It is not serious and it is getting better, but the last thing the club want me to do is rush things,' Ljungberg told The Sunday Mirror.
'When I come back I want to be fit and I am hopeful about the first league game of the season.'
