BBC World Service have been speaking to former Arsenal striker Kanu and asked him whether his former club can win the title.
"Yes. It's all to do with belief and the heart the players have," the Nigerian said. "When I played there we had a lot of leaders, captains. Every player was a captain. They have to have players who stand up and push the others.
"Arsenal is a big club, without a trophy it will be a let down. If they move in the right direction they will win the league. Why not?"
"There's a real focus in our group this season, a real toughness, mentally. We know that we've got that ability to scrap and fight as well as play good football. If we can go there and perform like we think we can and keep to our game-plan we're confident we can get a result.
"If you assess Arsenal's last 10 games they've lost at home, the teams that have won have averaged four shots on target, with 43% possession. It tells you that you can go there and you don't need to dominate the ball, but you can dominate the space."
"Your confidence is linked with your last result and at Crystal Palace we responded well. From that we should have enough confidence to go into the game positively against Liverpool.
"This is a very important game where the result will of course be vital. It's not a result that will decide our title chances but in our heads we know it's very important."
Kano Pillars' 12-year unbeaten home league record in the Nigerian Premier Leaguecame to an end on Sunday as they lost 2-1 to Nasarawa United in Kano.
Goals from former Pillars player Manir Ubale and Bature Yaro inside 16 minutes stunned the home side and Rabiu Ali's strike at the start of the second half was not enough to prevent a first defeat in 202 matches at their fortress Sani Abacha stadium.
- Brendan Rodgers has yet to win in four Premier League matches against Arsenal (D1, L3). He only avoided defeat when his Liverpool team drew 2-2 in January 2013
- Martin Skrtel has scored three goals in his last two Premier League games against Arsenal
- Christian Benteke has scored 12 goals in his last 13 Premier League appearances
- Simon Mignolet has kept 11 clean sheets in 2015 - more than any other Premier League goalkeeper
- Arsenal could lose their opening two home matches of a top-flight campaign for only the third time, after 1908-09 and 1949-50
- They had attempted a league-high 40 shots after the first two rounds of fixtures but their goal conversion rate is only 3%.
- Olivier Giroud's next Premier League appearance will be his 100th. The Frenchman has scored 42 goals in 99 league games - only Thierry Henry (59), Ian Wright (56) and Emmanuel Adebayor (44) scored more in their first 100 league appearances
- Mesut Ozil misplaced just one of his 55 passes against Crystal Palace and has averaged 3.61 chances created per game in the Premier League in 2015 - a higher ratio than any other player
British sprinter Adam Gemili has been talking to Radio 5 live today, giving his views on Usain Bolt's 100m triumph.
"Gatlin has been so consistent but you can't fault Bolt - you can never can count him out because of how talented he is," said Gemili. "It was a close one, he's not winning as easy as he has been in the past."
Asked if Bolt "saved athletics", Gemili replied: "It was important but I don't think he saved athletics. It was just a battle of two sprinters and technically who's better.
"Athletics has had problems but I think we're coming out of that dark tunnel and Seb Coe is going to hopefully do good things. Everyone was a bit biased towards Usain Bolt yesterday and the majority of us are glad he delivered."
Liverpool look a little bit harder to play against this season, and it has taken a bit away from their attack. But they have won both their games so far, without conceding a goal, and keeping things tight is not a bad idea when you go to Emirates Stadium.Lawro's full predictions v comedian Jack Whitehall
The Football League have announced that there will be a minute's silence before all League Cup fixtures this week in memory of the victims of the Shoreham airplane disaster.
Matthew Grimstone and Jacob Schilt, two young footballers who played for Worthing United FC, were among those who prished in the tragedy.
Shaun Harvey, Chief Executive of The Football League, said: "This minute's silence will give football fans across the country the opportunity to pay their respects to Matthew, Jacob and all those who lost their lives in this terrible accident."
Chesterfield havesigned West Brom midfielder Liam O'Neil for an undisclosed fee.
The versatile 22-year-old, who can also play in defence, made two League Cup appearances for the Baggies last season.
"He's one for the future for us, having been tracked by the club for two-and-a-half years," said boss Dean Saunders.

Arsenal are the standard of opposition Liverpool must compete with to get into the top four so this provides a litmus test for Brendan Rodgers.
Liverpool rode their luck a bit with Coutinho's bolt at Stoke and offside decisions against Bournemouth but Rodgers' new recruits are stronger than last year's. Sometimes you need the rub of the green to kickstart a campaign and we know from two seasons ago Liverpool's potential if they gather momentum.
Alexis Sanchez' absence from the starting line-up for the defeat to West Ham was telling. He can be as influential for Arsenal as Suarez was for Liverpool.
Rotherham boss Steve Evans has said the club cannot afford to sign midfielder Joey Barton, claiming the club could not evenpay for his petrol.
Barton, 32, is currently without a team, having been released by Championship side QPR in May.
The former Newcastle midfielder had been set to join West Ham, but the move was cancelled after protests by fans.
"I don't think we could afford Joey's petrol, never mind Joey," Evans told BBC Radio Sheffield.
Ricky Coxhead: David Beckham. He's such a passionate humble guy who's played for the best and won it all. And also a great family man.
Jimmy Jamhands: Viv Richards is the greatest sportsman. Basically because he is Viv Richards.
Excellent reasoning Jimmy.
Roy Hodgson has delayed the planned announcement of his squad for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Switzerland.
The squad was due to be announced tomorrow but will now be named on Sunday due to the "large of number of players that still need confirming regarding availability and fitness".
Arsene Wenger is likely to keep faith with the team that sealed Arsenal's first win of the season. Mathieu Flamini is a doubt with an ankle problem while Danny Welbeck is still weeks off a return to training.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is a major doubt after limping off against Bournemouth with a foot problem. Emre Can is fit and ready to step into midfield should Brendan Rodgers be forced into making a change.
Disgraced Russian marathon runner Liliya Shobukhova is free to race again after her doping ban was reduced in return for helping the World Anti-Doping Agency.
Shobukhova's "substantial assistance" earned a seven-month cut in her existing ban of three years, two months - meaning her sanction expired at the weekend.
She was stripped of three Chicago Marathaon wins and one in London for blood doping.
Outgoing Fifa president Sepp Blatter has told the BBC that he is "clean" as investigations continue into corruption at world football's governing body.
Blatter, who has been president since 1998, will step down in February amid a criminal inquiry into allegations of systematic bribery.
"I know what I have done, what I have not done, I have my conscience and I know I'm an honest man. I am clean."

Liverpool's 100% start to the season will face its toughest test at Arsenal later on Monday. Brendan Rodgers' side have not sparkled yet but got the job done against Stoke City and Bournemouth.
The meeting with The Gunners will be informative as to how far Liverpool have moved on since they were thrashed 4-1 at The Emirates during a disappointing conclusion to last season.
It will also be a test for Arsenal against one of the clubs that will rival them for a top four place in the Premier League and they will hope to erase memories of the home defeat to West Ham United in their opening game.
Former racing driver and Formula 1 team owner Guy Ligier has died at the age of 85.
Ligier, worked as a butcher and in construction before turning to motorsport. He made his F1 debut aged 35 at the 1966 Monaco Grand Prix before buying his own team in 1974 when he purchased Matra Sports.
The team took Ligier's name and competed through to 1996.

The ATP found 20-year-old Kyrgios guilty of "aggravated behaviour" and served him with a 28-day ban and a £15,800 fine.
But both punishments will be waived if Kyrgios avoids any fines for verbal or physical abuse at ATP events over the next six months.

Malmo boss Age Hareide hasdefended one of his players over accusations that he insulted the Celtic team ahead of the team's Champions League play-off second leg tomorrow.
Goalkeeper Johan Wiland branded Celtic players "grisar" - a Swedish word that directly translates as "pigs" - in an interview with Swedish journalists immediately after Celtic's 3-2 first-leg win last week.
But Hareide said angrily: "If you are going to write about players, you have to know the words...the translation. You have to know the pronunciation because 'a pig' is something else in English than it is in Scandinavia."
Celtic lead 3-2 after the first leg.

The answers? Colin Jackson, Jonathan Edwards, Christine Ohuruogu and Mo Farah.
Nuri: Naim Suleymanoglu, the greatest sports person of all time.
For those not familiar with the man above, he became pound-for-pound the strongest man ever by lifting 3.17 times his body weight in the 1988 Olympics. Wowzers. In total he won three Olympic, seven world championships and six European titles and set 46 world records.

The paper reports that there will be no loan fee involved and that Milan will pay half of his £80,000 a week wages.
BBC Radio Northampton's Alex Winter:
"Pretty cruel on Leicestershire with rain ruining their pursuit ofback-to-back County Championship wins for the first time since 2010. Only 45 minutes of play was possible on day four at Wantage Road, with the visitors forced to settle for a draw despite needing just 86 more runs to win."
West Brom have rejected a written transfer request from Saido Berahino.
The striker has been the subject of a reported £15m bid from Tottenham.

"There will be no further comment."

Ben: Undoubtedly has to be Tiger Woods, has revolutionized the sport of golf and for 12 years was effectively unbeatable.
You have to feel for Rolanda Bell of Panama, who finished the 300m steeplechase in Beijing despite doing this...
BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle atTrent Bridge:
"Two important wickets for Samit Patel inched Nottinghamshire closer to victory on the final afternoon of their Championship match against Warwickshire. Patel removed both William Porterfield and Tim Ambrose to leave the visitors on 157-6 at tea, still 183 runs behind."
BBC Radio Wales Sport's Nick Webbat Old Trafford:
"Lancashire run into some stubborn Glamorgan resistance on the final afternoon at Old Trafford, claiming just one wicket in the session through James Faulkner, as they look to seal promotion. Glamorgan captain Jacques Rudolph reached a stubborn 50 off 150 balls while Chris Cooke also dug in, as Lancashire raced through their overs."
It's a case of one in, one out at Ibrox, with defender Darren McGregor making a surprise exit - just three months after being named the club's player of the season.
The 30-year-old made 50 appearances under former bosses Ally McCoist, Kenny McDowall and Stuart McCall, scoring five goals.
But the arrival of Mark Warburton as manager saw the former junior player drop down Rangers' pecking order and he leaves by mutual consent.
