Bryan Robson has written off Arsenal´s chances of challenging for the Barclays Premiership title this season after the departure of midfield duo Patrick Vieira and Edu in the summer.

West Brom boss Robson believes that only Manchester United can pose a genuine threat to reigning champions Chelsea during 2005-06.

Robson, whose side were beaten 4-0 at Stamford Bridge in midweek, told PA Sport: "I do genuinely think that only Manchester United are capable of challenging Chelsea now. In all honesty I believe Vieira and Edu are massive losses for Arsenal. I just think Arsenal have lost a little bit of strength in the midfield area and do think they will fall down a bit because of that situation."
