What do the Premier League clubs really think of Arsenal?

This article first appeared in the Guardian on 16 March 2018.

The Guardian understands that the FA have been informed of the allegation and that they have asked the Premier Leagues to examine the matter.

Premier League chairman Greg Dyke said on Monday that there was “no basis for such an allegation” and that he would be “concerned if a complaint was made”.

“We have an absolute right to make our decisions on matters of football, but we are also committed to respecting the integrity of our competitions and the integrity and independence of our governing bodies,” he said.

The Premier League’s rules on the use of drugs have been criticised by a number of clubs and players who believe they are unfair.

Last month, Manchester United players were charged with the use and possession of illegal substances, but they were not banned from playing for the next two seasons.
