Can Arsenal win the Premier League this season? by RM
Arsenal have hit form at exactly the right time and, after victory over Newcastle in their last encounter, currently sit third in the Premier League. That is just one point behind Manchester City and a further seven behind leaders Chelsea, who have a game in hand. Arsene Wenger has already dismissed any talk of a last-gasp push for top-flight glory, but supporters remain excited about a dramatic title challenge. Here, we take a brief look at this Arsenal side and whether they could go on to win the title this year.
Of course they can, but it would require Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea to slip up. If Chelsea are to slip up, you can keep up to date with all the tips and news with blue square. The Blues are on course to win their first league title since 2010 and it would be difficult to argue against that. Conversely, with the form that Arsenal are currently in, and the fixtures that both sides have left to play, nothing is impossible. It would be foolish to write off Wenger’s side just yet.
Unfortunately for Gunners supporters, they are probably not going to win the title this year. However, fans should be in a positive mood when heading into next season. Arsenal have some confident players and others, including Olivier Giroud, have exceptional strength in character and can bounce back after poor performances.
Despite a ‘disappointing’ campaign, the Gunners are in the FA Cup semi-finals and are just one point off second in the Premier League. If Wenger’s side can improve next year to a level deemed ‘good’, then they will secure silverware of some kind. After their recent Champions League defeat to Monaco, they may target a good run in that competition next year.
If the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil continue their recent good form, then anything is possible. However, the most important thing for the Gunners this year is finishing in the top four and retaining the FA Cup. All in all, that would certainly be a successful year and then Wenger’s side can plan ahead for a title challenge next season.
