It is hard to say before the new Premier League season has even begun whether Arsenal will do better this time and be one of the sides in contention to lift the EPL trophy next May, but we certainly hope so and I for one am feeling quietly confident that the Gunners will push and make more of a fist of it.
Just as hard to predict, though, is which other clubs are going to be the strongest, as we saw last season that there are some very strong contenders and that things can soon change over the course of the season. We also saw the year before that a shock can still happen in football after the rank outsiders Leicester City beat all of the big boys to the title.
So assuming that Arsenal do not flop again this season, I have been thinking about who might be our main rivals for the title and even though Man City have spent big and look a huge threat going forward, while Chelsea have added some quality to the squad that romped it last time, the ones that worry me are Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.
For me the transfers of Lukaku and Matic have given an already strong side a big boost and we know that their manager has a knack of winning things. They won three trophies last season despite only finishing 6th and they were only just beat by the Spanish giants Real Madrid in the UEFA super cup this week, so do you agree that United are the team to beat if Arsenal are to be crowned champions?
