What I have seen a lot of recently is predictions about whether Arsenal will finish top-four, will they finish above Tottenham and so on but I am struggling to find anyone predicting Arsenal challenging for the title.
OK, on the face of it that would appear ridiculous when you consider the gap between Arsenal and the top two of Man City and Liverpool.
But people seem to have short memories, two seasons ago Liverpool finished fourth on 75 points, a whopping 25 points behind Man City, last season the Reds finished second on 97 points, just a single point behind City and were crowned European Champions.
How did they make such a leap and increase their points total by 22 points?
Well, in the main, they bought well and strengthened their weak areas.
That is exactly what Arsenal have done more or less, there may be one or two areas that remain weak but no one cannot say that that the club have not addressed areas of concern.
This Arsenal team is clearly stronger than what we had last season and there is no reason why we cannot see a significant increase in our points total.
Do I think we will win the title? No, I do not but do I believe we can win the title? Yes, I do.
Liverpool has proven that you can make that massive jump with the right signings and there is no reason why Arsenal cannot do the same.
So, finishing top-four should not be the target for Arsenal, winning the Premier League should be.
