Arsenal are in four competitions this season, they are a top-six club, they are Europa League finalists and they have strengthed their squad significantly so there is no reason why this season will not be a successful one, the foundations are definitely there.
Of course, it would be nice to do what Manchester City did and win almost everything but we have to be realistic, Arsenal needs to set targets and do everything in their power to hit those targets.
It is highly probable that the club has done just that and I believe the following five targets are more than reasonable.
Still be a title contender after the festive period
I believe this is reasonable, I am not suggesting that we will win the title but to be within striking distance of the top is more than attainable. Tottenham was still a title contender after the festive period last season and if they can do it I do not see why Arsenal cannot this campaign.
A no brainer, it is unthinkable that Arsenal misses out again, too much money has been spent on strengthening the weak areas of the team and there is more than enough quality within the squad to finish top-four this season. There simply cannot be any excuses.
Win a domestic cup
Why not? It would be nice to lift the FA Cup but the Carabao Cup will do just fine. The fans deserve a day out at Wembley and another trophy in the cabinet would be more than welcome.
Win Europa League
The club owes the fans restitution after the humiliation at the hands of Chelsea in Baku and the only way that can happen is if they actually win the trophy and they will be one of the strongest teams in the competition.
Finish above Tottenham
Not the biggest priority simply because if they finish sixth and Arsenal finishes fifth it would be almost meaningless but not completely. We are talking bragging rights and restoring order once and for all and this target will be on every target is a must every campaign. It is simply a given.
