Micah Richards reveals one reason Arsenal may struggle initially

The aspiration of every club in the Premier League is to kick off the season with victories, and Arsenal is no exception.

With the last league title triumph dating back to 2004, the Gunners are keenly motivated to reclaim their championship status and endeavour to secure a triumph by the next summer.

In a bid to fortify their squad, Arsenal has welcomed new additions such as Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, and Jurrien Timber. These signings have generated heightened optimism among fans, setting the stage for a promising season.

Given their performance in the previous campaign, the consensus among most pundits is that Arsenal is poised to be a formidable title contender once again. However, Micah Richards holds a different perspective, particularly in the initial stages of the season.

Richards said, as quoted by Football365:

“I was close to picking Arsenal to win the title this season, because no team has ever won it four years in a row,” Richards said.

“But, they are without Gabriel Jesus at the start of the season and I think that is just going to kill them.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus is a key player for us, but we cannot rely on just a few individuals to do well in any season, so the Brazilian will be a huge loss for us, but not the biggest.

Arsenal has quality everywhere in the squad and we expect others to step up and keep the wins coming.

  1. Agree with him. We need fit and firing Jesus to win the PL. I backed him to get 20 PL goals this season and Arsenal to win the league . But due to his injury things will be very difficult .
    I hope he is back very soon

  2. Who want to listen to these guys? I guess all so called “pundits” are old players, and football players never learn how to use the human brain for intellectual purposes. They are ball players, for pete’s sake! Why do they talk and embarrass themselves all the time?

    1. If football players never learn to use the human brain, how do you explain Arteta’s success? Of Flamini’s success?

  3. I hope Havertz does step up, he looked good against city with 2 clear chances but needs to be ruthless,
    Hopefully Trossard can also add to the attack without weakening the midfield.
