Odds on Arsenal winning the title have dropped since opening day win

Arsenal current run of form and a solid start to the season has brought about talks of a first title win since 2004 and some of the bookies seem to agree.

The Gunners have strengthened their team in this transfer window by adding the likes of Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes.

Both players were in fine form when the Gunners opened their Premier League campaign with a 3-0 away win over Fulham.

Arsenal will look to build on winning last season’s FA Cup by ending this campaign inside the top four, but winning the title is also not entirely out of the picture.

Before their game against Fulham, some bookies had made Mikel Arteta’s men 33/1 to win the title.

After they beat the London side in a fine performance, those odd has been dropped to 25/1.

North London rivals, Tottenham suffered an opening day defeat at home to Everton and their odds of winning the title remains 50/1, Jose Mourinho has even emerged as one of the first managers to be fired in the Premier League.

With a lot more games to play, if the Gunners can put together a winning run, it will make their odds of winning the title drop even further.

Never say never.

    No chance.
    “Stan Kroenke’s lack of Arsenal spending exposed by new financial analysis
    New financial reports show that Arsenal have received no funding for transfers in the last five years from majority shareholder Stan Kroenke as Mikel Arteta looks to further improve his squad”

    I know it’s just a Daily Star headline, but therein lies the truth. The multi-billion dollar LA RAM’s stadium and the low life Kroenke will not even lend his own ‘sole owner’ club money for players. He will not even lend himself money…his Arsenal. Why…because he doesn’t care one iota for Arsenal or the SUPPORTERS.

      Not on my money

      Our only hope on winning the league is Dangote.

    Mikel Arteta’s great work will make Arsenal serious title contenders in 3 years. Till then let’s keep the faith and not be deluded.

      I agree, though I think we can challenge as early as next season if all the chips fall in place…

  3. Speedy says:

    433 is the dream formation with de addt of party and aouar we could be in dream land come may and auba needs to put more chances away should av gotten a hatrick

  4. Sean says:

    Martinez £20m
    Torreira £25m
    Kolasnic £15m

    Those are 3 lined up at this moment in time to bring some money in. This would be enough to activate Thomas Parteys release clause of £45m very soon. Their wages will cover Thomas’.

    Leaves some more money left to invest in a back up GK or to add to the Aouer transfer fund where we would still need to sell about £30m worth of our players;

    Chambers £12m
    Papa £4m
    Guendouzi £20m or Elneny £10m.

    We need to get rid then finish our window with the 2main Targets.

    1. Sean says:

      Leno
      Bellerin Holding Gabriel Teirney
      PARTEY Cabellos
      AOUER
      Willian Laca Auba

      Subs that can come on to do damage or see a game out;
      Pepe
      Martinelli
      Saka
      Xhaka
      Luiz
      Saliba
      Mari
      Soares
      AMN

      Not a bad selection headache to have if Mikel can get the 2 lads above in

    2. Zamind says:

      That would leave the team too thin, with so many games to play. Each position should have at least 2first team quality players to last the season.
