We all know that it is getting harder and harder to win the Premier League title, and the old certain Big Four of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Man United is now consigned to history. All four of those have now had to endure a season below 4th place recently, and the emergence of Moneybags Man City, Tottenham’s kids and even Everton are improving and fighting for positions in the Champions League so who is best placed to win the title in this coming campaign?
This is what Arsene Wenger said: “It’s very difficult at the moment to evaluate the real forces in the Premier League,”
“Man United has bought, City has bought many players, Liverpool has bought, we have bought, Chelsea have bought, Tottenham have a young group that’s together for a long time, it’s very open and it’s very difficult for me, like certainly for you to predict exactly what will happen.”
The Boss has already predicted that Chelsea will still be up there after last years win, but Tottenham have the handicap of playing at Wembley while White Hart Lane is being rebuilt, but also have the League’s top scorer for two seasons running, Harry Kane. You can’t write them off any more….
Man City have Pep Giuardiola, who has spent fortune’s of making his own team. He will not be keen to go two season’s without a trophy and the team should be more organized this time around….
Man United are spending money like water as usual. They also have the second-season Mourinho-factor, and have brought in Romelu Lukaku to add more goals. They will be much more dangerous this season.
Everton may have lost Lukaku but they are very ambitious indeed, and have reinvested heavily. Wenger didn’t mention them, but I seem to remember our defeat to them truly derailed our title chances last season….
But don’t forget that Arsenal have also got a better squad. We have kept Alexis, Ozil and the Ox. If Lacazette can get as many goals as he does in France we can easily match the other big teams, and Kolasinac looks like a powerful beast with his forward runs. And we may still get Lemar…..
So tell us who you think will win the title in the comments below, but let’s do a poll to see how Arsenal fans honestly think we will finish at the end of the season….
