Rio Ferdinand predicts how Arsenal will perform this season

Last season, Arsenal caught everyone off guard by mounting a title challenge that came remarkably close to securing them the league crown, rivalling Manchester City’s dominance.

This unexpected surge transformed Arsenal into a team to be reckoned with, and as the current campaign unfolds, fans hold high expectations for another title challenge.

Recognising their newfound potential to be title challengers, a feat that won’t be without its challenges due to strong competition from other clubs, Arsenal has proactively bolstered their squad by welcoming fresh talents. Notable signings include Declan Rice, Jurrien Timber, and Kai Havertz, whose prowess was highlighted by their victory in the Community Shield earlier this week.

Rio Ferdinand shares the sentiment that Arsenal will once again pose a formidable challenge to Manchester City’s title aspirations, fueled by their renewed strength and potential.

He tells TNT Sport:

‘Manchester United and Arsenal, two challengers. If anyone’s going to get close to (Man City) it’ll be those two.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have tasted what it feels like to be close to winning the league and the boys now understand the demands being placed on them.

If we just add that small extra effort in our matches, we could be champions at the end of this season, but we have to take it game by game, victory after victory until the end of the season.

  1. Arsenal and Man United will do their best to try and dethrone Pep Guardiola and his side from their spot atop the EPL hierarchy, a chase which has proven in vain of late.
    Just as Arsenal in the last campaign and Liverpool attempted in the campaign before.

    This campaign is sure to present another challenge to the Citizens.
    Arsenal is even hungrier than before and it may just come down to who wants it more.

  2. Arsenal have strengthened some areas and we congrats the club owners Edu and Arteta
    The forgotten area is up front a prolific striker who can score more than 25 goals per season I’m not sure if jesus can do with his injury history even if you combine him and Nketiah
    With champions league Premier league and FA Cup on line they have to go and recruit a prolific striker
    I believe this guy Kay Have will perform well like Robin van persie but it will take time for him to be at his best
    If you don’t want to spend money for new player in that position Trossar must play as number nine in starting eleven regularly bcoz this guy is good than jesus and Nketiah

    1. Trossard must play but he doesn’t necessarily need to need to start does he? We need impact from the bench too and Eddie isn’t that man. We will agree that if Trossard has started that game the intensity of the game would have swallowed him put but coming in fresh game him the force and freshness to be able to do what he did.
      My point is that the coaches know better than us because they have data we will never have and so we should trust their judgment and support the team instead of many criticizing like Lee Wanna-be…
      For me I am not looking beyond this first game. I love to sit at home glued to my TV and just enjoy the boys on red and white fill me with joy. Win, lose or draw, I am Arsenal.

      1. I agree with you Gogo. Trossard is a game changer. He can add alot of pressure especially when the team is chasing for a result. Nketiah in his side need to start in order to expect a score from him.

  3. To be sincere arsenal is here to compete for title against many,especially city,but the only problem arsenal has is number9, with jesus injury and nketiah can fill that spot.
    so instead of them havin goal issues they can fix in trossard he is more than capable with saka and matinelli in the wing

  4. Arsenal need a natural number 9 like Lewandowski,Jesus,Trossard and Nketia are not natural number 9 if Arsenal are serious about contention for EPL.
