Which trophy should Arsenal be targetting this season?

What trophies can Arsenal win this season? by Ghost mode

When you look at the current Arsenal side, you would not have thought that they won an FA Cup 2 seasons ago, and that Mikel Arteta is still the manager of the football club despite not securing any European places last season.

Basically, the only 3 titles Arsenal have a shot at winning are the Premier League, The EFL Cup and the FA Cup. It is all going to be domestic for the Gunners this season and the one competition they have the best chance in is the League Cup.

We spent the most money out of any club in England. So realistically, the Gunners should be expected to at least win one trophy. The EFL Cup will not be an easy competition.

Manchester City have won it for 4 out of last 5 seasons and would most likely win it again but Arsenal have all the tools they need to beat them to it.

We can all currently agree that winning the EPL is just out of reach for this present Arsenal, considering the strength of the teams fighting for the PL title. With that being said, the fact that the Gunners will not be playing any continental football this season as they failed to qualify for the Champions League, the Europa League and the Conference League. This gives them a huge advantage over the bigger teams; eg the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool, to beat them for the League cup.

They will have no need to always rest players and will undoubtedly have a fitter squad then most top clubs who are in Europe.

Fighting for the league title will not be an easy task for Arteta and his team even with the added advantage of not playing in Europe

They also definitely have a chance at winning the FA Cup but there will be a lot of heavy hitters vying for that more prestigious competition, especially the likes of Manchester United who are extremely desperate for a trophy after a 4-year drought.

Other than the most important target of reaching the Top Six, I think we should take no chances and go all out to win the League Cup.

  1. Target the top 4 “trophy” many used to mock (myself included).

    Top 6 “trophy” at a bear minimum. If we finish below that then Arteta and nearly 3 years is enough to judge not good enough.

    No more excuses, time to face reality and the truth of the table.

    1. Declan, I am with you. Arsenal need to give every trophy and the League their best shot and see how far they can go. Arsenal do not have the luxury to take any competition or trophy lightly.
      The Club does not have to manage playing in Europe this year and without this “distraction” we will see how good the manager and players are relative to domestic opposition.

  2. Amanda Staveley has told you We can forget the top 4 unless Stan open his wallet right up Newcastle will be buying big in January and the following transfer window

  3. I don’t understand what this “top 6” target is. Wenger was fired for finishing 5/6th. Emery was fired for finishing 5th. When Arteta joined us we were already a top 6 club targeting top 4, so he took us backwards and now finishing top 6 is supposed to be an achievement? What does top 6 give us anyway? That EUROPA league nonsense again.

    We MUST target top 4 this season and if Arteta does not deliver Champions league qualification then he should leave! When we dropped out of top 4 how many chances did Wenger get to turn things around before he was fired? 1 and 1/2 seasons is what he got.

  4. I can’t understand how getting top 6 is classed as a good season,
    We are arsenal we should be in the top 4 at least every year, but after this season we should be aiming top 4 then 3,2,1st
    This year we are not I think
    Chelsea 1
    City. 2
    Liverpool 3
    United 4
    Arsenal 5
    Spurs. 6

  5. I think the top 4 trophy should be prioritised this season. CL is more important to this club and anything else is a bonus. CL can not be attained every season because of the competition from rivals each year but being out of it year after year and not being able to play in Europe at all is the death knoll to AFC. There isn’t an excuse going that could excuse us from being out of Europe this season but not challenging for top 4 this with only the league to play for weekly would be a total disaster.
