Can Arsenal win the EPL in this decade??? In 2003-04 season Arsenal won the EPL, grab their 13th title in first division football of England. They didn’t lose a single match throughout the season, hence claimed their invincible tag, which no team has done before in Premier league. But since then they have never lift the trophy again.
If we consider this season, Gunners are 7 points behind to league leader Chelsea. There are some beliefs in the fan base regarding to grab the EPl title this season, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger ruled them out & he said they are nowhere near to win the title.Now the question is when they will win the EPl title again??? Can they win it in next five years???? Yes, they can. No doubt about that. But they need to play well & also need to overcome the physiological barrier. Let’s discuss some issue where they are doing well & those issues they need to focus in upcoming season.
World Class Signings:
After a long period of time, Arsenal is doing pretty well in transfer windows. Adding class player like Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez in the squad is itself a bold step. Signing of Mathieu Debuchy, Gabriel Paulista, Danny Welbeck and Calum Chambers proves they are in strong position financially, which is always positive sign for any club.
Arsene Wenger is on his way to make a great team once again. This team already has young talents like Theo Walcott, Ramsey, Kieran Gibbs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere, who are doing great job for the team. Ozil, cazrola are adding some extra quality in the team & Alexis Sanchez, the Superman of the team. Having so many options in midfield & defense, it’s easy for a manager to rotate the squad. Injuries always play a crucial role in Arsenal’s previous season, but they can overcome this problem with so many options in upcoming season.
Goalkeepers: Wojciech Szczęsny & David Ospina both are doing good job in between three bars but it’s not enough to win the EPl title. They need someone more reliable in that position like Chelsea has Petr Cech for long time, now Courtois & Manchester United has Edwin van der Sar & now Dea gea. At the end of the day, Goalkeeper & defense will win trophy for you.
Defensive Midfield: It’s been a long time problem for Arsenal; recently Francis Coquelin has done a great job for the team in that position. Their improvement in recent performance proves they need a defensive midfield badly, & Coquelin’s impact was a bonus for them. So adding another defensive midfield will be a good option.
Striking Force: Let us face this fact straight, Arsenal need a world class goal scorer upfront. They need a prolific goal scorer; Oliver Giroud & Welback are not enough to win them the EPL. There will be always big difference in quality between the striker they have & striker like Didier Drogbra, Van Persie, Sergio Ageuro, Theiry Henry. They need more quality in this particular section.
Football is always a game of uncertainty; it’s tough to predict what will happen tomorrow. But after a long time Arsenal is on the right path to get back their glory days once again. But they need to focus on their weakness & strength their squad according to that.
