Arsenal had a pretty disappointing last season as the club missed out on a top four finish for the first time in 20 years. Initially, the club was expected to be one of the title challengers by TV and football pundits. While Arsenal had a pretty good start to the season, everything changed in the second half. For many fans, it felt like Arsene Wenger had lost control over his team for the first time.
Many fans started to show their disappointment by demanding Wenger’s resignation. Moreover, the future of star players such as Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil was also under doubt. However, all of this came to an end when Arsenal won the FA Cup. Fans started to believe that Wenger might still be the right man for the job – at least the majority shareholder, Stan Kroenke, thinks that way. Wenger has since signed a two-year contract extension with the club and will be leading his team out once again next season.
Arsenal will begin their new Premier League campaign against Leicester City at the Emirates. Despite the disappointments of the last season, Wenger has managed to sign the goal machine, Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac who was named the best left back in the Bundesliga last season. Apart from these two arrivals, fans are still hoping for the addition of at least one more big name before the summer transfer window closes.
Wenger has also managed to so far keep hold of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil. Hence, he has an excellent and experienced team at his disposal which can challenge big teams on all fronts.
These are the reasons why Arsenal football club is worth betting on for a title challenge. While many bookies do not believe Arsenal to be a threat in front of Liverpool, the Manchester clubs, Tottenham and Chelsea, we think they might surprise everyone. So the Sun Bets (https://www.sunbets.co.uk/) odds of 12/1 on Arsenal to win the Premier League title 2017/2018 looks good value.
Apart from the Premier League title, there are a number of other bets on Arsenal worth looking at. For instance, the Gunners have won three FA Cups in the last four years. Therefore, they are a good bet for winning the FA Cup once again. You can get 7/1 on the club to retain the FA Cup in the upcoming season.
The odds on Arsenal winning the Europa League are 8/1 which would be a significant trophy for the club to bring to the Emirates trophy cabinet.
What’s more amazing is that many fans are dreaming of a domestic double. The odds are 60/1 on them winning the Premier League and successfully defending the FA Cup in the upcoming season. Moreover, there are 80/1 odds on the Gunners landing the Premier League and Europa League trophies. These are some very appealing bets to be fair, but it all depends on how Arsenal line up next season.
They have to be determined and resilient if they are to win any major trophy. We all know Arsene Wenger has done it before and he can do it once again – he just has to ensure that his team remains dedicated.
Our guess is that Arsenal and Wenger will prioritise domestic tournaments, especially the Premier League. With new arrivals, fans are hoping to see the glory days return to the Emirates.
All eyes are now on Arsenal and how the club performs in the pre-season tour against a few big clubs. Lacazette has already opened his account after scoring for Arsenal against Sydney FC. The club is yet to face Chelsea, Benfica and Sevilla which will be significantly tougher teams to beat.
