Arsenal huge outsiders to win 2020/21 Premier League title

By on July 30, 2020

Arsenal are huge outsiders to win the Premier League title next season which only highlights how much work Mikel Arteta has to do to get us competitive again.

We went into the 2019/20 season full of confidence after what appeared to be an excellent summer of transfer business but things soon unravelled and we were well off the pace by the time Unai Emery was sacked in November.

Freddie Ljungberg oversaw things for a month until Arteta arrived in late December and although the Spaniard made big improvements in certain areas, Arsenal still ended up finishing down in eighth place.

It means we’re in danger of missing out on European football for the first time in 25 years and we need to beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday to book a place in the Europa League group stages.

After a torrid season, Arsenal finished a whopping 43 points behind champions Liverpool and were much closer to relegation than challenging at the top so it’s no wonder the online casinos have us as huge outsiders for the title next season.

Despite running away with it this year, Liverpool are surprisingly 13/8 second-favourites to retain their crown next season with Manchester City priced as the even money favourites to win the Premier League in 2020/21.

Manchester United’s recent resurgence has seen them move to 15/2 third-favourites to wrestle the title away from Liverpool and City while Chelsea are 14/1 to win their first title since 2017.

However, the bookies clearly don’t fancy Arsenal to be challenging next season as according to casinolariviera casino en ligne we are 66/1 to win the Premier League title next year – which is rather embarrassing for a club as big as Arsenal.

It highlights just how far we’ve fallen as we’re not even close to being considered title contenders anymore, and it’s obvious Arteta has a huge task to get us back where we belong.

Defence has been a clear issue in recent seasons and Arsenal need a complete overhaul of centre-backs. David Luiz, Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis and Calum Chambers just aren’t good enough. Rob Holding has struggled for form since returning from his serious injury and the jury is still out on Pablo Mari.

So we need to improve in defence if we’re to get back among the top four again. William Saliba will arrive this summer and he’s highly rated but it remains to be seen how he’ll adapt to life in England. Therefore, I’d love to see Arsenal go for a defender who has experience of the Premier League this summer to play alongside Saliba next season.

We also need a new central midfielder and a creative playmaker to improve the first team, while I think we also need some better quality squad players. A top class striker will also be needed if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leaves.

This is going to be a pivotal summer in the transfer window for Arsenal and the club will have to make some shrewd moves if we’re to see our title odds reduce before the 2020/21 campaign kicks off in September.
