Expectations for Arsenal’s Season

By on September 10, 2020

Arsenal have been a bit out of their depth in the last few seasons. They’ve been out of the title race for virtually 15 years and have lost their status as a regular top four club so have struggled to get into the Champions League for a number of years. However, manager Mikel Arteta has reunited the fan base, got the club believing again and has improved performances on the pitch so there is now genuine belief that Arsenal can get back to where they belong.

We’ve had plenty of down-time over the past six months so many football fans and punters have had to find alternative ways to ensure that they are still getting their football and gambling fix from other avenues. Many bookies have seen a trend of punters migrating to their online casinos markets, and when looking at Max Casinos you can see why. They are offering some of the best roulette and card tables tied in with their wide variety of slots machines alongside huge sign up offers for all new customers that have been jumping on the trend; and even with the football season restarting again this weekend, this isn’t due to slow down.

Arsenal’s best bit of business this summer will be securing the signature of their current captain and top goalscorer last season, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. With him in the side they are always going to look threatening as he scored 29 goals in all competitions last year, so Auba is the type of player you need in your side to win you games. But Aubameyang doesn’t just bring goals, he is also a leader who is full of passion so it will be a huge boost once he puts pen-to-paper on a new three-year deal that has reportedly been agreed.

However, the main problem for Arsenal in recent seasons has been the centre of their defence. They have been woeful at the back and give away far too many cheap goals so it’s important Arteta finds a way to tighten things up. Thankfully Arsenal have signed two hugely promising young centre-backs in Gabriel and William Saliba so hopefully they are the answer to Arteta’s problems in defence.

If the Gunners improve at the back then they should be quietly confident of making a real push to get back into the top four this season. The FA Cup win last year proved Arsenal can mix it with the best teams on their day so it’s time for them to do it over the course of an entire campaign. Rivals such as Tottenham and Leicester should be within their sights but Arteta will hope to compete with the likes of Chelsea and Man Utd so this is a season Arsenal fans can certainly be excited for again.
