Fans at the Emirates are as optimistic as they’ve been for a number of years following last season’s title charge, not to mention the arrivals of Declan Rice, Jurrien Timber and Kai Havertz.
Although there’s plenty of promise in North London, last season was the third consecutive campaign without a trophy, and Mikel Arteta will need to deliver silverware sooner rather than later.
The odds suggest the EFL Cup is the Spaniard’s best chance this season, priced at 7/1, whilst they are the 8/1 second favourites for the league, but as the Gunners found out last season, out-pointing Manchester City is doable over half a season; but over a full season it is extremely difficult.
Liverpool twice got within a point of City, amassing totals of 92 and 97 points and still wound up empty-handed, and in a season where almost everything seemed to click into place, they still came up short.
Gabriel Jesus missing nearly half a season through injury could’ve been a huge blow, though Arteta will have been pleased with how his side coped in his absence, and it wasn’t until the injury to William Saliba that the wheels came off.
In Eddie Nketiah and Havertz, he has two options capable of filling the role while the Brazilian has missed the start of the season.
The midfield also looks stronger, with Rice taking the place of Granit Xhaka, though the injury to Timber is far from ideal after his bright start in an Arsenal shirt.
The Gunners have been hugely impressive over the opening weeks of the campaign too, amassing 13 points from their opening five fixtures - including an emphatic 3-1 success over Manchester United at Old Trafford; a game in which Rice bagged his first goal in Arsenal colours in,
Arteta has retained his tried and trusted 4-3-3 formation, but whether that system is tweaked against tougher opposition remains to be seen, but there’s no reason to think with the added depth – not to mention the quality in the first XI – that Arsenal can’t go on a run in all three cups.
Of course much will depend on Arsenal’s position in the title race as to what cups, if any, they do prioritise.
