Our resident Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are often caught referencing ‘Chelsea’ by the bar but this is simply born out of the fact that Gooners can’t stand the Blues and are looking to steal the title off their London rivals next season.
Following the return of Jose Mourinho to England and their subsequent capture of former Gunners captain Cesc Fabregas, the rivalry has been stepped up a notch once more and although the Blues had all of the bragging rights last term, the feeling is that Arsenal could be a major threat to them retaining the title next term.
With Petr Cech having all but completed his eye-catching move across London to Emirates Stadium, that signing alone will make Arsene Wenger’s men that much more resilient at the back with Arsenal fans having had to put up with errors from the likes of Manuel Almunia, Lukasz Fabianski and Wojciech Szczesny in recent seasons.
To add to that, Arsenal always seem to suffer long-term injuries to some of their key players but every time we get to this stage of the year, Gunners fans note that if they managed to keep everybody fit while adding two or three more bodies, they could be the real deal.
The evidence so far suggests that with Cech in the bag and more reinforcements set to follow, Arsenal could finish much closer to the Blues and potentially ahead of them by the time the 2015/16 campaign finishes.
That’s why we’ve noted five ways Arsenal can beat Chelsea to the biggest prize of them all – the Premier League title – next season.
