Can Arsenal win Premier League next season 2015-2016
Could this side win them the Premier League? It’s been a very interesting season for Arsenal Football Club. From one of the worst starts in their club’s history to a possible second-placed finish in the Premier League and an FA Cup.
The Gunners started the season poorly and whilst Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United were all firing above them, their top-four hopes were in real jeopardy.
However, after re-finding form, Arsene Wenger‘s men clawed themselves back into a strong position and since losing 2-1 in the North London Derby at White Hart Lane, they are unbeaten in the league.
Although a title-push has probably come too late for Wenger and co., next season could be a real successful one for the red side of North London, so lets look at what possible team they could field in the 2015/2016 campaign.
We expect Arsenal to be fairly busy this Summer with more faces leaving than coming in, but there could still be a few new faces especially in the midfield.
Wenger is expected to bring in a new holding-midfielder with Morgan Schneiderlin and William Carvalho linked. Despite Francis Coquelin‘s sudden development, the Frenchman probably won’t be a regular starter next year.
Another area Arsenal will want to improve is in between the sticks. Wojciech Szczesny has been dropped after a dismal season which ended with two costly errors against Southampton at St Marys.
Since then, the Pole has been replaced by David Ospina and despite his consistent performances, there are still worries over his future at the club.
In terms of replacement, Petr Cech from Chelsea is the only real keeper that has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium.
Whether Wenger adds anyone else is yet to be seen, but could this team possibly challenge for the title?
Petr Cech, Hector Bellerin, Laurent Koscielny, Gabriel Paulista, Nacho Monreal, Morgan Schneiderlin, Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud.
A new striker could possibly be signed with just Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck as options, but after a superb season for The Gunners, it’s likely that the Frenchman will continue to be Wenger’s number-one choice.
What are your thoughts on this team then? What changes would you make?
