So the 2015/16 season is upon us and there is a genuine belief this time that Arsenal can mount a serious title challenge and perhaps win the Premier League.
The Guardian have put together a quick preview video as we look forward to the new season…
The Odds on Arsenal
Arsenal’s official betting partners are Paddy Power, and they make the Gunners 4/1 third favourites to win the title. If you want to place this bet with Paddy Power you can join them and get a free bet. In our (perhaps biased) opinion these are good odds and well worth a bet. I’ll explain why…
Nobody else has a better squad than we do this season. There’s strength in depth in most positions. Yes we’d maybe have liked another defensive midfielder, but I think it’s right to give Coquelin his chance there and Arteta can play the role as well. At centre back I think we’re stronger than our rivals already, and of course signing Cech is a huge boost.
It’s the attacking positions where we really excel. The strength in depth is huge in the wide positions especially. There are goal threats all over the pitch, so we should be able to cover even the most severe injury crisis. Our style of play was a joy to behold in the second half of last season, and if we can carry on that form between now and Christmas it should set us up superbly for a strong challenge.
Paddy Power might be offering better odds due to our partnership with them. I guarantee that there will be points in the season when we’ll be a lot shorter than 4/1 so I personally will be having a few quid on that before the seson kicks off this weekend.
