Arsenal remains on course to a 2022/23 Premier League title. But will Mikel Arteta deliver the crown with Manchester City closing in on the PL leaders at every chance? The Gunners undoubtedly remain the favourites for most bookies, albeit the completion remains stiff. With the Bet365 bonus code, you can place an outright bet on Arsenal to win the 2022/23 Premier League title.
Will Arsenal Get their 14th Premier League Trophy ?
Arsenal has so far won 13 Premier League titles, excluding a first-division trophy before PL became a breakaway league in 1991. Their last Premier League trophy was in 2003/4. The last Premier League honours for the Gunners were especially remarkable because they went unbeaten that season, bagging a total of 90 points in 38 topflight matches.
More than 19 years later, Arsenal’s desire to bag another Premier League crown remains a highly sought-after glory. It is nearly 5 years since the most-decorate Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, left the club.
Wenger got replaced by Unai Emery but he would only last a season and a half. A replacement was sought in Fredrik Ljungberg. However, the Swedish tactician lasted 24 days as the Arsenal Manager between 29th November and 23rd December 2019.
According to the club’s official website, Arsenal has won 47 trophies, cutting across various competitions. They have been League champions 13 times, 14-time FA Cup winners, and twice League Cup winners. Moreover, Arsenal has a European Fairs Cup trophy, a European Cup title, and 16 community Shield titles.
Such is the decorated history of a club that is yet to be relegated more than 100 years since they were promoted to the English top flight.
Will Mikel Arteta Deliver A PL Title After More Than 19 Years of Waiting?
The years after the departure of Arsene Wenger have been torrid for Arsenal. The Gunners have had some of the worst campaigns domestically and in European competitions.
However, the arrival of Mikel Arteta seems to be the magic wand that the Gunners needed to take the right shots to a Premier League title race. Arteta has been the best replacement since Wenger left, and he is leaving nothing to chance. But do the Gunners have the strength to compete for the PL crown?
After 167 games, Arteta has delivered 100 wins, 24 draws and 34 losses, translating to a 1.94-point average for the Spanish tactician. As a former assistant to Pep Guardiola, Arteta’s tactics have been seen to mirror his compatriot’s, especially ball possession style of playing.
The clock is fast ticking to the end of the season. A total of 27 PL games have been played, and Arsenal remains table-toppers, 5 points ahead of Man City. Arsenal has 62 goals, an average of 2.29 PL goals so far. They have conceded 25 goals, translating to an average of 0.92 goals leaked in every game.
The impressive stats mean the Gunners have not only been exceptional offensively but also their defence has been remarkably solid, thanks to young talents that have earned the club 12 clean sheets in 27 league games.
The remaining games do not look easy either, but for a team that is in top form, perhaps the biggest hurdles in the next 11 games are matches against resurgent Liverpool away from home, an away game against Manchester City and a home match against Chelsea FC. Arsenal is also set to play against Newcastle, another team that has shown great promise this season and currently sits in the top six. When everything is mirrored from a success angle, it means 2022/23 Premier League has shaped into a race between Arteta and his former boss, Pep Guardiola. The second Premier League meeting between the two Spanish tacticians season will be a great showdown.
