It’s been 18 years since Arsenal last won the Premier League – The famous 2003/04 Invincible season. Bukayo Saka was two years old & Mikel Arteta was playing his football in Scotland.
Roll on 18 years The Gunners have their best chance of winning a title since, with them currently sitting top of the Premier League table at the halfway mark & five points clear of their closest title rivals, Manchester City.
However the question on everyones lips is can Arsenal win it?
Rio Ferdinand has declared the Premier League trophy will end up at Emirates Stadium this season, insisting Arsenal have the “confidence, quality and calmness to take the title”. The former Manchester United player is adamant the tide is changing and the trophy will have a new home in May.
Rio Ferdinand: “I think it’s a wrap. I’ve got to be honest, I do. No matter what results Arsenal get against Man City, I still think Arsenal have enough confidence, quality and calmness to take the title.”
Arsenal still have to face Manchester City twice with the outcome of them two games holding the weight which could potentially tell us who will win the title this season. The Gunners will host their title rivals at the Emirates in two weeks’ time, in a blockbuster clash on 15 February, before travelling to the Etihad Stadium on 26 April, by which time the title-race pressure may be it’s maximum.
