For most of the 2022/23 Premier League campaign, Arsenal led the way and looked like they would be declared champions. However, as the business end of the season approached, things started to fall apart, and Manchester City, the defending champions, were ready to pounce, and they did, securing the title. So, it begs the question, how can Arsenal win the Premier League title next season?

It’s arguably the biggest question ahead of the new campaign, and analysis is becoming increasingly common with an infinitely more knowledgeable fan base, which is reflected as  far afield as the level of sophistication in casino games like Football Studio Live. These types of games have become very attractive to an increasingly knowledgeable audience, keen to prove themselves right. Everyone has an opinion and has looked at what Arsenal need to do, with the driving force being how the Gunners fared last season, especially towards the end of the campaign when things went wrong.

Of course, the first thing Arsenal must do is add more quality to their ranks and improve what they have on the playing staff front, which they’re already pressing ahead with. Kai Havertz has signed from Chelsea, Jurrien Timber from Ajax and Declan Rice from West Ham. They’re three top-level players who will make a difference immediately, and they may not be the only new faces at the Emirates this summer.

What’s key to note about the new signings made by Arsenal so far is that the trio all fit the profile of player that manager Mikel Arteta is looking for. They’re young and energetic but also experienced. All three will have no problem competing on multiple fronts from when the first ball of the season is kicked until the last. And they’re an upgrade on departing players such as Pablo Mari and Granit Xhaka.

New arrivals, especially when they’re better than the players they’re replacing, will always give Arsenal more of a chance to win the title next season. But correcting a couple of things that may have hindered the Gunners last season will also have an impact. For example, when William Saliba was lost to injury, Arsenal really struggled, but now they have Timber. At times, the team lacked leadership; step forward Declan Rice, who has captained West Ham and is renowned for being a leader.

For some of an Arsenal persuasion, last season was a disappointment because of how things ended. But using last term will potentially give the Gunners a better chance of winning the title this time. The players now know where they went wrong and what it will ultimately take. They have that much-needed experience, especially for a young group, and using it wisely could prove to make the difference when it matters.

When you break it down, the Gunners have a lot going for them heading into the 2023/24 Premier League season, and they look like they’re doing everything right to put themselves in a great position to go on and win English football’s top division. But, as always, it won’t just be about Arsenal, it will be about other teams and what they do too.
