Do Arsenal have the foundations of a title-winning side at last?

Arsenal Premier LeagueIt was a long eight year wait but, once they had finally brought the FA Cup back to the Emirates Stadium in 2014, Arsenal fans everywhere could dream again of getting back to successful ways.

Unfortunately for Gooners, Arsene Wenger’s side were unable to maintain the consistency needed over a full season to truly challenge for the Premier League title in 2015. However, they did manage to successfully defend their FA Cup and, in the process, became the most successful side to grace the world’s oldest football competition.

With only the £10m signing of goalkeeper Petr Cech to bolster the squad over the summer, is Arsenal’s best chance of silverware to come in the cup competitions again? Or will Arsene Wenger’s belief in his squad come to fruition in the Premier League this year?

Ex-Arsenal forward Charlie Nicholas thinks that it will.

“I may be the only one who thinks this but I believe that this current group is good enough to win the league,” he told Sky Sports. “They had an awful start against West Ham but all of a sudden they have got a pretty good run of games going.”

The goalkeeping position has been a difficult one for Wenger to fill adequately ever since the David Seaman left the club back in 2003. It is between the sticks that could prove to be the difference this season.

Petr Cech cut a disconsolate figure last year at Chelsea. Having done nothing wrong in his time at the club, it appeared that the pressure heaping on the Blues’ manager Jose Mourinho to play young Belgian stopper Thibaut Courtois – a star performer when on loan at Atletico Madrid – was too much.

Unable to face the thought of Courtois looking to leave the club, he became the club’s first choice goalkeeper. His performances soon justified the decision but it left an excellent keeper warming the bench and waiting on cup games to play. A move was inevitable.

Cech’s debut for Arsenal could not have gone worse. First punching at thin air and later being beaten at the near post, West Ham United capitalised on his errors and punished Arsenal with a two-goal victory at the Emirates. He since atoned for his mistakes – gameweeks three to five saw consecutive clean sheets.

The disappointment of no further summer signings at Arsenal may have tempered many fans’ hopes. However, each season, a packed Emirates Stadium dares to believe that this could be their year and Ticketbis gives you the chance to join them.

This current squad is a talented bunch and Cech’s calm demeanour is certain to breed confidence in all those lining up in front of him. Building on solid foundations, the sky is the limit. Can they make a true title challenge this season?

“I would’ve liked a holding midfielder but I think these guys can win the league,” Charlie Nicholas added when he spoke to Sky. “But it is up to them to prove their competitive edge and spirit.”
