Favorites and Why They Might Win This Year’s EPL
Because of how well Arsenal has been doing this season, it’s easily one of the favorites to win this season. Arsenal winning the league seems to be getting more buzz too since Mikel Arteta’s side during last week’s match with Tottenham secured the league double.
This is Arsenal’s biggest lead at the top since the 2003-04 season. So, it’s not surprising that fans are now more convinced that they do have the chance to win this year. The team should see this as the perfect opportunity to win.
If they continue to do well, they can end with 98 points based on their current stats. It seems like the team is unstoppable right now with the likes of Arteta, Gabriel Jesus, Martinelli, Saka, and Odegaard.
So far, they have already defeated Chelsea, Liverpool, and Tottenham, which they beat twice. What could go wrong? Well, Arteta needs to constantly change or tweak his tactics to help the midfield. That’s especially since the central midfield options are lacking and inconsistent.
Even if Arsenal is most favored to win at the moment, there are still other teams that can catch up and even get ahead of them. Their primary challenger seems to be Manchester United. The Red Devils are also having a great year as they are on their longest unbeaten run in all tournaments since 2016-17 when they won Manchester Derby.
