The 2013/14 Premier League campaign promises to be one of the closest in recent years, with as many as five clubs eyeing the title.

Arsenal will be in a strong position to carry on from their end-of-season form and take the title - and here we look at why the Gunners will be able to end their eight-year trophy drought with the bang.

Transfer kitty

Arsenal have been criticised for being frugal in the transfer market but it is the first in many years that they will have money to spend.

Arsene Wenger reportedly has millions to spend this summer, and the use of that money will be crucial to Arsenal.


The Premier League has seen an unprecedented changes at the top of the table, where all the top three teams will see new managers take over the clubs.

Arsenal are the only team in the top four with the same manager and Wenger has now become the longest-serving manager in the league. This will give Arsenal a huge advantage in the title race. 

No need to sell

Arsenal, for the first time in many years, will not be forced to sell their best players - they have tied all their core player to long-term contracts.

For the past few years Arsenal were forced to sell players. In that period they sold Mathieu Flamini, Alexander Hleb, Emmanuel Adebayor, Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy, Cesc Febragas, Alex Song and Robin van Persie have after they had good seasons with the Gunners.

This is the first time in many years when Wenger will not face that problem and which will hold them in good stead in the coming season.

The above stated reasons for me will make this a bumper season for Arsenal. What do you think?
