GMS Academy member Buhendran Nico gives us five reasons why he believes Arsenal can win the Premier League title this season.

But do you agree? Get in touch and let us know your thoughts - leave a comment in the box provided below...

1. Mesut Ozil

The club record signing has already had a massive impact on his team since his arrival. Arsenal sent shockwaves around the Premier League after the capture of the German superstar from Real Madrid.

It took just ten minutes into his debut for this man to create his first assist for his new club. He has already created five assists in his first six games which has coincided with Arsenal being at the top of the table.

2. Aaron Ramsey

The Welshman has been outstanding this season for Arsenal. He has struck the net eight times already, more than he has in his previous seasons.

He looks to be a completely different player this season too - not only does his goal tally look impressive, his tackling and passing rate has been exceptional so far.

If he can carry on like this, Arsenal's chances of winning the title will be greatly boosted.

3. Mathieu Flamini

The returning Frenchman - who signed on a free transfer - could very well prove to be the bargain of the summer.

He's been brilliant ever since he came off the bench in the north London derby against Tottenham and has not looked back since.

He's started every game since then, shielding the back four by winning balls and allowing midfielders in front of him to bombard forward.

Flamini is just what have been missing ever since he left for AC Milan.

4. Plenty of options

Every title-winning side need plenty of options, and Arsenal certainly have them.

They may lack a proven alternative to Olivier Giroud but have been fully loaded with options in other departments, especially in their midfield.

There's just so many options in the middle of the park that they could afford to leave Jack Wilshere on the bench against Napoli.

This is a welcome headache for Arsene Wenger as it would allow him to rotate his midfield more often, keeping his player's fresh and on their toes as they mount a title charge.

5. Defence

This was said to be the main reason why Arsenal have been unable to mount a sustained title challenge over the past few seasons - but not anymore.

Ever since the promotion of former defender Steve Bould to the role of assistant manager and the dropping of club captain Thomas Vermaelen last season, Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscienly have formed a strong defensive partnership at the heart of the defence.

Together, with revitalised keeper Wojicech Szczesny, the experienced Bacary Sagna and left-back Kieran Gibbs, the defence has not been this strong for a long time.

Arsenal seem well placed to challenge for major honours - can Wenger & Co. finally end their eight-year trophy drought this season?
