‘Natural progression’ – Arteta backed to guide Arsenal to PL title next season

    Simon Jordan believes Arsenal will finally win the Premier League title next season ahead of Manchester City.

    The Gunners have battled against Pep Guardiola’s dominant side over the past two seasons and recently took the title race to the final day.

    Arsenal have failed to finish top on both occasions though, with City the champions for a record fourth consecutive year.

    However, Mikel Arteta’s continued improvement of the north London side has led Jordan to believe they could go all the way next campaign.

    Speaking on the White & Jordan show, the ex-Crystal Palace owner was asked if Arteta will overcome the challenge of winning the title, to which he said: “Yes.

    “Yeah, I’ve sort of put my colours to the mast, I think Arsenal will win the Premier League, I think there’s a natural progression.”

    He later added: “I do because I think it’s a natural progression. I think ultimately you’ve gone from 84 points to 89 points.

    “You look at the weaknesses and you go, ‘We’ve got a Champions League campaign which we were moderately successful in so we’ve proven that we’ve got a squad that’s capable of competing on two fronts.’

    “A couple of improvements, the manager’s involvement, a couple of tactical decisions they got wrong in games against Aston Villa and over the Christmas period, and they’re in business.”

    Arsenal did find themselves top of the Premier League on occasions throughout the season amid pressure from City and Liverpool.

    They also won 16 of their 18 league league matches from the start of 2024, but it still wasn’t enough for them to be crowned champions.

    City hosted Arsenal at the end of March in crucial title clash although neither side could find a breakthrough as it ended 0-0.

    The Gunners went on to lose 2-0 at home to Aston Villa whereas Guardiola’s side didn’t drop a single point following their goalless meeting.

    And that defeat at the Emirates Stadium may have seemingly been the deciding factor in the title race.

    Arsenal will return next season as one of the heavy favourites to win the Premier League once again, and Jordan believes that 2025 could be their year.

    It would end a 21-year wait for glory in the English top-flight, with Arsene Wenger’s ‘Invincibles’ side the last to win it for the Gunners in 2004.
