Arsenal Set to Become Top Four Regulars Once More?

Go back a couple of decades and not only were Arsenal being regular top four finishers, but they were challenging for, and winning, league titles. That is a little way off just yet, with the big gap between Manchester City, Liverpool and the rest, but hopes of becoming top four regulars in the near future are strong, with the team heading in the right direction finally.

This could happen as early as this season. The Premier League is a strong league for wagering, with many online betting offers UK customers can use to place bets on the league, including markets such as who will finish in the top four. Arsenal are priced up around 11/8 to get into the top four this season, showing just how close they are.

Whether they do it this season or not, for those looking at the bigger picture, it is clear to see that Arsenal are heading in the right direction. With a group of young players, a number of promising British talents and a manager who finally appears to have a handle on what it takes to win in the Premier League, it is fair to say that of the teams currently outside of the top two, Arsenal could well be in the best long-term position moving forward.

Arsenal Youth Movement Taking Shape

The Gunners deserve a ton of credit for the way in which they have put their squad together. With almost every signing they have made, the management team have been looking at the bigger picture, rather than looking for short term games. The ride has been bumpy in parts, including at the start of this season, when they were struggling to win games, but since then, things have really developed and pushed forward.

The current Premier League standings show Arsenal are outside of the top four right now but have games in hand to help them close the gap and jump up. On top of that, they are full of confidence, you can see the team is buying into what they have and where they are going.

Everywhere you look, Arsenal have quality youth, starting with Aaron Ramsdale in goal, who is 23, which means he isn’t really in his prime as a goalkeeper yet. Ahead of him, Ben White in central defence and full back Kieran Tierney are both 24 and have the best part of a decade ahead of them in the Premier League.

Then the big guns moving forward come into play. Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli are both 20, Emile Smith Rowe is 21 and Martin Odegaard is 23, these four are crucial to everything that happens at the club from an attacking point of view, and again, all four are going to play Premier League football for the next decade.

The pieces are there, Arsenal have turned themselves into a club on the cusp of being top four regulars, they just have one final step, and perhaps one final signing left before it happens.
