Simon Jordan predicts where he sees Arsenal finishing in the Premier League next term

Arsenal has lost the Premier League in back-to-back seasons to Manchester City, and manager Mikel Arteta will once again attempt to win their first title since 2004 next term.

The Gunners finished two points behind Pep Guardiola’s side this season and were five points behind in 2022-23.

However, former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan believes they can finally go one better next term.

Arsenal have already started working towards pipping Man City to the title, and Jordan is convinced they have learnt their lessons and will be ready to mount a stronger challenge next season.

“Yeah, I’ve sort of put my colours to the mast – I think Arsenal will win the Premier League,” he said on talkSPORT.

“I think there’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 are expected to sign a forward capable of performing consistently after Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah failed to impress. Signing another central midfielder is another priority.

They will need to sell before they can make quality additions to their squad. Aaron Ramsdale, Emile Smith Rowe, Reiss Nelson and the aforementioned duo could be sold.

The Gunners already have a solid squad but will need to further bolster their depth in all positions and hope their key players do not suffer any long-term injuries.

Being without Jurrien Timber for the whole of the campaign disrupted Arteta’s plans despite the quality options available in his position.

An injury to William Saliba towards the end of 2022-23 previously proved costly, and a repeat next term is the last thing Arsenal want.
