Always up there among the very best of what England has to offer, Arsenal can be considered one of the most consistent performers in the Premier League. Truth be told, the Gunners have experienced their ups and downs recently, but the odds of 1.80 for Arsenal to finish within the top four speak volumes.
In addition to the Premier League, Arsenal will be pushing strong in Europa League as well. With the most successful manager in the history of this competition – Unai Emery – the Gunners are definitely among the biggest favourites to emerge victorious in the 2019/20 campaign. With 6.00 betting odds next to their name, Arsenal are as far as Europa League campaign is concerned, just above Manchester United.
Arsenal Key Players
In order to achieve international success – and re-establish them as a domestic force for the first time since the Invincibles era – Arsenal will rely on a number of players in 2019/20. The Gunners did a great job to reinforce their squad by a couple of exciting names during the summer transfer window.
Former Lille star winger Nicolas Pepe arrived on the back of a record €80 million transfer and will be expected to add plenty of flair and tempo to Arsenal’s game. He’s given whopping 200 betting odds to finish as the Premier League top scorer as well. However, two of his teammates – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette – have much better chance of doing so with 10.00 and 34.00 betting odds, respectively. Ultimately, the two forwards are also the two players you should be watching at Arsenal.
The London-based club will naturally have plenty of rivalries with other clubs from the nation’s capital. With the emergence of Chelsea as the Premier League superpower – from the financial point of view – two strongest clubs from London weighed some memorable battles.
Historically speaking, two managerial legends of the Premier League – Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson – forged a memorable rivalry during the late 1990s and early 2000’s. However, the undeniable biggest rivals of Arsenal are Tottenham Hotspur.
Geographical proximity might be a notable factor behind the rivalry at its base level. Nevertheless, the North London Derby – as matches between Arsenal and Tottenham are called – emerged to prominence back in 1919 when there was a vote on who should earn the promotion to the 1st Division. Slightly suspiciously, Arsenal got the vote while Tottenham got relegated. From that point onward, the two clubs would head into each and every season trying to outdo one another. In fact, the day Tottenham can no longer catch Arsenal in the league table is officially celebrated by Gunners as St Totteringham’s Day. Ultimately, this should give you a clear idea of how big and intense this particular rivalry is.
The North London rivalry grew even bigger with several players switching sides – Sol Campbell or Emmanuel Adebayor – during the modern times. As a result, matches between these clubs are incredibly intense by default, bringing plenty of on-pitch and off-pitch drama.
The Gunners stand tall as one of the longest-acting top-division members. Arsenal only got relegated once in their history – in 1913 – not even once, however, under the name of Arsenal. That being said, it’s worth mentioning that first emerged in October 1886, as Dial Square. Named after the heart of the Royal Arsenal complex, it was only a month later that the club was renamed into Royal Arsenal F.C.
In 1892, the club was once again renamed, into Woolwich Arsenal. Soon after sustaining relegation, the club moved to their historic Highbury stadium. As a result, the club changed their name for the third – and final time – into simply Arsenal. Having changed their name on three occasions, Arsenal also had several versions of the club crest. The modern badge and home colours have, however, featured similar details – normally incorporating a cannon and overwhelming nuances of red.
Today, Arsenal play their home games in Holloway, where their modern 60,000 seater called Emirates Stadium is situated. It is the fourth-largest stadium in England, well deserving for a club of such grand stature and reputation.
