For quite some time Arsenal has been the only major club in all prestigious football leagues in Europe to make profits year on year but you would be right to counter that this impressive financial record has not been replicated in winning silverware. Two FA Cup triumphs in the past decade does not reflect well on a club of Arsenal’s standing and it is perhaps only repeated finishes in the top four – making them one of the most consistent UEFA representative sides from England – that has kept the word ‘crisis’ from the Emirates door.
All of that though might be about to change and with the 2015/16 season now a third concluded the whispers are growing louder with every passing week – Arsenal are looking like champions in waiting.
Just like the season before, Arsenal began this campaign on a low note and fans and non-fans duly called for the retrenchment of Arsene Wenger. It has almost become a tradition in north London that at some stage the Frenchman’s credentials will be questioned. Are his best days behind him? Has he simply become too stubborn and set in his ways in the ever-evolving Premier League? Gradually though the Gunners picked up speed and now sit only two points off the top, behind the two Manchester behemoths and a Leicester side that continue to astound.
Two disappointing results on the road in recent weeks may have halted momentum but with no team taking the league by the scruff of the neck this term it’s still all to play for and Wenger’s men must very much fancy their chances. In fact it could be argued they have the best chance for quite a while to end their title draught.
Why Arsenal has the best chance to win the EPL in 2015
Patience is key: Their recent game against Swansea epitomises the spirit and character that seems to be now instilled into the present squad. There was a composure clearly evident, a patience that will serve them well with a plethora of games up ahead where Sanchez, Ozil and co will be expected to break down inferior but well-organised opponents.
It’s up for grabs: Never before can we recall such a wide-open season where no side dominates going into the Christmas period. The Gunners are beset by injuries yet remain firmly in contention and with Leicester expected to fade and Manchester United underwhelming with a series of sterile performances there is arguably only Manchester City to beat.

Consistency in winning: More so than anyone (though City may beg to differ) the Gunners are capable of stringing together a lengthy run of wins building up confidence and points as they go.
Capable of anything: Beating Guardiola’s Bayern Munich back in October illustrated what this side can achieve when the stars align. The fixture list reveals that a testing January awaits them but with their injuries lightening by then a run of form going into next year certainly looks possible.
