Arsenal’s success capturing hearts and minds in America and beyond

No Arsenal fan needs reminding of how long it has been since the Gunners last won the Premier League, with the Invincibles still enjoying their place in history as one of the best ever sides to grace the game.

However, Arsenal are in the relative doldrums as a side, having not won the title since 2003/04 and having only won a handful of cups to cling onto since.

A relative lack of success on the pitch however has not translated into the terraces, with Arsenal remaining one of the most popular sides in English football and their international appeal remains as pertinent today, as it was in the days of Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira in the mid 2000’s.

The 2022/23 Premier League season however has bucked the recent trend at the Emirates Stadium, with Arsenal very much in the hunt for the Premier League title – with over a third of the season completed.

Prior to the World Cup break, Arsenal opened up a 5-point gap on the chasing pack in the Premier League and their success is capturing the hearts and minds of fans all over the world.

Spaniard Mikel Arteta is the man at the helm currently in North London and the impact he has had so far at the club has been seismic, something he will be keen to develop as the season progresses.

Being top of the table is often the hardest place to be, as the chasing pack line up to try and shoot the top side down but Arsenal have been reveling in their new found role this season and they look well-equipped to go the distance.

At +375 with BetRivers New York bookmaker, Arsenal are better placed than they have been in years to challenge for the Premier League and if they were to get over the line, it would be a very popular victory worldwide.

The number one challenge for Arsenal when it comes to winning the Premier League is undoubtedly Manchester City, Pep Guardiola’s winning machine who have clinched 4 of the last 5 Premier League titles on offer.

It has been a patchy campaign so far for the blues but Erling Haaland gives them a whole new dimension and the Norwegian loves banging in the goals.

At -155, Manchester City are the righteous favorites for the Premier League title but they will have to work hard to catch up with the high-flying Gunners.

Elsewhere, 2020 Premier League champions Liverpool came so close once again last season but ultimately, it was Manchester City who managed to get over the line when it mattered.

Liverpool would certainly be relying on plenty of slip ups from other sides to get themselves back into the title race but at +1800, discarding them cannot happen just yet.
