5 things Arsenal should do to achieve a top 4 finish in EPL

Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs in the world and in England. The 13-time league winners in England have made a reputation for signing young players and marquee players and winning the league title with them.

The legacy created by Arsene Wenger at the club has been remarkable. From the Invincible team in 2003-04 to the FA Cup winners in 2017, the club has witnessed transfers that have changed the history of the club. However, the club has also seen some atrocious transfers and players who have not played up to their mark. Arsenal has to get back to winning ways and they need to do it fast.

In order to establish themselves as a top 4 team again, Arsenal needs to make the following changes in their new season, beginning on Saturday.

Attack-minded games

Arsenal needs to change their game plan and play more attacking games. Their strength lies in their attacking players, the likes of Aubameyang, Pepe, and Saka can tear up defenses. However, they need to build up games as they did in 2015–2018 era.

Sign a midfielder

Arsenal needs to find a replacement for Mesut Ozil as soon as possible. The departure of Ozil and Alexis Sanchez has created a void in the Arsenal attack. As a result of this duo missing, Arsenal does not have many creative minds left in their squad. They need to sign someone in the midfield, as Thomas Partey will be protecting the defense behind him. A strong playmaker will be able to help Arsenal score more goals.

More chances to the youngsters

Arsenal needs to have faith in their youngsters, as they are the future of the club. Along with Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe, Arsenal needs to call their other youngsters back. William Saliba, Gabrielle Willock, and other youngsters are in the fray for a strong contention in the senior team.

Sign a defender

Even though Arsenal just signed a defender in Ben White from Brighton, they need to keep their squad stacked up. Another defender in the squad will help the team give a sufficient amount of rest to its players. With a hectic and busy year ahead, players need to rest well and a defender will only make them stronger.

Leave past success behind themselves

Arsenal won two titles in 2020, the FA Cup and the Community Shield. However, the Gunners should not take any pride in winning those two trophies. Their main aim should be to come back to Europe and play the Champions League. This will be their fifth continuous season without Champions League football, hence that should serve as a motivation big enough to finish strong this season.
