Again this season Arsenal are in serious contention for success on three fronts and have a great chance of giving a massive challenge going forward in the FA Cup, Champions League, EFL Cup, and English Premier League. Wenger has absolute faith in his side’s ability to compete on multiple fronts, previously stating that his team has what it takes to win with a bit of luck if the Gunners are exceptional. Arsenal could claim a three trophy haul this season if the North London side keep up their present form and do not have any bad injuries.
Manchester United are the only English Premier League club to have completed the traditional treble of the European Cup, league title and FA Cup to date. Arsenal look to win their first Premier League title since the 2003-04 season. “I think the team has a good mentality, a good level of humility, and a good togetherness,” said Wenger.
