Wales international Aaron Ramsey insists the current Arsenal squad is good enough to challenge for the Premier League title next season.
The Gunners finished the season strongly, eventually sealing third spot and winning the FA Cup for the second campaign in a row.
Arsene Wenger’s side have a reputation for being flaky though and have failed in the past to maintain their top form for the full nine months of the season, instead enduring a poor run at some stage of the campaign.
Even with this group of players now I believe, if everyone was fit in the season, we would have a great opportunity of competing for the Premier League.
Ramsey thinks that is all about to change though and is confident Arsenal will push the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City hard in 2015/16.
The Gunners are 5.50 to win the Premier League title outright next season, while Chelsea can be backed at 2.50, Manchester City at 3.75 and Manchester United at 6.00.
“Even with this group of players now I believe, if everyone was fit in the season, we would have a great opportunity of competing for the Premier League,” Ramsey said.
“This team has come on a lot over the last few years and if we can get off to a good start next season we will challenge. The club is in a good place where they can afford not to let players go, we’re building on this team rather than seeing players leaving.
“It is a nice feeling and means that the group can stick together. The understanding is there already, so it can only get stronger.”
