Arsenal Are More Likely To Get Relegated Than Win The Premier League

Arsenal are more likely to get relegated than win the Premier League next season, according to the bookies.

Last season wasn't a good one for Arsenal as Mikel Arteta's team could only finish eighth in the league and at one point looked like they might not finish in the top half.

It all started so well, with a surprise Community Shield win over Liverpool, but even the cup competitions didn't provide solace, as they lost in the fourth round of the FA and the quarter final of the Carabao Cup.

Arteta and his players are probably glad to see the end of the club season but unless there's some big changes at the Emirates Stadium this summer things could continue to get worse.

So much so that the bookies have the Gunners at 50/1 to finish in the bottom three in the league next season and 66/1 to win the league, with odds as high as 80/1 availble with some odds makers.

The odds do still mean that the Gunners are more likely to win the league than most of the 20 teams but also suggest the north London side are the first to drop out of the famed 'big six.'

Arsenal are seventh most likely to win the league, with Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, Leicester City and rivals Tottenham Hotspur all given a better chance.

Everton are next behind the three time Premier League winners at 100/1.

The odds also seem to suggest that Arsenal have a better chance to staying up than Leicester, with the Foxes priced at 40/1 to go down.

There may be one small bit of light that fans of the club can grasp onto for the season. According to the stats, Arsenal would have actually finished fourth if it wasn't for VAR.

Of course, like it or not, the controversial system is in theory disallowing goals that shouldn't be and allowing ones that should so it isn't really much to grasp but when it's all you've got, it's all you've got!

Arteta's future at the club was called into question when they were knocked out of the Europa League semi finals by Villarrreal, and former manager Unai Emery, but that might look better with the Spanish side beating United in the final.

The Gunners aren't in Europe next season however, and Willian's comments he would win the Champions League with the club have seriously backfired, especially given his old club did exactly that!
