If there’s one team that can be banked upon to win the Premier League this season, at least on the basis of the overall squad, it’s Arsenal. As they’ve shown, they aren’t all about Alexis Sanchez or Mesut Ozil, there’s more to them and the statistics prove why.but the defeat against Chelsea and 0-0 draw against Southampton has raised some questions.Cech is great, and Koscielny and Bellerin are some of the best in Europe. Bellerin has massive potential, quickly attacking, then sprinting back before the other team has a chance to counter. Definite player to watch in the future. Ozil has vision and is one of the best playmakers in Europe.Is this the season when Arsenal finally end their decade of hurt?

What a fairytale season it has been for Leicester!We have entered in February,and they are still at the summit of the League table with 3 points clear of 2nd placed Manchester City.They may be overly dependent on Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, but even when they haven’t been firing on all cylinders, they haven’t lost (only 2 defeats in 24 games), which is astounding. Goalkeeper Schmeichel has been almost unbeatable one-on-one, providing a huge confidence boost to his back four. Morgan and Huth have been difficult to round, and been aerially dominant. Wingbacks Fuchs, Simpson, and De Laet have contributed offensively while still doing their duties as part of the back four. In the midfield, Kante, Drinkwater, Albrighton and Mahrez are just beyond words. Albrighton has been consistent, while workhorses Drinkwater and Kante have been box-to-box workhorses.Currently 3 points clear at the top, they can win the league if they at least draw with Manchester City and Arsenal in the coming weeks.

One of the best teams in Europe,Manchester City have a good chance to win the league this year.But injuries to their star players has been a set back for them throughout the campaign.Injuries to Aguero,Kompany,Nasri,Kevin de Bruyne has been really frustrating for them.The attack, though, isn’t what’ll worry them, it’s the defence that will. With Kompany out of action until the latter part of the season, you wonder how they will realize their title dreams. Notwithstanding, Manuel Pellegrini’s side have as good a chance as any other team.To win the league, City need to reorganize and defend as a unit. If they can shut down Mahrez and Vardy in the upcoming encounter, they could grab the title.

Is this the season when Spurs can finally winb the Premier League?Pochettino’s side are inexperienced but not incapable of winning the Premier League trophy. Tottenham Hotspur have been a joy to watch. They’ve played fearlessly entertaining soccer all season long, yet they have managed to have the best defensive record, which, in itself reveals just how finely tuned this Spurs side is. This team is filled with future stars, including Mason, Kane, Erikson, Lamela, Dier, and Kane. Speaking of Alli, what a player! He assists, scores wondergoals, and all while still a teenager.
All this promises to set up a breathtaking last 3-4 months of the Premier League!
