For the first time in decades, Arsenal mounted an incredible Premier League title challenge, staying at the top for 72% of the season – the most a team has maintained the top spot in the history of the Premier League and ended up not winning the title.

However, the Gunners chickened out of the title race when it mattered the most in the most dramatic fashion.

Three consecutive draws against Liverpool, West Ham, and Southampton, including a heavy 4-1 defeat to Manchester City dealt a final blow to Arsenal Premier League title hopes.

Can the Gunners challenge for the Premier League title again next season? Who is more likely to challenge City’s dominance next season?

Manchester United

Manchester United last won the Premier League in 2012/2013 season, thanks to Robin Van Persie’s hat-trick in a 3-0 win over Aston Villa.

After the mini-revival under new manager, Erik Ten Hag, Manchester United are gearing up to challenge for the Premier League title next season.

At a point in the current campaign, Manchester United make a bold attempt on the title race but were subsequently ruled out after dropping points in a number of games.

Erik Ten Hag’s blueprint in his first season at Old Trafford is the envy of any football manager.

The former Ajax boss is on the verge of returning Manchester United to European elite club competition – the Champions League. They have defeated Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City in this campaign, including winning the EFL trophy and reaching the FA Cup final.

The Red Devils are planning more reinforcement in the Manchester United attack next season.

They have been linked to Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen. After closing in on Champions League football, Erik Ten Hag is obviously ready to challenge for the title next season.

Arsenal

Arsenal are still among the few clubs that may challenge Manchester City for the title race next season.

Despite losing the battle at the tail end of the campaign to Manchester City, Arsenal’s 2022/23 season can not be written off as a failure. They are back to Champions League football after seven years and have showed grit since the start of the season.

Mikel Arteta is eyeing a summer move for Declan Rice and other key targets with a summer overhaul expected. The Gunners will be ready to mount a more formidable challenge for the title again next season.

Liverpool

Liverpool have been a shadow of themselves this season. They are nearly out of the top four race and may likely settle for Europa League football next season.

Liverpool’s struggle this season has been linked to an ageing squad, especially in the midfield.The Reds are planning a summer overhaul to boost and reignite the spark in the squad ahead of next season.

Liverpool wrestled with Manchester City for the title race till the last matchday last season. Jurgen Klopp will head back to the drawing board and hopefully challenge for the title next season.

Newcastle United, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur

Newcastle United have broken the bounds to close in on Champions League football for the first time in decades. However, it is unclear whether Eddie Howe could go a step further to challenge for the title next season.

Chelsea are Premier League weeping boys this season. Emerging from this season’s wrecked ship to challenge for the Premier League title could be a miracle despite lining up Mauricio Pochettino in the dugout next season. The Blues will be eyeing a return to the top four next season.

Tottenham’s trophyless spell in the Premier League has continued this season. They have declined further, dropping down the pecking order this season.

The London club are out of the Champions League and are on the brink of missing out of Europa League and Conference League football. It is unlikely they will challenge for the title next season.
