Patrick Vieira Makes Bold Premier League Title Claim Involving Arsenal. Mikel Arteta’s side defeated the Eagles 2-0, thanks to a first-half goal by Gabriel Martinelli and a second-half own goal by Palace captain Marc Guehi. Partick Vieira was impressed by the performances of Arsenal’s new signings. Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko joined the club from Manchester City this summer.
The majority of Arsenal’s attacks revolved around Jesus. His strength, ability to link up with teammates, and work rate made him a constant threat to the Eagles’ defence. Zinchenko on the other hand gave confident effectiveness at left-back.
Another high-profile summer addition for the north London team is Fabio Vieira. He was injured and missed the game versus Palace, but this season, Arsenal anticipates him to be a crucial player.
According to Patrick Vieira, the new players at the Emirates Stadium and the increased squad depth make them a serious contender for the Premier League championship this year.
“They are in a better place than last year. The new players have made them much stronger. They have the squad to challenge and be closer to the title.”
🗣 “I think they are in a better place than they were last year.”

Arsenal finished fifth in the Premier League table last season despite being one of the early favourites to finish in the top four. Their lack of efficiency and strength in depth for their squad was blamed for their demise.
Both issues were dealt with by the Gunners during the summer transfer window. They are one of the favourites to finish in the top four this season, even though it might take them some time to mature and become title challengers.
