Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal missed out on a place in the top four in agonising fashion last season. However, there were plenty of positives to take from their 2021-22 Premier League campaign, and finishing in the UEFA Champions League positions will be the London club’s ultimate ambition this term.

In our in-depth 2022-23 Arsenal Premier League betting preview, we take a look at their top-four hopes, which players will stand out this season, and who will arrive at the Emirates Stadium in the summer.

2021-22 Review: Gunners miss out on final day

Arsenal made the worst possible start to their 2021-22 season when they lost at newly promoted Brentford in the opening game. Arteta’s boys were then beaten at home to London rivals Chelsea before being hammered 5-0 by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

To their credit, the Gunners responded superbly well from those three straight defeats, going on to win six and draw two of their following eight. Inconsistency was proving to be their Achilles heel, though, as three of the next four ended in defeat.

Our betting prediction:
Erling Haaland top goalscorer

(odds taken 1710 GMT, Tuesday 14 June)

Arsenal flirted with the top four for the next few months and put themselves in a superb position to take one of the Champions League spots when they picked up 14 wins from 20 games. After a 2-1 home success over Leeds United, which was a fourth straight win, the Londoners were four points clear of fifth with three games to play.

Arsenal then had a disastrous week, starting with a bad 3-0 loss at rivals Tottenham. Another damaging defeat at Newcastle United a few days later saw them slip two points behind Spurs going into the final weekend. Despite a 5-1 home win over Everton, Tottenham took fourth with a 5-0 triumph at Norwich City.

The north London side finished in fifth with 69 points to their name. Overall, they won 22, drew three and lost 13 of 38. The top four was the priority, but after a year away, Arteta’s troops will have to settle for a spot in the UEFA Europa League this season.

Our betting prediction:
Man City to win the Premier League

Arsenal Key Facts

  • Arsenal missed out on the Champions League by two points last season
  • The Gunners have been English champions 13 times
  • Arsenal have not won the Premier League since the 2003-2004 season
  • The Londoners ended last term with a thumping 5-1 success over Everton


Arsenal Transfer News: Who will start the new season up front?

With Alexandre Lacazette following Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang out the exit door at the Emirates, Arsenal’s attack this season will be far different from the one that started the 2021-22 campaign. Eddie Nketiah, who impressed at the end of last season, has also been linked with a move away from the London club. The Arsenal boss could have as much as £100m to spend on new recruits as he looks to rebuild the forward line.

In the other direction, Arsenal have been kinked with several players. Marco Asensio and Raphinha are being mentioned, while the Gunners are one of many clubs reportedly keeping tabs on Belgium ace Youri Tielemans, who could leave Leicester City this summer. According to one source, Arteta is willing to offer Gabriel Jesus £200-a-week to leave Man City and sign on the dotted line at the Emirates.

Who Are the Gunners’ Biggest Challengers: Can they finish above Spurs?

After years away from the Champions League, getting back into the top four will be Arsenal’s priority this season. The Gunners missed out on the top four in agonising fashion last season, with rivals Tottenham pipping them to the post on the last day.

Arsenal are definitely building something good under Arteta, but winning the Premier League title seems a long shot right now. The Gunners will be desperate to bring Champions League football back to the Emirates Stadium this time around, but who are their biggest challengers in that respect?

Manchester City Preview: Can the Citizens make it three on the spin?

Pep Guardiola’s Man City had an incredible 2021-22 Premier League season. They won 29 of their 38 league matches, drawing six and losing three of the other nine. The Manchester giants finished on 93 points to pip Liverpool to the trophy once again.

With the capture of the exciting Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, Guardiola’s boys will be even stronger this season, which is an ominous sign for their title rivals. Man City will certainly be the team to beat in this term’s Premier League.

Liverpool Preview: Can the Reds rub shoulders with City once again?

Liverpool did remarkably well to keep up with Man City’s relentless pace last term. The Reds and City have been getting the best out of each other for years, and the Merseysiders will no doubt be Man City’s main title rivals for the foreseeable future.

Jurgen Klopp’s troops had an outstanding 2021-22 season. They beat Chelsea in both the Carabao Cup and FA Cup finals, and finished runners-up in the Premier League and Champions League. Liverpool will back stronger than ever this season and, at the time of writing, Klopp’s side are priced at 2/1 to win their second Premier League title.

Tottenham Hotspur Preview: Conte to build on last season?

In Antonio Conte, Tottenham have one of the best managers in world football. The Italian guided Spurs to a top-four finish against all odds last term, with the north Londoners edging out Arsenal in the race to the final Champions League place. Conte described the achievement as one of the best of his career.

We never really know what to expect from this current crop of Tottenham players. However, with Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son up top, the Lilywhites have one of the best strike forces in the Premier League, which could get even stronger this summer. Conte is more than capable of attracting the world’s best players to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and the Lilywhites could challenge this season.

Manchester United Preview: Can Ten Hag hit the ground running?

Since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure, Man United have been going through a transitional period. However, it is taking the record English champions far too long to bring back the glory days. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked midway through the 2021-22 campaign, with interim boss Ralf Rangnick doing a decent job until the end.

United have been well off the pace in recent years, as they have stood back and watched rivals Man City and Liverpool dominate England’s top division. It is likely to take Ten Hag time to settle into his new surroundings, but the Red Devils could be a team to watch out if the Dutchman hits the ground running. They are long shots at 25/1.

Newcastle United Preview: Can the big-spending Magpies gatecrash the top-four party?

Backed by very generous owners, Newcastle have an open chequebook this summer. They made some huge signings in January, and the Magpies won 12 of their last 18 Premier League matches to finish in 11th spot. It was a remarkable turnaround for Newcastle, who spent the first half of the season in the bottom three.

At the time of writing, Newcastle are the seventh favourites behind the top six to win the title. It may be too early to think about that, but the Magpies may just break into Europe this term, while the cup competitions could also take priority.

West Ham United Preview: Europe again for the Hammers?

Under the experienced David Moyes, West Ham have been the surprise package in the Premier League over the past couple of seasons. The Hammers finished sixth in the 2020-21 campaign to book their spot in the UEFA Europa League.

West Ham reached the semi-finals of Europe’s second elite club competition and managed to secure seventh position in the Premier League. Can the Londoners break into Europe once again this season?

Players to Watch Out For in the 2022-23 Season: Silky Norwegian to be the main man?

Martin Odegaard had an exceptional season at the Emirates after his £30m transfer last summer. The Norway international chipped in with seven Premier League goals and produced several Man of the Match performances. After 18 or so months in the English capital, Arsenal’s No. 8 could flourish this season.

Bukayo Saka retained his Player of the Year award at the Emirates last term. The England international was the Gunners’ top scorer with 12 goals in total. At just 20, Saka has the world at his feet and will only get better and better with age. The attacker will certainly be a player to watch out for this term.

Our Arsenal Predictions: Arteta’s men to miss out again

Realistically, Arsenal are unlikely to be in the race for the title this season. Liverpool and Man City could dominate for years to come, while Chelsea will strengthen this summer and could be in the mix.

The Gunners will be desperate to bring Champions League football back to the red half of north London. After a year out of Europe, the Londoners could be best suited for a season in the Europa League before thinking about challenging Europe’s elite in the Champions League.

With so many top teams pushing for a top-four spot, it will no doubt be tough. Unfortunately, we can see them missing out, but Arteta’s boys should qualify for the Europa League once again. We are predicting Arsenal to finish in fifth place this term.
