Freddie Ljungberg predicts where Arsenal will finish next season

Freddie Ljungberg is convinced that Arsenal have what it takes to win the title next term

Freddie Ljungberg is convinced that Arsenal have what it takes to win the Premier League title next season.

The north London club came in for heavy criticism last season after failing to sustain their Premier League title challenge, as Leicester City ended up being crowned as surprise champions in May.

Arsenal finished in second place and 10 points behind Claudio Ranieiri’s men as they ended the campaign without a trophy and in disappointing fashion.

The Gunners have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph back in 2003-04, when Ljungberg was still playing for the club.

However, despite their long wait for the title, the former midfielder feels that Arsenal have a strong foundation and will be capable of winning the title next season.

Speaking in an interview with Arsenal’s website, Ljungberg said: “We have a good squad and a good foundation.

“We need to have a good start to the season, keep playing as a team as we always do and believe in Arsene and each other.

“We are a big club and have a great team, so we always have a chance of winning the Premier League.

“It was a bit of a Cinderella story for Leicester to win it [last season], nobody thought they would last to the end and I don’t think it’s going to happen again.

“I’m good friends with some people there and I congratulated them, I think they did great – but let’s hope it’s our turn this season.”
