EPL Title Contenders, Relegation Battlers, Key Players and Ladder Prediction

Arsenal

Lacazette! Lacazette! Lacazette! The word that inspires Arsenal fans to believe for another season, but unfortunately the Gunners will need three Lacazette’s to push for the title. Although the Frenchman brings a quantity of goals with him (37 in 45 games for Lyon in 2016/17) and fits nicely into the Wenger system of pace and creativity down the wings and through the middle, the team as a whole still only has a big 3 of Sánchez, Özil and now Lacazette. For a team that scores goals, but concedes its fair share the addition of another striker won’t assist in a title run.

Key Player: Mesut Özil

Top Goal scorer: Alexis Sánchez

Predicted Finish: 4th
