Former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has tipped us to win the Premier League next season after being impressed by how we dismantled Aston Villa at Wembley in the FA Cup final.
Why I think Arsenal can win the title next season… http://t.co/YuwoUypsro

Redknapp recently joined Twitter, and it’s looking like he’ll pursue a punditry career after being announced as part of BT Sport’s Champions League team for next season (via the Daily Mail).
The former Spurs boss highlighted the strength of our squad as the reason for his prediction, and insisted that providing Arsene Wenger can strengthen in the right areas, we could clinch our first league title since 2004.
Arsenal transfer rumours
“You look at the Arsenal team against Aston Villa in the FA Cup final there was a massive gulf in class, the teams were a million miles away,” Redknapp said.

“They’re full of quality and if Wenger makes two or three good signings in the summer they’ll be my team next year to go close. Next year may be their year, I think they will go close.”
The fact that we’ve been craving a league title for so long has felt as though our club has forgotten how to challenge over the course of nine months.
However, in Wenger we have a manager who absolutely knows what it takes and it’s time for the boss to build a winning side and stop waiting for one to emerge.
That means that if we have to purchase top-class striker instead of waiting on Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck to come good, then he must be brave enough to make those decisions.
One thing is for sure, there can be no excuses next season.
