Even with today’s win against Hull, Arsenal are officially out of the race for the Premier League title. Given the period of time they led the way earlier in the season, the disappointment among Gunners fans is understandable, with this term having looked so promising. However, there are some reasons for optimism at the Emirates Stadium, with next season presenting another shot at the big one. Here are three reasons we think Arsenal will be in the title hunt next season:
The German playmaker was hailed as the man to change things at Arsenal this season, but he has failed to justify the £40m+ it took to get him to the club from Real Madrid. However today on his return to the starting XI he was impressive, and showed signs that he is adapting to the Premier League.
We play a lot better attacking football when Ozil is on the pitch

Ozil next season will become a demon

Ozil has been Arsenals unsung hero this season. Whenever he’s on the pitch, the entire complexity of the team changes.

The Welshman has had a turbulent career, but this season he has truly blossomed. Another goal against Hull will do wonders for his confidence, which could set him up well for next season.
Man oh man, imagine if Ramsey didn’t get injured this season.

What a difference a Ramsey makes

Going by today’s result Arsenal should have no problem beating Hull in the upcoming FA Cup final. Ending nine years without silverware could lift the weight off of the Gunners players’ and bring a feeling of belief.
I bet Hull are looking forward to the FA Cup final as much as someone would look forward to there Tax Return!
