What will Wenger achieve at Arsenal this season after celebrating twenty years in charge?
Arsene Wenger has celebrated 20 years at the helm of Arsenal in what could be his last season managing the club. The Frenchman joined the Gunners in 1996 and has since gone on to win the Premier League, three times, and both the the FA Cup and Community Shield on six occasions.
As well as guiding Arsenal to silverware, and turning them into the ‘untouchables’ in the 2003/04 season, Wenger also won the LMA manager of the year in the 2001/02 and 2003/04 seasons.
It is unlikely his next destination will be in the dugout at the Nou Camp and if he were to win manager of the year Arsenal will surely need to win either the Premier League, at 14/1, or the Champions League, at 28/1.
The closest Wenger has come to winning the Champions League with Arsenal was losing in the 2006 final to Barcelona. This season the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid look far too strong for Arsenal.
You can never rule Arsenal out of winning the FA Cup, priced at 10/1 with Sportingbet. But Wenger’s most realistic chance of winning silverware this season looks to be in the EFL Cup where Arsenal have emerged as 5/1 favourites.
The fourth round draw has presented Arsenal with Championship side Reading while Manchester City play Manchester United and Liverpool take on Tottenham, as well as another all Premier League tie between West Ham and Chelsea.
