Arsenal Football Club is a professional football club based in Highbury, London, England, that plays in the Premier League, the top flight of English football. The club has won 13 League titles, a record 13 FA Cups, two League Cups, the League Centenary Trophy, 14 FA Community Shields, one UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and one Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.
In the 2016/17 season, Arsenal had a good start in the league but due to a slump in the later stages of the season, Arsenal missed the UEFA Champions League qualification for the 2017/18 season as they finished the season at the 5th place.It was not a good Champions League campaign for the gunners this year as they lost very badly to Bayern Munich in the Round of 16 as they lost 2-10 on aggregate. Arsenal fans are furious by the club’s performances and many of them wanted a replacement for Arsene Wenger.
However, the board has been loyal to the old manager and has extended his contract for another two years(till 2019).
Arsene Wenger is desperate to give Arsenal fans a good reply this season as he has got the second chance. He has been handed a good transfer budget and reportedly he is looking to strengthen his squad.
