I know, I know.

This season isn’t over yet. We could still finish fourth and lose the FA Cup final to Tactics Tim.

I may be getting carried away but I believe Arsenal can win the league next season.

It might sound like our good form in 2015 so far (Spurs and Monaco aside) has gone straight to my head but hear me out…

1. We’ll strengthen, again

Our squad improved last summer and it will again this year.

I can’t see us losing a major first team member, the biggest player we’ll potentially lose in the summer is Walcott but given Winger’s recent quotes that is now up in the air.

We’ll buy, and we’ll buy well.

A defensive midfielder will come in, more than likely from Southampton, a goalkeeper is likely if Woj goes but I get the feeling we’ll have our ‘marquee’ signing in the Ozil/Sanchez mould.

It’ll likely be a centre forward or attacking midfielder knowing Wenger, but if it’s the right player to complement Giroud rather than another centre forward to share the role with, it would be a welcome addition.

2. Our whole squad will have a proper pre-season under their belt

We started this season slowly, new signings were rushed in and some players who played in the World Cup took a while to find rhythm or returned late.

This summer will be the first time the likes of Ozil, Alexis, Welbeck, Ospina and Gabriel will have a full pre-season with their team mates.

This should enable us to hit the ground running come August.

3. Our injuries can’t be any worse

It’s not a coincidence that we’ve performed better the second part of the season as players settled and key players returned from injury.

This season we’ve had, Ozil, Ramsey, Giroud, Koscielny, Ospina, Wilshere, The Ox, Gnabry. Arteta, Diaby, Walcott and Debuchy miss large chunks through injury, which is ridiculous.

We can’t suffer the same sort of injury crisis next season, we’re surely due a good season on the injury front…aren’t we?

4. The competition won’t improve much

If we’re looking at the current top four then I can’t see either Man City or Man United improving a great deal.

Man City will probably ditch Pellegrini and their aging squad needs an overhaul.

Man United will also have a big overhaul as van Gaal looks to make the squad his own.

Too much change for both these clubs will see them struggle next season, along Man City being unable to juggle a league and Champions League campaign. I can see United struggle to do the same.

Will Mourinho strengthen that much this summer? He appears to have a squad he trusts and although he’ll look to add a couple of players to replace the aging (Drogba) and failing (Remy, Filipe Luis), it’s hard to see him going too big on a squad player.

So am I being too optimistic?

Keep the faith, the futures bright!
