The Barclays Premier League kick off is merely days away, and excitement is brewing. The transfer window is still open and the first trophy has already been claimed by Arsenal, but it’s the BPL Title that matters. Arsenal are quite simply the best team in the BPL and as such, barring any major injuries, they’ll be the ones to take home the title. Here’s why.

When you win, you want to keep winning. Now that Arsenal have won two trophies within a few months of each other, they’re only hungrier for more. Not only that, but the German entourage of Ozil, Mertesacker and Podolski is coming back as World Cup Champions. Losing would feel worse than ever, and these athletes are too good to let that happen.

Arsene Wenger found himself in a crucial trophy drought prior to winning the FA Cup and now the FA Community Shield. But after trouncing Manchester City, it’s clear that Arsene wants more and he’s will to pull out all the stops to make sure he gets there.

Since moving from Highbury to the Emirates, Arsenal have had to pay off their new home by selling some crucial players. Well, that time is over, as proven by the new signings already. Wenger will now have the financial leniency to fill any holes in the team with a few well-placed bucks.

Arsenal improved the most of any of the top-5 squads in England. Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy, David Ospina, Calum Chambers and more to come now find themselves filling out a club that was already formidable enough to maintain first place longer than any other team last season.

Far be it from me to say that one man can swing the tide of an entire season in the favor of his team, but Aaron Ramsey may well be capable of that. He started last season on pace to lead the league in every statistical category, but injuries set him back. Upon returning, he continued right where he left off, including scoring the winning in the FA Cup. He’s a world class talent and only getting better.

The number one thing that prevented Arsenal from holding on for the title last year was injuries. Ramsey, Ozil, Wilshere, Walcott, Ox – no one was spared, especially the creative attacking force. Forsythe is the World Cup champion German’s fitness coach as well, and he’ll be able to solve this problem and keep Arsenal healthy for their title-winning season.
