Podolski

Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski believes that his side can be serious Premier League title contenders when the new season gets underway.

The 28-year-old Germany international scored 11 goals in 33 top-flight appearances in his first season with the Gunners, helping Arsenal to finish fourth in the table.

And Podolski is hoping to do even better next season, telling The Sun: "The hope is that this season Arsenal will be at the top of the league.

"English football, thankfully, is not like Spain where you only have two teams - Barcelona and Real Madrid - who fight at the top.

"In the Premier League, you have five, six, even seven top, top teams. It's very difficult, but I know that Arsenal are one of those top teams who will be involved

"You don't know how the season will work out. A few of the other teams all have new managers, so it's difficult to say.

"But they will be strong and equally Arsenal will be strong."

Arsenal are 11.00 to be crowned Premier League champions in 2013/14, with Manchester United 3.25 and Manchester City 3.25.

The Gunners last won the league title in 2003/04, when Arsene Wenger's men went through the whole season undefeated.
