What is the expectation for Arsenal this season?

For the second successive season, Arteta has been heavily financially backed, and has spent big once again.

They solved their striker woes by purchasing Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City for just shy of £50 million, and also went to City for creative fullback Olexsandr Zinchenko, filling the problem area at left back.

Fabio Vieira was also brought to the club, as Arsenal parted ways with just over £30 million for the creative midfielder.

The expectation for Arsenal will be qualifying for Champions League football.

What is the expectation for Crystal Palace this season?

Vieira did an underrated job last season, Palace had barely any senior players and he was brought in fairly late but bolstered the squad and kept them comfortably above the relegation zone.

He has also spent money this summer, improving his midfield and goalkeeping situation.

Now an established Premier League outfit, it is now time for Crystal Palace to break into the top ten and in the future, push on for the top six and more.
