Arsenal fans feel Premier League title most likely as only 4% back Champions League win

Steve Bould Directs Arsenal Warm Up

A poll on the official Arsenal website has gauged Gunners fans thoughts of success this season.

Arsenal have had an excellent start to the season, and a victory against Liverpool tomorrow will confirm their right as one of the big players in this year’s race for Premier League glory.

Despite the set-back against Aston Villa on the opening day, things have clicked since for The Gunners - especially since the arrival of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid.

So could this be the year that they finally do it, end their silverware drought?

That is the question the official website has been asking this week - which competition are Arsenal most likely to win this campaign?

They are of course asking the question after two defeats at home in two separate cup competitions - which has probably got the Arsenal fans feeling a little on edge.

Borussia Dortmund beat them in the Champions League last week, while Chelsea enforced the same fate to send them spiralling out the Capital One Cup this week - one down, three to go.

Which is why, we imagine, the official site felt compelled to ask this question.

But what do the Arsenal fans think?

Well at the time of writing this article (17:00 GMT, 01/11/2013) there is clearly one competition the Gunners faithful feel is the most likely - the Premier League.

67% of Arsenal fans believe the Premiership is their best chance at silverware this campaign - while 28% back them for FA Cup success.

Perhaps that says volumes about the faith fans have in their current crop to play knock-out football. Over 38 games this talented side can surely average out as the overall best - but what about one off games?

The fact that they have simply not backed the club at all to do anything in Europe is telling.

Only 4% of fans feel that there team can win the Champions League - that is if they even get past Napoli and Dortmund in the first-place.

It does seem to show a general lack of belief in the team’s ability to win important one off games, something they have done recently.

What do you think? Is the Premier League Arsenal’s best bet at silverware this season?
