Arsenal didnt grab Opportunity to Win Premier League

Arsenal have failed to capitalise on great opportunity to win the Premier League after a huge drought, according to midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The club has not been the league champions since the 2003-04 season. It was also the last and only time a club has gone through an entire league campaign without suffering a defeat. Arsene Wenger has been consistently criticised over the years for his failure to lead the club to title success and those criticisms have continued even into the 2015-16 season. Arsenal were in a very strong position going into the Christmas period.

However, their form nosedived at the start of 2016 and the club never really recovered from the setback. Leicester City have managed to win the title by a 10 point margin. Arsenal, though, will have to consult themselves with a second-place finish, which is one of the best records in recent seasons. As a result of Tottenham losing 5-1 to Newcastle United on the final day, Arsenal were able to leapfrog their arch rivals courtesy of their win against relegated Aston Villa. Ramsey may have failed to hit the goal scoring heights of a few years ago, but his importance to the team cannot be underestimated. As one of the leaders, the Welshman claims that the 2015-16 season offered a great chance for Arsenal to end the title drought.

"That's why is has been so frustrating this season [other big teams slipping up], it feels like a missed opportunity, but we are where we are, and we have to accept that.Full credit to Leicester for finishing the job off, but I'm sure we'll be back stronger for next season. It will be an interesting season next year and hopefully we can come out on top.We slipped up a few times in some crucial moments throughout the season, and that's what we've got to improve on for next year,” said Ramsey.
