Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain believes that the Gunners are title contenders this season.
The London club last put their hands on the league trophy in the 2003/04 season - thanks to the stunning campaign by their 'Invincibles'.
Things have changed since then, with Arsenal moving to a new stadium and putting a large focus on youth players.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger showed his intentions of kicking their pursuit of silverware into high gear this season though after splashing out a record sum for Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid.
Oxlade-Chamberlain feels that Arsenal have always been up there as contenders and believes that success is within their reach.
"We've been contenders ever since I came to Arsenal. Or at least that's the feeling in the squad. We really think we can take the title," he told the Daily Telegraph.
"Obviously it hasn't happened in recent seasons. But in the form we showed at the end of last season, and - when I was watching from the sidelines - in the spirit we've shown at the start of this, in the derby, everyone was fighting for each other.
"That team spirit, you can't buy it. That, along with our manager and the signings, I'm full of optimism that this season can be a good one.
"We think we can win the title. Just like we believe we can win every competition we're in. If you don't believe that, then you don't deserve to be at Arsenal."
Asked how he reacted to the purchase of Ozil, he added, "Jumped in the air. But you don't even have to be an Arsenal fan to jump in the air.
"When you find out that a world-class player like that is coming to England you're going to jump for joy even if you're a Tottenham fan. Well, maybe not a Tottenham fan, I won't push it too far.
"In the end we and the fans have got what we want: a really good addition."
