Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes that managerial changes at the top of the Premier League could open up the title race.
Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all changed management over the summer with Jose Mourinho, David Moyes and Manuel Pellegrini taking over the respective clubs.
Wenger, who has failed to win a Premier League title with the Gunners since the 2003-04 season, hopes that change may hand his club the chance to end the drought.
The Frenchman is looking to take full advantage by opting to spend some cash this summer and strengthen the side to compete with the three teams which finished ahead of the north London club last term.
Wenger said: "Our opponents have changed managers. Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United, this is the first time. Is it more open than before? We don't know, nobody knows.
"It feels like it should be [more open], but it is not who sits on the bench who will be the most important - it is the players on the pitch. That, at Chelsea and United hasn't changed a lot, at City it has changed a bit more. But there could be more changes coming in."
