Arsenal have come out of a very bad run of form, but our draw with City and the convincing win against West Ham has put them right back in the race for the Top Four Trophy. Now we have another London derby coming up on Monday which certainly won’t be as easy as the Hammers game, considering that Palace did the unthinkable last week and beat Chelsea at the Bridge.
This week the Gunners became the first Premier League club to score 100 goals this season, and Wenger now thinks that we have got over our blip and must now push on. “I feel we came out of a very difficult period,” he said. “We have shown we are united, focused and determined to do things right again.
“That was questioned for a while I think we gave the right response. We have to show that focus until the end of the season, we have a lot to fight for, that is what is at stake.
“We are in a position that, at the moment, is not very comfortable because it is not where we want to be.
“[Having more points than at the same stage last season] is only one positive thing. We know exactly what we have to do – go into the next game and win it.
“Overall we had a hiccup in recent weeks and what is important is for us to move on, give absolutely everything in every game.”
It is certainly not going to be easy for Arsenal to make the top Four, considering our unfriendly fixture list, but if Wenger does manage to finish up there for the 21st season in a row, then it can only be considered another one of his great achievements with the quality of our opponents this season. There will still be many twists and turns to come I am sure….
