Arsene Wenger himself suggested in the Arsenal press conference yesterday that it was Leicester City that was the main obstable bween his Arsenal side and the Premier League trophy this season, although the manager did suggest that we could do it with eight wins from the remaining eight EPL games.
He is a bit biased mind you and it will be a minor miracle if the Gunners can win eight in a row even though the remaining fixtures are not the toughest of run ins for us. Perhaps a more balanced view is required to get a more realistic look at the likely finish to the season and former Arsenal and Celtic striker and current football pundit Charlie Nicholas has attempted to do just that.
He gave his prediction to Sky Sports of how he sees the remaining fixtures going for Arsenal and our two main title rivals Tottenham and Leicester. Charlie does not think we will win all of our games but he has backed us to perform well and win six of them. But he feels that Man City and Sunderland will hold us to draws, leaving Arsenal on 75 points at the end.
And going on how he thinks the spuds will do, that would be enough for the Gunners to finish above our north London rivals, but not above the current league leaders Leicester. He does think they will drop points though and finish on the same 79 points that Arsenal would have with eight more wins.
How do you guys see the rest of the season going for the top three?
