This weekend has been a very good weekend for The Arsenal. We quite comfortably won the game against West Ham and Arsene Wenger was even able to rest a few players. But this is no time to rest on our laurels and it is important for the Gunners to try to look up and finish as high as possible in the table rather than worry about the chasing pack.
It looked like all our rivals were going to slip up. Unfortunately Man United won today., although it is always nice to see Tottenham lose. But that does mean that United are still biting at the heels for the race for the top four.
I still think that Arsenal are nailed on for a top four finish, however, we all have to worry about United now..
The worst thing that Arsenal players can do, is to start looking over their shoulders. What the players should be thinking is ‘how high can we actually finish in the table’. We should be hoping for Chelsea to have a proverbial wobble and if not, shouldn’t we be aspiring to the second spot this season?
Incentive is always better than fear, and Arsenal are now in the position, just one point behind second-placed Man City, when we really can look up rather than down.
