The next few weeks could turn out to be absolutely pivotal for Arsenal and out hopes of ending the 11 year wait and earning the right to lift the Premier League trophy at the end of this season. The Gunners have recovered from a shaky start and with none of our big Premier League rivals having made us pay, we are now in a great position.
Not only that, but our rivals are looking vulnerable to a concerted push and run of results from Arsenal. I see the biggest threat to Arsenal as Man City and so we must hope that their injury situation causes them to drop points in the coming weeks.
There are four EPL games before the next international break and City are going to be without their main men David Silva and Sergio Aguero as well as a few others. If they come away with maximum points from Bournemouth, Man United, Norwich City and Aston Villa, fair play to them but Arsenal must be ready to punish them if they don´t.
Liverpool and Chelsea will surely get better under Klopp and Mourinho but it might take a bit of time, so we need to make the gaps between us as big as possible before they start to flow. And Man United have a tough schedule ahead, with Everton away before Man City, Crystal Palace and West Brom.
So if Arsenal have realistic title hopes then I think it is vital for us to be leading the way when the next international break begins in November. If not, will we have blown our chance?
