Thankfully for Arsenal fans, we have seen our team win all of the last four games, which have come in three different competitions. So while our sting among the top four was short lived after Eden Hazard scored the only goal of the game against Bournemouth to put Chelsea back above us, Arsenal are in the quarter-finals of the Carabao cup and in pole position to finish on top of our Europa League group.
We badly needed these wins, though, after the first game back after the last international break saw Arsenal concede two late goals to lose at Watford. Even though that game was controversial with another dodgy decision from the referee going against us, it left the fans on the brink of revolt and the team close to being out of the title race already.
Perhaps that result at Vicarage Road and the heavy criticism that followed has galvanized the Gunners because we have come from behind ourselves in the last three games, against Swansea, Norwich and Everton, while it took patience in Belgrade to pop up with a late winner.
These performances were not always convincing, although the results were right, and I can see one of two things happening; either the performances improve as the confidence grows from winning, or the results start to falter as the performances are not quite there.
So are we on the brink of brilliance, with Arsenal in full flow as we saw at times against the Toffees, or are we about to see more calamity like we saw against Watford?
