Arsenal are currently on target to miss out on the top four for the first time in two decades, but this weekend could prove to turn things around once more.
This season has been amazing for the neutrals, but for us Gunners it has been tough, and has piled on the stress levels.
Our current league position leaves us dreading the worst, but this weekend could well show up a number of positive results for our side, with each of our rivals facing tough opposition.
Manchester United have to face Premier League leaders Chelsea, who have already beat them twice this term without conceding a single goal, and while the Red Devils can boast an unbeaten record in the league since they last took on the Blues in October, they have drawn much more games than they would wish to remember. I certainly wouldn’t put money on a win for the home side.
Manchester City also face a tough task, with Southampton posing as a problem for many sides, ourselves included. The Saints have knocked both us and Liverpool out of the League Cup this year, and have a number of players who can cause serious problems to any team in the division.
Liverpool have the easiest opponents on paper, but West Brom have shown how clinical they can be, and are not to be underestimated when it comes to set pieces, as they showed against us this month.
Whether the results are good or bad, our side will be under immense pressure to close the gap on Monday night, and it would most certainly be nice for our players to have the added belief in our top four chances.
Would there be more or less pressure on our players if our rivals were all drop points this weekend? Which of the above do you expect to win?
