Knowing our luck and the way the season has been going so far for Arsenal, this weekend will probably go in the exact opposite way to the one we want. But looking at the fixtures as well as the struggles that some of our big rivals are having, there is a better chance that this could be a dream few days for Arsenal in the Premier League.
First up we have Chelsea playing host to Southampton in the early Saturday kick-off. While Koeman´s team with no real pressure and with the confidence boost of having won their last game and stopped their mini-slump, Chelsea will rarely have felt worse and the Stamford Bridge crowd could turn ugly (or uglier should I say) if they start slowly.
I have to mention the slating that the TV pundits dished out last night, quality stuff and what I have been saying about Maureen for ages. The mask is slipping and if they do not win on Saturday, there is just a remote chance that they could hit the skids, giving the Gunners just a glimmer of hope in the title race.
Arsenal must be focused and make sure we beat West Ham of course. Then we have Man City away to Burnley, who have been pretty good at times, especially at home, while City always seem to be on the verge of a calamity. If things go our way, the Gunners could end Saturday just six points behind the league leaders and closer to Man City as well.
Sunday sees the spuds go to Man United and a draw would be ideal and also not really a surprise to anyone and it would give us real breathing space in the race for the top four. I would also not be that shocked to see Swansea take points off Liverpool on Monday night. The home crowd is a big plus point and they are always fired up to face their former boss.
All these results going the way of Arsenal is pretty unlikely of course, but stranger things have happened Gooners.
