Just a few days ago it looked as though any hopes of Arsenal getting another top four finish in the Premier League were slipping away and that the only realistic hope we had was to beat Man City on the Emirates pitch and then during the end of the season run-in.
We only managed to rescue a point of course and City may still be the team for Arsenal to beat to get into the Champions League, but not necessarily. All of a sudden the position of Liverpool is looking precarious and in some ways they might be an easier target for the Gunners to aim at.
Yes Man City lost away to Chelsea but they played very well and were unlucky, whereas Klopp’s team were not so good and their defensive frailties were on show again as Bournemouth pinched two soft goals to earn a point at Anfield. If I was a Liverpool fan I would be very worried about the Sane injury as they have not won an EPL game without him all season and he could miss the rest of it.
The next two games see Liverpool travel to Stoke and West Brom which are not easy games, while we have injury ravaged Crystal Palace and struggling Middlesborough. We also have two games in hand on the scousers and are just six points worse off, so do Arsenal now have both Man City and Liverpool within reach?
