The time to hesitate is through, sang Jim Morrison of The Doors, and if Arsenal are to break on through to the other side and actually win a Premier League title rather than the Wenger trophy of finishing in the top four Champions League places, I think the same is true for the Gunners.
After the shock loss to Watford last night (which is maybe not such a huge surprise after the recent problems we had at Bournemouth) some Arsenal fans and pundits will have already given up on the possibility of Arsenal catching Chelsea.
I must admit that our chances look extremely slim and are hanging by a thread, but having said that we do still have a lot of the season to play and Arsenal go to Chelsea this weekend knowing that a win will leave us just six points behind the leaders with 14 games to play.
While that would not be an insurmountable gap, anything less than an Arsenal win at Stamford Bridge on Saturday would surely spell the end of our title hopes, so it has to be a win and there is no time for messing about. Arsenal must forget about patience or settling into this match. We must attack, pure and simple.
We can do it as well. Arsene Wenger and the players should be buoyed by the way that Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and all took Chelsea apart in September and aim to do the same again. It is a risky strategy and could see Chelsea hit us on the break, but I truly believe that a defeat would not make much difference to a draw, while a victory may well get us back on track.
Will Arsenal go on the attack and will it be enough?
