Although it would seem that most JustArsenal readers have given up on the Gunners winning the title, the fact remains that there are still 27 points up for grabs and the race is far from over. For Arsenal that means that every single game is a must-win from now on, starting with Everton today, and the Toffees manager Roberto Martinez sees no reason why Arsenal’s experience can’t take us back into the hunt.
“They are a team that, in my eyes, still have a really good opportunity to win the league,” Martinez said. “A lot has been said about Leicester, and rightly so because of the lead they have at this point. It’s a huge gap, but the three-point system means the distance is smaller than it looks.
“For me, Arsenal, with the experience they have, the knowhow and clarity of how they play football, it doesn’t matter what pressure is on them; they will always play with a certain style and be very good with that. I still feel they are strong title contenders and that’s what we face at Goodison.
“It’s an important game before the international break, so all the focus goes in trying to replicate our performance against Chelsea.”
If you agree with Martinez and think Arsenal can go on and take the title, then you can still back them at 6/1 right now. And if you use one of the bonus vouchers from Top10Bet.com, you could even back them with the bookies money! Everton have been extremely unpredictable this season, so the fact that they beat Chelsea last week could work in Arsenal’s favour. Martinez is right that Arsenal’s experience consists of fighting to keep themselves in the Top Four at the end of the season, but I’m afraid this team has little experience in actually winning it. All we can do is cheer them on and hope for the best….
