Arsenal fans out there may have thought this season could not get any worse, with the massive size of the gap between our club and the Premier League leaders showing just how far away from another EPL title the Gunners have become, while our chances of getting back into those key top four spots has also been out of the question for some time.
However, it now looks like the once mighty Arsenal might do the unthinkable this season and fail to qualify for Europe at all. I am not just talking about the possibility of the side finishing sixth in the Premier League missing out because of the FA cup winner’s place either, but the almost unthinkable situation of us finishing lower than sixth.
Unless the Gunners perform and take all three points from our clash with Stoke City tomorrow that will be a distinct possibility after Burnley notched up their third win in a row by winning away at West Brom today. They are now just two points behind Arsenal and they have no Europa League to distract them. You can just imagine how much Sean Dyche and the Clarets’ players will be trying to achieve this.
On the other hand there will be more pressure than ever on our own players and on Arsene Wenger to avoid this further embarrassment. The question now is how Arsenal will cope with this pressure. What do you think Gooners?
