The only way that Arsenal would be able to take anything positive out of a 12th season without winning or even coming close to winning the Premier League title was if we won the FA cup and finished in the top four to qualify for the Champions League.
Even those two things were not really enough for most of the increasingly frustrated and disillusioned Arsenal fans, but now it is looking like we will not even do that after we lost today at West Brom and may have lost our star man Alexis Sanchez to an ankle injury.
Arsene Wenger said after the game that it did not look good for the Chilean and we can only hope that he is not out for too long. We do have the international break coming up but on April 2nd the Gunners will be back in action with an EPL home game against Man City.
Lose that and it is very hard to see us getting a top four spot. Towards the end of April we face Pep Guardiola’s team again, this time at Wembley stadium in the FA cup semi-final. Even with Alexis in the side it is hard to be confident of Arsenal getting to the final with the form we are currently showing.
Without him, is our season done and dusted?
