I am sure that this has not escaped the attention of the Arsenal manager and hopefully Arsene Wenger can transmit some real urgency into his Arsenal players ahead of our penultimate Premier League game of the season. It is not just about securing third position and keeping good form ahead of the FA cup final, by any means, because Arsenal can still finish above Man City in second.

It is not such a crazy idea, even though Pellegrini´s team are currently five points ahead of Arsenal. Their extra goal difference means that we really have to win both of our remaining games and hope they lose their one, but their final game is against Southampton who are still fighting for a Europa League place and who just put six past an in form Aston Villa, so it is by no means a lost cause.
They will start next weekend just one point behind the Spuds and will definitely be trying to win, but I am not so sure how much second place means to Man City and their about-to-be-rebuilt squad. All we can do is to win our two games and hope, and so in tomorrow´s clash with Sunderland it is vital that we start well and approach the game with the right attitude.
The players need to show much they want it and with a place in the team for Wembley up for grabs, they have even more reason. But will they do it or could we be heading for more dropped points?
