Although it looks like Arsenal have booked their place in the top four by beating Liverpool today and stretching the gap between us and fifth place to nine points, it is not all done and dusted. What Arsenal fans want now though is to keep winning games and to give Chelsea a real fight for the title and Man United could be a big help.
The spuds could close that gap to seven points tomorrow by beating Burnley away from home so the Gunners cannot afford to ease up. We do not want fourth place now, however, as that would seem a disappointment from our current position. The fact that United keep winning is keeping us on our toes, though, and that is one of the ways they could help us.
By having to keep taking all three points in every game, the Gunners have already closed the gap a little to Chelsea and with the great form we are showing and the end of our injury problems, there is no reason why Arsenal cannot win our remaining seven league games.
One of those games is at home against Chelsea, which would close the gap further. Before that, however, Jose Mourinho’s side play host to Man United and I have never wanted United to win a game so much. Even getting a draw at Stamford Bridge would do us a huge favour and would have the mouthy one feeling the pressure.
United hos Man City next week, another of our title rivals, so they are going to have a big say on the way the season ends. Of course, we also want them to be off colour when the Gunners travel to Old Trafford in May. Have you got all that Mr. van Gaal?
