None of this will matter if Arsenal do not do their bit by putting the disappointment of two defeats in the space of a week away to Everton and Man City firmly to one side and start winning again, but I am pretty confident that the Gunners will get six points from the next two games, at home to West Brom and Crystal Palace.
That will certainly help to alleviate the despair of the Arsenal fans and it should give all of the under pressure players a big lift too. That would put us on 40 points at the halfway stage and even if Chelsea also keep up their current winning run it would give us half a season to close the nine point gap, which is more than enough time.
And I would expect the law of averages to kick in a bit to see the current league leaders drop some points, especially considering that there are six big clubs fighting it out at the top. Surely between Man United, Liverpool, Man City, Tottenham and Arsenal there will be a lot of pressure on Chelsea.
In fact you would expect all of these clubs to take points off the others over the course of the season and over the next month or so Chelsea have away games with Tottenham and Liverpool before the Gunners go to their ground. Of course having a very tight race for the title could make things harder for Arsenal but at the minute the most important thing is for something to stop Chelsea’s momentum.
How do you guys see the rest of the season going?
