Arsenal have missed a couple of opportunities in the last couple of weeks where they could have opened up a small gap at the top of the Premier League, but thanks to Jamie Vardy breaking the Premiership record by scoring in 11 games in a row and also to Bastian Schweinsteiger for getting his first goal for Man United, Arsenal now have a valid chance to go top again this weekend.
Okay it may be slim as it means the Gunners have to win by five clear goals to top Man City on goal difference,but I simply refuse to believe that this is an impossible aim. Norwich may have started this season in promising fashion, but their heads have dropped completely since they conceded six goals against a weak Newcastle side. They have lost five of their last six League games and last week, although Chelsea only beat them 1-0 in the end, Jose Mourinho’s side could have easily scored 5 or 6 if they were finishing as well as they were last season.
The Gunners used up all their bad luck in last weeks game against West Brom, but now with injuries easing and the extra confidence gained from being on the brink of reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League, I can see a landslide win for Arsenal. It is about time that we had everything go our way and I really can’t see a dispirited Norwich City standing up to us for more than 15 minutes.
Get an early goal and Arsenal could certainly be on our way to the summit of the Premier League at last!
