I don’t know about the rest of you Arsenal fans, but I think we should be feeling pretty lucky right now. Arsenal have had plenty of bad luck, but to find ourselves just off the top four and ahead of our big rivals Liverpool and Man United and just three points behind Man City after the way we have started the reason is a huge bonus.
Now we have two Premier League games against Burnley and Swansea City with a Champions League game at home against Anderlecht in between. This gives the Gunners a great chance to put our season back on track. And Chelsea’s draw at Old Trafford today keeps our faint title hopes alive. Plus the injury situation seems to be easing with Walcott and Ramsey back and we hope to have Koscielny fit again for Man United.
But let’s not get too carried away, because if Arsenal keep under performing as we have been doing, this bit of luck that we have got will all go to waste. Wenger has a big week ahead of him working with the players. The players must step up and take responsibility as well, but we have gone on long successful runs before and if we can do it again, maybe this season will not turn out to be the damp squib that it was looking like.
