From what we have seen from the Arsenal team so far it is going to take a significant turnaround in form to achieve two wins from the next two Premier League encounters, but we know that the Gunners can blow hot and cold and so I would not be at all surprised if Arsene Wenger and the players confound the general consensus of the football pundits and do it.
Bournemouth at home is a game you would almost hand pick at the minute, with Arsenal fans ready to revolt and desperate for any sort of positive from the club. The Cherries might even provide the extra morale boost of getting hammered if Arsenal can score early and start to produce the kind of flowing, creative and attacking football for which we have become famous under Le Prof.
So for arguments sake let us say we win today. Next up would be Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and although an away clash with the reigning EPL champions does not sound appetising we should remember that Arsenal have well and truly put to one side the awful record we had against them for years.
A 3-0 smashing in the league last season has been followed up by the FA cup final win and the Community Shield last month, so there is no reason why Arsenal cannot come away from next weekend’s game with all three points. That would give us nine, which would make us at least level on points with Chelsea who currently have six and would almost certainly catapult us back to the top part of the table and put Arsenal back in contention with the teams hoping to lift the Premier League trophy next May.
So why not just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride Gooners?
