It has been going on for too long now to be passed off as a lucky run. Arsenal fans have been, quite understandably, expecting the brilliant and unexpected run of results and performances from the league leaders Leicester City to dry up, but their win away to an in form Everton today shows that these Premier League upstarts are the real deal.
Of course they could have big problems keeping it up, especially if they lose one of their two main men Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, but we are nearly at the halfway point of the season now and they keep winning. So I think it is time for us to take them seriously and accept that Leicester are title contenders.
Did you know that they have only lost a single EPL game all season? That is championship quality Gooners.
However, the game they lost was against Arsenal so if anyone has reason not to fear them it is the Gunners.
Recently when they played against Man United and Chelsea I was happy for them to win, thinking that sooner or later they would be found out. They still might. But I do believe that Leicester are now a team we have to accept as one that could deny us the title.
I am not trying to be all doom and gloom here guys, I just want us to stop writing Leicester out of the equation. Hopefully Wenger will do the same.
