I would not start pre-ordering the Arsenal 2016-17 Premier League winners merchandise just yet Gooners, even though things are looking a lot more rosy at the end of this weekend than they were just a couple of weeks ago when it was looking like the old nemesis of November was going to send Arsenal spinning out of the race again.
We Gooners have good reason to be happy right now as this blip was nothing like the ones that have sprung up in the past and that is hugely encouraging to our hopes of ending the wait for another title win. But there is a long way to go and, let’s be honest, Arsenal have plenty of ways to mess this up.
The injury problems that we hoped the addition of fitness and training experts seems to be just as bad as ever and I feel that we are already missing key players like Cazorla. Imagine if we lost Ozil or Alexis Sanchez and I am not just being pessimistic because it always seems to happen.
There are still plenty of questions for this Arsenal squad to answer as well. Do we have the winning mentality? Can we avoid the complacency and/or nerves that has seen us lose games we should win at crucial times? Can we stay strong in the games against big rivals in the second half of the season? Will Arsene Wenger use the January transfer window to fix any obvious weaknesses we have at that point?
Don’t get me wrong I am excited and encouraged by Arsenal this season but I cannot help wondering if there are still some of the same old problems. What do you guys think?
