I am writing this before the kick off between Arsenal and Man United today and hopefully the Gunners will get the win and the three points we need to keep up with the current Premier League leaders Leicester City and back up the comments of Arsene Wenger.
Why Arsenal won’t fade this year DN
Many pundits (and quite a lot of so-called Arsenal fans as well) are fully expecting Arsenal’s title challenge to fade in the next month or two, and the club will end up in a fight to remain third or fourth in the table. In their defence they will point to the many times in the last ten years when we have been leading the table in Jan/Feb only to slip away at the death.
It is always strange that some teams are considered to be bogey teams, but there is no other word to describe Chelsea’s superiority over Arsenal this century. It is five years since the Gunners beat our London rivals and amazingly we haven’t scored a goal in the last five League meetings, although three of the last four at the Emirates have been goalless draws.
The young Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin has been a dream since he was added to the Gunners first team by default, But all Gooners have been worried about Barcelona coming back to pinch their old academy player. We all know how long the tapping up of Cesc Fabregas went on to persuade him to return to the Nou Camp and there is no doubt that the Catalans will start trying to persuade the Spaniard to return home as soon as possible.
Even if Arsenal had come away from the Hawthorns with a point (and yes Santi Cazorla and Joel Campbell I am looking at you) then all the talk among Arsenal fans and the football media today would not have been so much about what went wrong against West Brom and whether this is the start of another crumble for the Gunners.

Hey everyone, this transfer window being the usual… huh? Smoke and mirrors from the boss, what’s not to like?
So we’ve only signed a 33 year old Czech Republic goal keeper, shirt 33 who’s played 333 games in the premier league, and we’re going steady. People though believe we should sign another two top players to challenge for the league .I don’t know if that’s right or wrong but that’s their opinion.
Arsenal skipper Mikel Arteta has penned a new contract with the club and has ended speculation from all quarters.
The Spanish midfielder had actually agreed a new one-year deal months ago. But, the protracted delay by the 33-year-old in signing the contract gave rise to suspicions that Arteta would be following the curse of Fabregas, Van Persie and Vermaelen who were allowed to leave despite being the club captain..
