Arsenal are pretty used to dropping behind the League leaders in the New Year but traditionally have an excellent run of form towards the end of the campaign, usually to claim a place in the Top Four. This season we are in a much better position just three points behind the leaders and Arsene Wenger is confident that we will once again have a strong finish and hopefully this time it will end up with Arsenal as Champions.
Before Marten Skrtel was allowed free rein in the Arsenal penalty box to snatch an injury time leveller and deny the Gunners a famous and vital away win at Anfield, there may still have been a few Gooners who were hanging on to the hope that this could be the season when Arsenal win the Premier League title again.
The problems at Arsenal lie deeper than the surface by KM
At the end of the past week, Arsenal managed to get two wins from two away games. On the surface that looks like a deal you would take at any time. The problem with AFC is that there is always a “but”. We took the points, but the performances were awful once again.
Wenger is Arsenal’s man according to Gunners legend! by Ash

If that is true, Arsenal are due to win the lottery in the next few weeks, because nothing else has gone the way of the Gunners this year. I know that lots of Gooners will berate me for going on about this subject again, but yet again lady luck was conspicuously absent at the Emirates today.
