As an Arsenal fan I have spent the last few weeks cheering on Leicester City because as soon as it was clear that Arsene Wenger would not be picking up the Premier League trophy in May, the only small consolation I could take was if it did not end up in north London at the home of Tottenham instead.
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger could be forgiven for thinking that Stoke are determined to cause the Gunners problems this season. It was back in mid January when Arsenal travelled to the Potteries to face Mark Hughes´ side looking to get back to the top of the table after drawing with Liverpool.
Arsenal head into the rearranged Premier League clash with West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates tonight knowing that only a win will do. Anything less than all three points will keep our top four rivals Manchester United from being within touching distance, after they did what Arsenal failed to do last weekend and beat Crystal Palace last night.
Arsenal dropped more points at the weekend, leaving us in the fourth and final Champions League place, and are losing grip on our place in next season’s elite competition.
The Gunners failed to make the most of their chances this weekend, which allowed Crystal Palace to walk away from the Emirates with a point, while Manchester City leapfrogged us into third in the table.
Two draws against West Ham and Crystal Palace has put Arsenal in a precarious position in the League. We are now in 4th, behind Man City on goal difference with a visit to the Etihad still to come. Also the extremely erratic Man United are only 4 points behind us as well putting us under even more pressure to start racking up some more points.
Lots of Arsenal fans seem uninterested in the last run out of game until the end of the season now that it looks impossible to catch Leicester City for the title, but Arsene Wenger is very aware that there is still much work to do just to ensure that the Gunners will make the Champions League as usual next season, especially with the added complication of Liverpool maybe gaining entry via the Europa League.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger today revealed that he is not looking to make major changes to his current squad before the new campagn, so we thought we’d look at the latest possible arrivals.
There have been loads of Arsenal transfer rumours lately that Arsene Wenger is going to have a clear out of underperforming Gunners this summer, in a final bid to win the Premiership in the last year of his current contract. To be honest it sounds very unlike Wenger as his favourite words are usually cohesion and team spirit during the summer transfer window.
