Arsenal get back to Premier League action this weekend, but as our game against AFC Bournemouth is due to be played on Sunday and the way that the other weekend fixtures are set then we could be six points off the top of the league table when we kick off at the Emirates Stadium.
When Arsenal take on Manchester United at Old Trafford tomorrow it will be just the third game of the month and there will still be three games left for the Gunners to play in November, so to say that we have to beat United tomorrow in an away game we have not won for 10 years in the Premier League to avoid this being another nightmare month may seem a bit harsh.
Petr Cech stated that his Arsenal side are in a great spot to land their first Premier League title in over a decade.
The Gunners limped to a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to neighbours Tottenham Hotspur today, which left them two points behind Liverpool at the head of the table.
Arsenal always want to win every game we play, of course, and just like any local derby the games against Tottenham take on extra significance. Arsene Wenger clearly understands the passion of the north London derby after being our manager for more than 20 years and with most of our players having been with us for quite a while you would assume that they do as well.
Arsenal fans found out to our cost just how well organised and frustrating Middlesbourough can be, as Aitor Karanka´s team held the Gunners to a draw a couple of weeks ago to halt our growing momentum and stop us going clear at the top of the Premier League.
When Arsene Wenger gave us the latest Arsenal injury update the other day, there was a lot of concern that our annual bad luck was coming back to cause us problems at the worst possible time, with the first north London derby of the season coming on Sunday.
Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he has five possible doubts for the weekend’s Arsenal-Tottenham match-up.
The Gunners play host to rivals Tottenham this weekend in the North London Derby, and both managers have question marks over the availability of some key players.
Jan Vertonghen has claimed his Tottenham side has been unlucky in recent weeks, and expects better against Arsenal.
Spurs make the short trip across North-London on Sunday to take us on, and we come into the game with very different form.
