Hector Bellerin has warned our rival side Tottenham Hotspur that Arsenal are in a great place coming into the crunch match on Sunday. Arsenal won against Leicester City last night to give themselves a third consecutive win in all competitions for the first time since January, and are now looking ahead to taking on Spurs at White Hart Lane this weekend.
The latest results have been fed into the so-called ‘Super-Computer’, and Arsenal’s updated final finishing position has been predicted.
Chelsea look assured winners of the Premier League title, holding a 10-point lead over second-placed Tottenham currently, as well as having no European football to distract them from their ever-nearing goal.
Tottenham beat Premier League leaders Chelsea last night, meaning Arsenal dropped out of the top four of the table, whilst stopping them from building on their eight point lead over our side.
The Blues were looking near-unstoppable of late, having won their last 13 league outings equalling the all-time top-flight record of consecutive wins in a single term, but last night’s result put an end to that run.
I think that, if pushed, on what was best from an Arsenal point of view from the Premier League match at Old Trafford, Arsene Wenger may well have gone for a draw between Manchester United and Tottenham. But for us fans I think that our local rivals losing was even better.
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.
