I almost made the title of this post Arsenal’s treble Premier League title boost but the third thing would have been that Arsenal are playing well, apart from a few rogue games and results, and that surely has to be the case if the Gunners are to end the season on top of the table and lift the big trophy next May.
A lot of Arsenal fans are worried about the current injury situation at the club for two reasons. First of all there is the concern that we will not be able to continue the brilliant start to the season and could rop some valuable Premier League points over the next few weeks and secondly there is the concern that the underlying injury problems at the club are still there.
Fair enough, calling the Premier League fixture list `evil´ may be taking things a bit too far, but I still think that the Arsenal boss should have some sense of sympathy with his fellow Premier League boss Louis van Gaal, because I feel that the Man United boss is right to say that the lack of a winter break in England is not good for Arsenal or any other Premier League club.
The next few weeks could turn out to be absolutely pivotal for Arsenal and out hopes of ending the 11 year wait and earning the right to lift the Premier League trophy at the end of this season. The Gunners have recovered from a shaky start and with none of our big Premier League rivals having made us pay, we are now in a great position.
It was a huge relief for Arsenal fans to see Man City slip to their first defeat, and their first dropped points, in the Premier League this season. West Ham did us a huge favour by adding the scalp of the league leaders to that of us and Liverpool. Let´s hope they can do the same to Man United and Chelsea.
