There is little reason that Arsenal can’t manage their third win in a row tomorrow when they face Burnley, despite an ever-lengthening injury list, so Arsene Wenger is trying to gee the remaining players up by saying that Arsenal can still catch Chelsea in the race for the Premiership title.
Arsenal are currently 20/1 to win the title with Chelsea very short favourites, but enger says these prices are false. He said today: “I don’t write ourselves off, we can do it.
“[The title odds] don’t consider who we played, the quality of the other teams, missing players.
“I believe we will come back and we can prove that on pitch.”
Arsenal fans know more than anyone (see last season) that a nine-point lead is easily dismantled with a run of bad results, so of course it is definitely mathematically possible for the Gunners to catch Jose Mourinho’s men, but from what we’ve seen so far the strength of Chelsea looks like they will over-run any team in the Premiership. They have already played Arsenal, Man City and Man United and still remain unbeaten, while they have won every single other League game, which must surely be continued this weekend at home to Queens Park Rangers.
Yes Arsenal can get up a winning run against inferior opposition, but for Chelsea to drop enough points for us to catch them? I doubt it somehow…
