Why Arsenal WILL now stay in Premier League top four?

It has been a long time coming for Arsenal, and has been a tough task to drag ourselves back into the top four of the Premier League after a poor start was compounded by a few injury problems and a rotten record away from home which was not helped by some pretty poor decisions from the match officials.

The big question now is whether the Gunners can stick around and cement our place in the top four or whether we Gooners will, instead, look back on this weekend as a brief moment in the sun before we drop below Liverpool and Tottenham again.

Arsenal were certainly helped by the fixture list this weekend which saw Chelsea and Liverpool face each other, but at the same time a lot of pundits did not expect us to win at Burnley, and you could say that we have not had much luck so far in this Premier League campaign.

Sky Sports reported that Arsene Wenger accepted that Arsenal were quite lucky to get that late goal, although he did say it was definitely a penalty, because Burnley had done very well to blunt our attack and are clearly a tough team to beat at Turf Moor. So that could be a massive goal come the end of the season although the boss wanted to play down any early talk of getting back into the Champions League next season.

He said, “It’s early, it changes from one week to another. We wanted to win away from home and we did it. It’s only November and it is too early to talk about the Champions League.”

Only time will tell, of course, but I am fairly confident about Arsenal staying where we are or rising higher rather than slipping back. A look at the upcoming games shows that despite facing second placed Manchester United next weekend, there is no reason for us to worry.

We are at home against United and do have a decent recent record against them at the Emirates. Our other games before the festive period are at home to Huddersfield and Newcastle and away to West Ham and Southampton, so as long our form does not collapse there should be a lot of points coming our way.

Also, apart from Man City, our rivals do not look too great or consistent themselves. Unfortunately the title looks like City’s to lose but Arsenal for me should be one of the clubs ready to take advantage if they do. Will Arsenal still be in the top four at the halfway stage, do you think?

    Think it depends on injuries & also team selection. Yes the matches we have before Christmas, we should win….. not sure about United though ? but it’s always the games we should win that we usually slip up in. Confidence should be on the up now surely…… COYG

      You are a joker, a hypocrite, non-realist and your sentiment is legendary!
      #top Six stat #
      Well beaten by Liverpool
      Haven’t played Man u yet
      Lost more matches than the top Six already
      Awful away record
      Only scored more goals than Tottenham
      Only Liverpool had concede more goals than Arsenal
      Having our two best players possibly leaving on a bosman deal

      Facts… You might wanna have some before making a sentimentally sweeping statement ladened with utter foolishness.

        I don’t think @ Abiola is wrong. As it stands apart from Man city, only Chelsea and Man u are above Arsenal. We outplayed Chelsea and drew at the bridge. We are yet to play Man u so you can’t say both of them are better than us. COYG.

    I trully believe that the win against spurs last weekend gave Arsenal a momentum in the title race. Arsenal are playing with such confidence that we have not seen since the beginning of the season. The question then is : will they keep that momentum up or will they crush under pressure as the season goes on?

    We may stay in the top four, but if we’re not winning the league, is there any point given how bad we are under Wenger in the CL?

    I am so elated with the win against Burnley.

    Yes the win was ugly. A win is a win but you all will agree with me that Wenger will also contest the penalty had it been awarded against us.

    My bite is the way we were out muscled, out paced and out skilled. They defended and attacked as a team. They had a game plan.
    Anytime they had the ball I was scared and anytime we had the ball I was still scared!

    We saw how important Ozil is to the team. We saw what he brings to the team. If you don’t it means you can’t read games. Don’t try managing a team.

    WHF happened to our fast and free flowing football? We were called the barca of England but now everyone is beating us at our game. It’s so saddening!

    No we won’t . Head to head we are still beneath Liverpool an spurs in actual quality
    We would need more games like that nld to have a Shot

    I’m very curious to the frequency and timing of mesut ozils illnesses

    We need a player like him only more consistent . Less Hollywood and more bottle ….where do we find that ?

    What a bunch of moaners, unbelievable we just won two games back to back and all we are reading is the same doomsday malaki you lot need a reality check, the players grind out a win away it’s still not good enough and my thinking is that the boys need to to be apppalauded

    1. ThirdManJW

      They deserve credit for the last two games, but what about the previous 11 in the league? The “reality check” needed, is that we’ve been 12pts off the top since the beginning of November, four defeats already (more than Burnley), and our top players are leaving on a free in seven months time. It’s very difficult to NOT be pessimistic, given our current situation, and the fact we know how it always ends with Wenger.

    Wow u’d think we actually lost going by the garbage the usual bunch of moaners as i’ve seen them called are tossing about. Like we didnt just leapfrog tot’nm into fourth. Like we didnt just beat one of the most organised, drilled, hard to break down teams who i wont mention lie sixth in the pl table. Am but sorry we didnt lose.. Feel free to hang yourselves.

    1. Mobella

      Yes we are 12 points behind city but i can’t see the connection with our win today. Would you prefer us to lose. We have lost more games than Burnley and 3 points ahead. We just won an away game against the most organised team in the league. The manner of winning is inconsequential, what matters is the winning. Finally, Spurs is 13 points behind city, Liverpool is 14 points behind and these are team that are better than us.
