Arsenal fans would still have the hope of a record breaking 13th FA cup trophy win to celebrate if the Premier League season fizzles out with f a first failure in 20 years to secure a top four spot and a place in the Champions League, but only a successful run in to the league as well as that cup final win would make this season anything like a success for the Gunners.
That makes the next week or so absolutely massive for Arsenal, as we are set to face both Tottenham and Manchester United in our next two game and the results of those could either make or break our season. Two wins would give Arsene Wenger and the lads 66 points after 34 games and that is the same as Liverpool are now on.
Depending on what happens in tonight’s Manchester derby it could well see us go above Jose Mourinho’s team and maybe even Pep Guardiola’s Man City as well. Our toughest two games would be out of the way and confidence would be high, so with Wenger and Arsenal’s record of strong finishes I would then see us a favourites for the top four.
Even four points from the next two games would be a good outcome, especially if the win came against United. On the flip side it would leave us with a mountain to climb if we lost both games, or even one to be fair, so can the Gunners get themselves together and give their all to ensure that the next two EPL games make our season, not break it?
