Confidence and momentum are the keys to Arsenal turning their season around.
History is littered with elite teams having disastrous runs, no team is immune and yet before, during and after those runs they have the same squad more or less, it is generally just the manager that changes.
What drags teams out of a rut is a single good win, in fact, it is not just elite teams this happens to. Take Leicester City the season before they won the league they almost got relegated and had to win seven of their last nine games to ensure their survival. The very next season they win the title with almost the same squad.
More or less the same players they go from a relegation dog fight to Premier League winners and it all started with a winner in the last five minutes against West Ham followed up with a 3-2 win away at West Brom thanks to two goals in the last ten minutes to overturn a 2-1 deficit. From that point onwards they took off.
That is all it takes, a good win and confidence starts to return and momentum takes off.
There is no telling when that could happen for Arsenal but I am confident it will do.
It could be Monday evening away at West Ham or even at home to Man City.
These are more or less the same players that played Spurs off the pitch in the second half earlier this season, the same team that held Man Utd at Old Trafford and never be kidded that United are there for the taking at Old Trafford.
Almost the same team that went on a 22 game unbeaten run last season and if anything, the squad has been strengthened since then.
It is clear that certain players have almost no confidence right now, Nicholas Pepe seems to be one, the central defenders and definitely Lucas Torreira.
They will be different players once a couple of wins are secured. It may get worse before it gets better but it will get better. It just seems that it never will, that is all.
