Arsenal came within of cats whisker of our fourth win in a row at Tottenham on Saturday, and the performance certainly earned a lot of praise from players and pundits alike, despite Aubameyang’s last minute penalty miss. There definitely seems to be a massive change in the players mentality and they are playing with confidence and belief, and despite us being written off as Top Four material right from the start of the season, the players can now see the light at the end of the tunnel and we will be a prime position if we can take all three points from Man United this weekend.
Our new defensive stalwart Sokratis spoke for the players when he said: “We have nine games and we are there,”
“Next week also is very important.
“Big game. In our home we have to take the three points. What I saw against Tottenham, the spirit of the team, I am very happy and I think if we are like this until the end we can do it.
“It’s not about how we play, it’s also that we have all started to believe that we can do it.
“This is very important for the team, for the spirit. Every day in training we know that we are there, and it’s very important for us.
“It’s very important for us and our manager that we take one of the four positions so that next year we are in the Champions League.”
We gave Tottenham a shock last week, and if we can stop a resurgent Man United next week as well, maybe us fans will also start to believe in the team. Who would have thought that we would be in this position at the start of the season? Or even just a few weeks ago!
