Arsenal under MORE pressure after EPL rivals falter

Arsenal can go second in the Premier League table, which would be good for the Gunners of course, because yesterday was one of those strange days when nothing went as planned or as the form guide would lead us to believe, with every single one of our main rivals for the title dropping points, or those who played anyway.

The biggest upset was Liverpool losing to the bottom club Swansea at Anfield, which also made our own heavy wimn at the Liberty Stadium last weekend look a lot better, but Man United needed a bit of Fergie time and a 94th minute Rooney free kick just to get a point at Stoke and I have to say Man City were unlucky only to get a point off Tottenham. Not only did they outplay the spuds throughout but they were denied a clear penalty and a red card for Walker less than a minute before they equalised.

What it all means is that Arsenal will go above them all if we beat Burnley but at the same time the pressure is now on Arsene Wenger and the players not to let Chelsea get a free ride this weekend. They will already be rubbing their hands after the weekend´s results so far and if we fail to beat Burnley then the pressure on their own game against Hull City will be exactly zero.

Can Arsenal exert just a little pressure on the leaders?



  1. Eddy Hoyte says:

    “I would’ve loved to have played in the same team as him on a Saturday,He can adapt to any striker and play to their strengths.
    People don’t understand how good he is. People get confused with thinking he’s lazy or doesn’t care. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

    “I’d urge him to stay and become an Arsenal legend,Win that first title. Be the future of Arsenal. Not just the assist man, but the guy who drives the team forward. He can do that with Alexis Sanchez.
    They have to be at the top of their game every single match. They can be those guys. They must believe it.
    This Arsenal side are not far from winning the title.”

    I also believe our title chances rest on their shoulders add Giroud to that.. Lets win today by a big margin today..we’ll pick up from here.. from now on,every league match is a UCL final. COYG

    I don’t care much how it happens but just give me a win. Also i hope we start Sanchez upfront today, i really like the form Giroud has been in but we seem to start very slow whenever he plays.

    Now we are at home and against a team that will obviously just sit back and counter so we need to add as much mobilty forward as possible to pressure them.

  3. Fatboy Gooney says:

    If we don’t win today then Arsenal fc should seriously think about changing the nick name from The Gunners to The Bottlers. ??

  4. Samuel Akinsola Adebosin says:

    I want to assure all and sundry of the Gooners that Arsenal will bastardize Burnley with a 4 goals to nil hammering today at the Emirates Stadium. So, there is no need for panicking by any Gooner but to be confident for Arsenal will get this good result over the line successfully. While Arsenal will collect maximum points in their game against Burnley to move up to 2nd in the table as widely expected, Chelsea who are not immured from dropping points may also drop a couple of points today in their home match against Hull City later at the Bridge.
