If Arsenal do not carry on from where they left off before the current break for the latest international games and come back from the Premier League away tie at Watford with all three points, it will not be the first time that the Gunners have proved me wrong.
Arsenal have already proved me wrong this season, though, because I thought it was going to be a season that lurched from crisis to disaster judging on the opening three EPL games. I still don’t think that Arsenal have hit top gear or even come close to our best form as yet, but I have liked the way they are fighting for each other and getting results even if the performances are not as good as they can be.
That new element to the Gunners make up is why I expect us to win at Vicarage Road on Saturday, even though the home team are no pushover and have been in good form so far. Arsene Wenger will have players back from injury and others like Wilshere having gained more fitness over this break so I think we have too much quality for the Hornets as long as the attitude is right and the effort is there.
The Gunners go into the next round of league games just outside the top four, but only by goal difference to Chelsea and a single point to Tottenham, so any slip ups there will see us break into the top four for the first time this season and if that does not happen this week it will be the one after or the one after that.
Arsenal have Watford, a woefully out of sorts Everton and then Swansea City up next and until we do get into the top four I think it will be full focus and maximum points. After that it is anyone’s guess which Arsenal we will see. What do you guys expect?
