Arsenal’s EPL top 4 nearly safe with Man Utd and Spurs injury woe?

Arsene Wenger has once again had to cope with more injury problems to his players than any of Arsenal’s Premier League rivals. Many more in fact, so although it does not feel very sporting to be happy to hear about any player getting injured, even if they play for your most hated rival, I am certainly not sorry to hear about the huge injury blows that both Tottenham and Manchester United are now faced with.

Mourinho’s Red Devils were already facing a big problem after their top scorer and main man Zlatan Ibrahimovic picked up a three game ban which will see him miss the trip to Middlesborough and the following game against West Brom at Old Trafford.

And their striker crisis has deepened massively with Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney picking up knocks. Even Marcus Rashford was said to be out of the FA cup clash with Chelsea through illness but since that there have been reports that he might play.

Even with Rashford though, United have a big problem up front which will hopefully see them drop points and help Arsenal’s hunt for a top four finish. We could also be on for another St. Totteringham’s day after the spuds lost their own top scorer and talisman Harry Kane to an ankle injury that Sky Sports are saying could end his season.

Of course this all means nothing if they fo not drop points or if Arsenal fail to capitalise. Over to you Gunners…

    Nonsense, what is the essence of top 4 when u failed every season in Europe, or taking delight in your rivals injury. So Arsenal has really degenerated to that extent of some fans thinking like this,too bad.

    I have learnt from d Arsenal Situation n the lesson learnt is never hold on to something that is failing u or something that has failed… Arsenal as a club has stuck 2 Wenger for too long to d extent that people no longer think d club can/could exist without Wenger, as much as he brought a lot to d club people fail 2 Realize dat Arsenal also made Wenger who he is today… Let’s keep sentiment aside and analyze d issues in Arsenal critically, we don’t stand a chance against Chelsea, Man. United, Tottenham, Man. City d list goes on, every business has to have a balance u don’t prioritize money n ignore customer satisfaction that’s what the board in Arsenal has done n d earlier they realise this n change d better I still support Arsenal n will still do but I think change has to come or else we may become another Leeds United FC…

    I hate to compare our players mentality and that of United’s. Yes they lost but the way they fought with 10 men for 90 mins was superb. They didn’t crumble like arsenal. I know bayern and Chelsea are different but Chelsea are the best club as of now in England and to frustrate them and play like that after just coming from Russia 3 days ago is amazing. This is what I want from arsenal. I don’t mind losing once ina while but show passion and fight .

      Well, Arsenal played with 9 men against Chelsea and they didn’t crumble either. We were about to level the game when Cazorla was sent off. Trouble is that Arsenal gets more of these moments than Manure, you can only take so much without saying, well, fsck it.

    I don’t want no top 4, also i don’t want to hear we need Cl to attract top players.

    Honestly I`m tired of the mediocrity that has characterized our dear club. If Leicester (as small as they are) can sack Ranieri after all he did for them. Why can`t this club get a younger and better manager to replace Wenger. I mean is it too much for the board to desire to win the CL and the EPL? You spent 17million on a player you don`t have any plans of using.What sort of a manager is that? You bought Takuma Assano, Yaya Sanogo. Players that will never make your first team.

    What a daft comment to make ” Arsenals EPL top 4 nearly safe “….We still have to play our remaining games and whether we finish in the top 4 or not will be down to how we play in those remaining games and not other teams injury problems.
