Could Arsenal still lose Champions League place to Man United?

Most Arsenal fans clearly believe that the job was done last weekend when Arsenal stuck to the task and dug in to deny Man City the win that would have taken them above us in the Premier League table. It would only have been on goal difference but it would have meant that it would have been Arsene Wenger rather than Manuel Pellegrini looking over their shoulder at the chasing Manchester United of Louis van Gaal.

I am sure that Wenger is keen to drill into the Arsenal players this week that the job is not yet done, even though the away game at Man City was the really important one and that the chances of us missing out on the Champions League are fairly small. The fact of the matter is that the chance is still there.

I really hope that Slaven Bilic and his West Ham side do us a big favour tonight and take something from their clash with United, because that would mean that they could no longer catch us and even though City could still finish in third, the pressure would be off.

If United win tonight, in the final game to be played at Upton Park, the pressure will be on both Arsenal and City and even though we play the already relegated and awful Aston Villa at home in our final game, I am not confident enough in this Arsenal team and their ability to cope with pressure.

If we lost and City won they would finish higher on goal difference and if United beat West Ham and then Crystal Palace at the weekend they would finish a point better off than us. So could van Gaal and United still deny Arsenal a place in next season’s Champions League?

  1. Hahaha Palace? … Utd are at home to Bournemouth on Sunday and not Palace.

    I agree that our home game against Villa won’t be as easy as it looks on paper, as we all know that our team under performs when the expectations are high and there’s also the other strange facts that teams who have already been relegated, seem to start playing better ? when its too late.

    Anyways! .. I fancy West Ham to beat Utd tonight, what with all the emotions regarding it being their last home game before moving to the Olympic stadium, next season.
    And I also fancy the inform Swansea to deny Man City the 3pts on Sunday.

    I just hope that Sunderland and Norwich don’t win on Wednesday night, so that Newcastle will have something to fight for, against the Spuds on Sunday. ?

    1. louis van gash has put a very attacking line up.
      i fancy them for a sneeky win
      btw only bayern could announce mats hummels an renato sanches in one day

      we would probably milk elneny signing for a month lol

      1. I wouldn’t be surprised if they are waiting until after the Villa game on Sunday, to announce the signing of Sanchez ?
        All jokes aside.. I would be worried if Sanchez isn’t in the squad on Sunday. ?

        A ‘custard cream’ says a West Ham victory, tonight! ?

          1. Hahaha ? 1 and a half … take it or leave it? ??
            You see … I learned something from uncle Wenger! ?

    2. The hammers are currently whooping their a** at halftime……. Go figure!

      Happiness in the citeh camp…..Looks like Manure ain’t serious bout UCL spot……c’mon u hammers!

        1. Hahaha ?
          Yep!…. you are right…. ?
          West Ham have Got This! ? ? ?

          If only we could get live scenes, from Wenger’s yard,
          I bet, he has some of our lad’s around, watching the utd game, popping the champagne, vardy style, whilst singing ” I’m forever blowing bubbles”

      1. @NYG……….Hahaha………and what does the final whistle says?

        Good Testament to a FinaL home game at their historic Boleyn ground……will go down as one of their best matchdays in history

  2. By the looks of the u21 game, villa probably should have went with a few of these players this season. I thought we’d destroy them, after seeing Coquelin Cazorla Campbell and Chambers named in the line-up. Half time 1-1 if anyone hasn’t been informed. Willock with a nice strikers equalizer. The goal against came about because of a mistake, of course. One of those keeper blunders we used to see a couple of seasons back. Really hope we claim promotion spot, will look forward to seeing our wonder-kids versus the other big teams wonder-kids, so to properly judge. Young Guns …COYG.

    1. Arsenal have won the trophy. Back to the big leagues thanks to Mavididi Willock Bielik and Co. 3-1, MavIdidi scored a very well taken third goal, he scored the second as-well. Willock with two assists to add to his nicely taken goal. After watching the goalscorers, I think the two strikers could have surprised a few if thrown in when Giroud went off the boil. Bielik looks well ahead of his years, great physical stature and almost looks ready to grab an opportunity right now. He will play for the first team for a long time I’m sure of it. Adelaide looks a more mature player than most too, just needs to be more selfish when in the area. Looking forward to seeing some of these players become Arsenal first team stars, well done lads, great game and am looking forward to seeing more next season.

    2. @Trevor…..u can praise the boys for all u want, but they are not exactly what we need to compete at the EPL, UCL Level

      THEY ARE NOT READY……end of!

      1. he is trying to show that Wenger is God by talking about the boys and not the men who matters the most. he can also talk about the Arsenal ladies to show that we always win something every now and then

    3. and a Team with CazorLa, Coq,Chambers and Campbell……four First teamers………

      Nice try…. Using the C-word (Cheating) to gain promotion!

      Congratulations anyways…

  3. Breaking!! ???

    Arsenal planning move for French star after Wenger gets tip-off from French connections
    ARSENAL are reportedly tracking Lille striker Sehrou Guirassy.

    The 20-year-old joined Lille last summer after breaking through as an 18-year-old at Laval.
    He has spent the second half of this season on loan with Ligue 2 side Auxerre. 

    Wtf!…Is he related to Sanogo ? ?

    1. A French nobody. Yep, sounds like the Arsenal standard of the present day.
