How many points will Arsenal manage to collect in February?

Arsenal has a very light month in terms of fixtures, that is the consequence of no European football and elimination from all domestic cups.

There are just three league games to navigate and on the face of it, we should be collecting nine points but that is far from certain if January’s form is anything to go by.

We travel to Wolves on the 10th then we welcome Brentford on the 19th and finally, it is Wolves once again on the 24th.

Wolves will of course be tricky opponents but let’s not kid ourselves that we should not be beating them, we should, both home and away.

Bruno Lage’s men have been playing well but they got beat by Norwich on their own ground at the weekend in the FA Cup and yes, they had a very strong team and as usual, it was their inability to convert chances that cost them.

Brentford beat us at the start of the season but circumstances are very different today and if we cannot collect all the points at our own stadium against the Bee’s then we probably don’t deserve to finish top four.

There really cannot be any excuses now and if we do not pick up nine points from these three games, I for one will be very disappointed.

How many points do you expect Mikel Arteta’s men to pick up in February?

  1. Wolves losing to Norwich is very bad for Arsenal.
    Firstly it means Wolves now do not now have any extra games to play, secondly they have received a big wake up call and thirdly it shifts favouritism on to our shoulders. So for me a point at Molineux against a rival would be a good result but I fear the worst. We should beat both Brentford and Wolves at home. So 9-9 would be amazing, 7 from 9 would be decent and 6 would be acceptable. Man U losing to Middlesborough did us no favours. Westham appear to have too many games to play and Spurs have another FA Cup game and a catch up game. Will be a real battle till the end.

    1. 9 points for the taking. My Arsenal is good enough for all. Support, support. The team needs our positive energy, because we did not buy a CF, what’s wrong with Pepe in these last few games. We have a decent squad for this round, with livers and Chelsea to think hard about and then of course those fighting relegation. Arsenal forever.

    2. I am surprised, you are already making excuses for a manager who has spent more than the previous manager we sacked to get top 4.

  2. Since Lacazette/ Nketiah are distracted by their suitors and Arsenal decided not to sign a new CF, I predict we can only get maximum six points this month

  3. I’d say probably seven points but question WHYthis article specifies only February? Why do points gained or lost after Feb28 seem less important to this author?

    On the other hand – to give balance – I would not object to the old cliche “its all about the next game” , Wolves away, and think no further ahead, as that is RIGHT NOW most important of all.

    But my first point still pertains. So why, Ad Martin?

  4. Nine points for me
    The team we have now is not markedly different from the one the one that went on a good run up until December
    What we need is commitment from the team and avoiding the mistakes of penalties and red cards

  5. Wish I was that optimistic
    I think Arsenal will lose at wolves
    Beat Brentford at home
    Draw with wolves at home
    Only see 4 points in total myself

    1. Why February and not remaining season? OK ,the points we will get for the reminder of the season under Arteta with no striker signed and only if we tried hard is 18 points as we finish 10th on the table.

  6. Wolves are hard to break cuz of their disciplined structure so 2 from 6 wont be a surprise and brentford is a must win

  7. Haven’t seen enough consistency or intensity from the team to make any bold predictions. Based on their play this year, we could get 0 points or pick up all the points.

    Honestly, its the final standing that counts, don’t fall into the trap. For instance, Arsenal was the second best team in the 2nd half of last year; Result? Still 8th place.

    I hope to see a change in tactics, a steady move away from Arteaball and something akin to Arsenal football; direct attacking play, with some creativity and flair.

  8. Anything less than 6 points would be unacceptable. I was going to say 7 points but I think Wolves away may be tricky.

    I give Artedu their due though… knowing that we are goal shy in the the striker department they haven’t wavered on getting the right person seeing that we will only have one recognised first team striker at the end of the season.

    Live by the sword and die by the sword comes to mind.

    1. If we have Partey and Xaka for the 3 games in February, I’m sure we will nothing less than 7 points. But I must add, if these two players play each of these games for 90 minutes without injury (for Partey and red card for Xaka), we will definitely bag 7 or 9 points. Believe me, it’s not blind optimism. Having these two players on the field, we have leadership that give younger, energetic players extra motivation and assurance.

  9. If we have Partey and Xaka for the 3 games in February, I’m sure we will have nothing less than 7 points. But I must add, if these two players play each of these games for 90 minutes without injury (for Partey and red card for Xaka), we will definitely bag 7 or 9 points.

  10. Wolves (Away) –
    Wolves have proven to be a difficult opponent in the past few years for us to take 6 points from them over two legs. I fear for this game. So I will go with a draw as the best result we could get.

    Brentford (Home) –
    If not for anything, a revenge will be a must. Our boys have a point to prove. This is a must win.

    Wolves (Home) –
    We should be able to play better in our home. Nothing but a win would be a disappointment. The boys should be on full throttle to get a win. We just have to win this match to keep up with the top 4 race else it might be over.

    7 out of 9 points is pretty much realistic.
    6 out of 9 will not be too bad either, but anything less will not be good at all.

  11. Arsenal are good and they get there nine points. But the coach have to uses right prayers at the right time. I’m trying to say that the have to good combination at right time. He have to be careful in making some changes.

  12. I would think 7 out of 9 is realistic, Wolves away would be tricky. 6 would be acceptable but anything less would be very difficult for us to make top 4.
