Wenger optimistic on Arsenal’s title chances

Arsenal didn’t get into full flow last season until after the New Year when we were already too far behind Chelsea to make an impact, but now it is only the end of October and the Gunners are are already in flying form. They are joint top on points in the League and are aiming for the fifth win on the bounce this afternoon at Swansea.

“It is very tight,” said Wenger. “That’s why every game is a big challenge. First of all, because it’s very tight at the top, but also because of the quality of the teams you face. You always need to be at your best.

“At the moment what you see in every season is teams you expect to be there at the top are there. One or two surprising teams are also always at the top every year after 10 games. This year the surprise packages are Leicester and Crystal Palace. I expected Crystal Palace to fight up there but Leicester were less expected. They have continued their run from the end of last season.”

“Everton was a very important game for us on that front,” Wenger continued, “because after the Bayern game, to be straight away capable of winning a big game, shows that the team is focused, resolute and has the capability of keeping the concentration at a high level. That makes me quite optimistic.”

I personally will be more optimistic after we get all three points at Norwich. Man City should easily dispose of Norwich, but United have got a difficult task at flying Crystal Palace so fingers crossed we may open up a gap on them today. We simply don’t care about Chelsea v Liverpool as neither of them are contenders this season…

Come On You Gunners!

    1. We need to look out for Ayew..he likes to drift to the centre just like Ramsey..when the ball is played in the 6 yard box he is always there to meet it..also Campbell on the right suits us just fine coz he has excellent work rate…moreover playing with the likes of Ozil,Cazorla and Sanchez will definitely benefit him..

  1. Don’t forget West Ham ?
    It’s not as if anyone expected them to be right up there!

    It’s not as if wenger was going to be pessimistic,
    was he? ?
    I believe in the quality and stability of my wage packet ?
    Cough! ….. I mean team!

    Anyways, I hope that Giroud continues to show his willingness to fight for the team and doesn’t go back to being a lamp post just because Walcott is out for 6-8 weeks!

  2. We have got to remain consistent and keep on racking up the 3points to keep up the pressure on man city towards our title challenge! Coyg!

  3. Hope for a solid performance today ahead of Spuds next week.
    Any good free sites to stream game?

    Please let me know

  4. 3 points is a must today..we can’t play catch up with City/United and wait for them to drop points again..Let’s get the 3 points and stay in the title race.

  5. OT really hoping Pool beat the Chavs today and Moaninho gets sacked..icing on the cake would be Moaninho being appointed manager at Villa..lol..
