Four – Closure

The gunners started this season on such a great high, but as the season has progressed we’ve seen the same arsenal most have become accustomed to for the past eight seasons.

Wenger’s men have seen their hold at the top of the league slip away over the last two months. Currently Liverpool (74 pts.)leads the league followed by Chelsea (72 pts.) and then Manchester City (70 pts.) who have two games in hand over the two teams above them. Arsenal have yet again found themselves in a battle not for the top spot in the league but fighting to maintain a top four spot in order to qualify for next season’s champions league.

Earlier today arsenal fell to the very team they could not afford to lose points against. Everton blanked arsenal 3-0 today at Goodison Park, narrowing the gunners lead over them to just one point. With the toffees having a game in hand the remaining fixtures will determine who secures the fourth champions league position.

Everton Have Manchester United, Manchester City and Southampton among their remaining fixtures, while Arsenal has the easier schedule. If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the prem, every game is unpredictable. Considering what was supposed to be one of Arsenal’s best seasons and one of Wenger’s greatest achievements, Arsenal has again falling into the same scenario we’ve seen. Fans again are potentially looking at a trophy-less season (providing the team doesn’t beat Wigan Athletic in the FA cup final) and another fourth place finish.

  1. Yeah, Everton came to play and Arsenal was still out getting tea and croissants. The Premier League this season has been very good. I can’t wait to find out who’s going to win. I think DC United might take the championship this year.

    1. Every game has been important from top of the league to the bottom. I stopped watching the game after 2-0 .My money is on Liverpool to win. I hope DC united can win but i’m not holding my breath they’re after all a DC sports team lol
