Arsenal are now looking like a side who is all set to win the Premier League this season. The Gunners are currently sitting on top of the League table. They are five points clear of Manchester City with only 11 remaining games this season. Furthermore Arsenal increased the gap between them and Manchester City with their recent 3-0 win against Fulham. The Gunners close in to win the Premier League title for the first time since 2004. Journalist Paul Brown believes that if Arsenal manages to win the title this season, it will reduce some of fan’s harsh feelings regarding Kroenke. The American took over the club back in 2011. Fans have been feeling antipathy towards the owners in recent times. If the Gunners win the league title this season, the fans might be appeased for a bit.
Arsenal have been doing extremely well so far this season
Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge thinks it’s ‘scary’ how impressive Arsenal have been so far this season. They look like they could very well win the league this season. With only 11 games remaining, Arsenal will have to stay focused and take one game at a time. Bridges shared his thoughts on the Gunners, “It’s actually scary how good they’ve been from the start of the season and they’ve just carried this on. I think they’re going to win the title. Even little things like scoring so late against Bournemouth in the 97th minute. Casemiro being banned for their game, Palhinha being banned on Sunday and Willian picking up a knock.” He further went on, “Little things are going their way, but they’re playing well at the same time. They’re being consistent. They’re playing for 97 minutes, like at Villa the other week when Martinez scored that own goal.
“To win leagues, things do have to go your way as well, and they are, but they are playing like they are on course to win the league.”
Arsenal are also currently playing in the Europa League as well. So the Gunners could potentially bring home two trophies this season. However the key factor for them remains is to be focused. They cannot let their ambitions get to their head as that would not end up well them.
