Our season so far has unquestionably been disappointing, and despite currently sitting fourth in the Premier League, our campaign already looks in danger of being derailed.
We face Man United in the Premier League at The Emirates on Sunday though, and it’s a fantastic chance to get our season back on track. Make your predictions and get a betway free bet.
We could already be out of the Champions League after successive defeats against Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos, especially with back to back fixtures against Bayern Munich coming up. While qualification isn’t out of reach, we’ve certainly given ourselves a mountain to climb, and our erratic form could either see us out of Europe completely or demoted to the Europa League.
This means we really have to focus on the Premier League, starting with Manchester United this weekend. Although we’d need other results to go our way, a victory over Louis van Gaal’s side could see us topple them and take top spot – although given their superior goal difference we’d need a convincing win.
Bowing out of Europe would obviously be hugely disappointing, but would Arsenal fans trade that for a Premier League title? I’m inclined to say yes.
The Champions League is unquestionably the big one, but we don’t look ready to mount a serious challenge at the moment. Things are different in the Premier League, and we’ve seen on a number of occasions that anything can happen.
- Arsenal must outmanoeuvre Galatasaray to win race for £2m ‘bargain’ transfer
- Arsenal reportedly set to sign free agent after impressive trial
- Arsenal have ‘concrete interest’ in signing Bayern Munich II star
Arsenal transfer news
Reigning champions Chelsea are in shocking form, and don’t look even close to mounting another challenge. Manchester United and Manchester City look our closest rivals, but neither team looks infallible. Hopefully we get the win this weekend, and it really kick starts our Premier League campaign.
