So Arsenal drop points in the “title race” yet again.
I put title race in quotations because it’s no longer a title race for us.
Since the new year we’ve completely stalled. We started 2016 with a stuttering victory at home against Newcastle which ended 1-0 – and it was a game we could have lost without Petr Cech’s heroics.
Our results in the Premier League in 2016 are as follows:
Newcastle (H) 1-0
Liverpool (A) 3-3
Stoke City (A) 0-0
Chelsea (H) 0-1
Southampton (H) 0-0
From a possible 15 points, we’ve managed to pick up 8. We’ve dropped 7 points.
And from our last 4 Premier League games, we’ve won 3 points from a possible 12.
Our form is atrocious and apart from the Liverpool game (in patches), our performances have been well below par.
Arsene Wenger has failed to get his players mentally prepared for a vital part of the season, and at this rate 4th place in the Premier League is going to be a struggle.
