Leicester City deservedly won at Manchester City yesterday, taking all 3 points and comfortably winning 3-1. A surprising result perhaps, but one that puts Leicester City firmly in the driving seat.
The result puts them an amazing 8 points clear of Arsenal, who sit in 4th place behind Leicester City, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur. A win against Bournemouth (which is by no means a given) would put us 5 points behind the league leaders, joint on 48 points with Manchester City.
But where will Arsenal finish this season?
Our form of late (essentially in 2016) has been a shambles with draws against Southampton, Stoke and Liverpool alongside a defeat to Chelsea – which has given us 3 points from a possible 12. Dropping 9 points at this stage of the season is just indicative of a team which has basically bottled it.
Arsenal are in a slump and need to snap out of it as soon as possible. Losing further ground to a side which is full of confidence, goals and ability is something we can’t really contemplate if we actually want to compete for the Premier League title, as opposed to just finishing 4th like we usually do.
Do you think we can get our act together and mount a real challenge with only 14 games remaining? Or have we dropped to many points to challenge the teams above us?
