Next 4 League Matches are Winnable and Must Win for Arsenal by Rabiul
Arsenal had achieved a vital win against Cardiff. With the side severely injury ravaged (Ozil, Gibbs, Ramsey, Giroud), it was a commendable victory and took us back to the top. Now to look ahead for the next few matches.
Arsenal will be playing the following next 4 matches:
13th Jan: Aston Villa (Away)
18th Jan: Fulham (Home)
28th Jan: Southampton (Away)
2nd Feb: Crystal Palace (Home)
The next matches after these are the following:
8th Feb: Liverpool (Away)
12th Feb: Man Utd (Home)
22nd Feb: Sunderland (Home)
1st March: Stoke (Away)
Considering the recent form of the teams, the next 4 league matches are definitely winnable by Arsenal. And the fact that we will play Liverpool and Man Utd after these means we must win the next 4 matches. Add to the fact that Arsenal will play Spuds, Chelsea and Man City in the last half of March, these matches become that much more important. We need Man City and Chelsea to drop points and by keeping the pressure on by claiming maximum points, Arsenal can help this to happen. They will start to look at Arsenal and think, `they are not going to mess it up this time`.
Even with the injuries we have, it should be achievable. And we also expect some of the injured players getting back quickly (Ozil, Ramsey). So, there cannot be any excuse for not winning the next 4 matches. If it can be done, we will certainly create a reasonable distance between the other challengers since both Chelsea and Man City will play each other and Chelsea will play Man U and Man City will play Spuds within their next 4 matches. This is our chance to extend the lead as far as possible.
I truly believe this is the year for Arsenal to win the EPL trophy. Planning to celebrate in May. Winning those four games will set us up perfectly. Can we do it?
