It is turning out to be a season to forget for Arsenal and it also follows on from a disappointing 8th placed finish last season. The club now really needs to progress and get back to pushing for not only Champions league football but for the Premier league title, where at present, they are absolutely miles off. You only have to look here for example, where punters have been playing on casinos and the betting sites that make Arsenal huge odds just to get into the top four, which really shows where Arsenal are at present. They have clearly dropped off massively, so let’s hope improvements are made and the club can push back up the Premier league table.
Arsenal are currently down in 11th and have picked up just 31 points from their 23 matches played. They have also really dropped off form in recent weeks, that has included a draw and then two consecutive defeats. The draw coming at home against Man United. This turned out to be 0-0 and was actually a good point to take away, based on the fact that United are pushing for the title. Arsenal will also feel they could have got more out of the game, but this continued their example of very inconsistent form.
Following a draw to United, Arsenal then travelled to take on Wolves and were hoping to return with a victory. Arsenal of course saw two red cards, with David Luiz and Bernd Leno being sent off. That pretty much left them with a huge task and it ultimately was too much, with the match finishing 2-1. Pepe had put Arsenal ahead, but Wolves draw level and took the lead in a matter of minutes between each side of half-time. It was another tough defeat for Arsenal.
Next up for Arsenal was an away trip to take on Aston Villa and a game they expected to win, despite Villa going through an impressive season to date. Ollie Watkins put Villa ahead after two minutes and despite Arsenal controlling the possession, that turned out to be the only goal of the game, with the match finishing 1-0. It was another annoying defeat for the team.
Arsenal will now be looking to improve upon their form and really start winning some matches, with Leeds up next at home. Can Arsenal improve a push for European football qualification this season?
