Arsenal still odds of 11/8 for top-four finish despite good run of form 0

Posted on October 02, 2017 by David Nugent

A month can make a hell of a lot of difference in a football’s team’s fortunes. Arsenal are one of those teams that tend to go on streaky runs of form. The majority of recent reasons those runs of form have been enough to give the Gunners top-four finishes.

However, a late surge last season towards the top four spots was not quite enough to secure a Champions League spot for this season. Arsenal head into the international break on a positive note after Sunday’s comfortable 2-0 win over Brighton at the Emirates Stadium.

Far more positive mood around the club

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal recorded a comfortable 2-0 win over Brighton at the Emirates Stadium, with goals from Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi enough to give the Gunners three points.

Arsenal hit the front straight away and came close to taking the lead in the first two minutes. French striker Alexandre Lacazette smashed an effort from long-range against Mat Ryan’s post.

The visitors offered their first real threat on five minutes. Pascal Gross fired in a free kick, which saw Izzy Brown glance towards goal, but wide of Petr Cech’s left post. Arsenal started to dominate possession and Alexis Sanchez saw a low effort saved comfortably by Ryan.

Arsenal will be looking to continue their recent good form when they host Brighton at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners have hit form of late after an unconvincing start to the season. Arsene Wenger’s team have now recorded five wins and a draw in all competitions. Last time out the team from north London defeated Belarusian side BATE Borisov 4-2 in the Europa League.

The home side are now three games unbeaten in the top-flight, having recorded two wins and a draw, keeping clean sheets in all three games.

Three wins on the bounce are enough of a guarantee that our boys will be confident enough heading into the Brighton clash this weekend.

Arsenal play host to the Premier League newcomers on Sunday afternoon hoping to extend their winning run and move up the ladder from the seventh place they currently occupy.

Wenger’s men haven’t had the best of starts to their new campaign but improvement is visible and evident despite some remaining inconsistencies.

A win over Brighton could possibly push our boys into the top four if other results go our way and it’s not very difficult to see the importance behind grabbing all three points on Sunday.

Talented Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom has joined Sky Bet Championship leaders Brighton on loan until the end of the season, it has been confirmed.

The 21-year-old Gunners talent has seen his first-team opportunities at Arsenal significantly limited as the England Under-21 international has so far made only one start and nine substitute appearances for Arsene Wenger’s team.

The French manager holds the striker in high regard however and has sanctioned another loan spell to aid Akpom’s development.

Can Serge Gnabry fulfil his potential at Arsenal? 2

In the summer Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger decided to loan out highly-rated German midfielder Serge Gnabry. A temporary move to Premier League West Brom seemed like an ideal move for the youngster.

Lack of action

The Baggies are a good stable top-flight team, where he should have been able to gain first team experience in the Premier League. However, he has struggled for game time with the Baggies and boss Tony Pulis claimed earlier this season that he felt Gnabry was not ready for the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger has decided to recall Serge Gnabry from West Brom after the highly rated German failed to make a big impact on the Premier League with Tony Pulis’ team.

Gnabry signed for the Baggies last August, but was never given a chance during five months with the club and was restricted to just 12 minutes of league football.

Talented 20-year-old winger broke into the Arsenal fold in the 2013/14 season and was regarded as one of the most promising young footballer in European football.

Arsenal’s 3-2 FA Cup win at Brighton in the FA Cup fourth round was inspired by two players who have only relatively recently returned to first team action. England winger Theo Walcott opened the scoring, while German international Mesut Ozil scored the Gunners second goal.

Game Time

As we all know both these players have incredible ability to have an impact for the Gunners. Ozil was starting his first game since returning from injury and looked much fitter than before his injury.
