Arsenal have gone fighting for the Premier League title to fighting for fourth place in a way that only the Gunners could do. The side from north London have done a great job of attempting to lose their position in the Champions League spots for next season.
Yesterday’s 1-1 draw at home against Crystal Palace was indicative of how the team from north London can produce inexplicably poor displays. Palace produced a resilient display, but in truth they are struggling near the bottom of the table and are the sort team Arsenal should be beating.

Arsenal’s last two performances in the Premier League have illustrated what the Gunners can do on their day, albeit against opposition that performed very poorly. Yesterday’s 4-0 victory over Watford comprised all that is good about Arsenal.
Alexis Sanchez looked back to near his best, young winger Alex Iwobi impressed yet again and Hector Bellerin impressed at full-back.
History repeating itself
Every season in recent history Arsenal have done the same thing. They have went through a run of good form, but either too early in the season to win the league or late. Unfortunately every season the team tends to fall apart for a period as well and again that has happened again. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal’s Premier League title bid looks to be faltering, but Brazilian centre-back Gabriel is still optimistic about his team’s chances of winning the title this season.
The former-Villarreal defender told the Standard: “We have a great chance to be champions this season,”
”However, we went through a period of bad form and it left us behind Leicester, who are having a great season.
“But we do not throw in the towel and we can make a difference in the battles we have to fight for the Premier League title.” .......Read more here.....

Arsenal’s shock exit at the hands of Watford on Sunday leaves the Gunners with little to play for this season. Arsene Wenger’s team heads to Barcelona on Wednesday night for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
Mission Impossible for Gunners
The Gunners are 2-0 down from the first leg at the Emirates Stadium and facing an almost impossible task to get through to the last-8, with the European giants now 37 games unbeaten in all competitions.
Drawing the European champions was always the worse draw Arsenal could have got, but after recent results a win against the European champions seems like a result even Tom Cruise would not be able to pull-off. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal are through the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, after the Gunners defeated Championship Hull City 4-0 at the KC Stadium on Tuesday night. In truth the win has done little to appease the growing band of supporters who want a change of manager.
This time is different
People will say we have been here before in the past with supporters calling for Arsene Wenger’s head and they would be right. We have been here before, but that was when the Gunners were not winning the title against the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal travels to Hull’s KC Stadium on Tuesday night for the FA Cup fifth round replay with the holders hoping to avoid a shock exit. The first game at the Emirates Stadium finished goalless, mainly due to a superb goalkeeping display from Swiss international Eldin Jakupovic.
The Tigers form has dipped slightly in the last few weeks and Steve Bruce’s team have fallen to third place in the Championship table, despite being top when the two sides last met. .......Read more here.....

Tottenham and Arsenal drew 2-2 at White Hart Lane on Saturday in an entertaining derby that did neither club any favours in the Premier League title race.
The first attempt on goal of the game arrived on five minutes, as Gunners stand-in ‘keeper David Ospina produced a comfortable save from Harry Kane. Soon afterwards Kane had another attempt on goal but could only fire straight at Ospina.
Just a minute later and Kane makes it a hat-trick of missed chances, as he fired a long-range effort at goal deflected over the bar. The resulting corner came to nothing. .......Read more here.....

Tottenham host Arsenal at White Hart Lane on Saturday lunchtime in arguably the biggest north London derby in the history of the Premier League.
Both teams are in the race for the Premier League title and this clash could be decisive in who comes out on top between the pair.
Spurs will start the game three points behind league leaders Leicester and will go top of the table with a victory in this one. However, their confidence may have taken a hit from a 1-0 defeat last time out at West Ham. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal’s chances of winning the Premier League seem to be slipping away after a 2-1 home defeat against bogey team Swansea on Wednesday night. The loss leaves the Gunners trailing league leaders Leicester by six points with a trip to north London rivals Tottenham looming on Saturday.
A defeat against Spurs could be a fatal blow to Arsene Wenger’s sides hopes of winning the Premier League this season, despite a number of the so called big clubs struggling in the top-flight this season.
Is Arsene Wenger’s job on the line? .......Read more here.....

Arsenal host Swansea at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday with the hosts desperate for a victory in the Premier League title race.
The Gunners are now five points behind league leaders Leicester at the weekend, after the Gunners suffered a 3-2 defeat at Manchester United. Goals from Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil were not enough to yield the north London side anything from their trip to Manchester.
Arsenal are now three points behind Tottenham in the Premier League as well, so this is a must win game for the Gunners. However, the side from north London do not have a good record against Swansea at the Emirates Stadium, having one of the four meetings with the Swansea on home soil. .......Read more here.....
