As we all know Arsenal have been in superb form of late. The Gunners are in fact rated as the joint-best team from any of the top five European leagues, having won their last seven consecutive games.
Only Serie A side Lazio have taken the same amount of points as the Gunners in the same period. However, the Italian side have a goal difference that is three better than the Gunners, so technically they are above the Gunners in the form charts.
The Gunners league form puts them above the likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid and even current Premier League leaders Chelsea.
The Gunners seven match winning streak in the Premier League has been impressive and Saturday’s 4-1 victory over Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium was the most eye-catching. The win showed just how dangerous the Gunners are going forward when on song, even against decent opposition.
French international striker Olivier Giroud also continued his impressive goalscoring streak, as he scored his seventh goal in his last six Premier League appearances and also scored in the sixth consecutive league game.
The recent run of good form has given the Gunners a slim chance of challenging league leaders Chelsea for the Premier League title this season. Jose Mourinho’s side are still seven points clear of the Gunners with a game in-hand.
Manchester City had the chance to move back above Arsenal into second place on Monday night, but were defeated 2-1 at Crystal Palace, which was a boost for Arsene Wenger’s sides chances of claiming a place in the top two of the Premier League this season.
A top two or even three finish would help the Gunners avoid the annual Champions League play-off, or qualification round that comes prior to the group stages. Wenger’s side always win through the qualifiers, but it would be easier for the Gunners preparation for next season if they did not have the qualifier at the beginning of the campaign.
Arsenal’s chances of winning the Premier League title look slim and the Gunners are now odds of 20/1 to win the title this season, which makes them second favourites after City’s slip-up on Monday night.
The Gunners recent form has been encouraging of late, but the title looks like too much of a stretch this season. However if the Gunners can finish the season in a positive manner then maybe they can take that form into next season and Arsene Wenger’s team will have a realistic chance of the title next season.
Can Arsenal maintain their impressive form until the end of the season?
