Well, sort of.

Although Arsenal boss did say that today’s game against Leicester is a must-win, he also added that the team go into every game with one goal – to win the match.

A look at the rivals 0

While Arsenal’s game against Sheffield United may be the most important thing for the club today, it’s also important to take a look around and see how their rivals fared during their own games. It’s never too early to consider the battle for the top four to be just that: a battle. Nobody really knows who is going to be seriously involved in the race for quite some time, but it’s obvious to see who is going to be mixing it up at the top, so we may as well not try and get around that fact.

Wolves (A)

Assuming Wolves aren’t in the latter stages of the Europa League at this point, this game could be dangerous. The last time Arsenal went to Molineux they were thoroughly beaten by a Wolves side that, simply put, were much better than them. Will the same thing happen again? Don’t be surprised.

Leicester (H)

Leicester City are a tricky side to deal with, but even with that being the case, there shouldn’t be any kind of overwhelming worry regarding what they’re capable of – especially if Brendan Rodgers is still at the helm. That may seem and sound a little bit harsh, but they just don’t strike us as an intimidating side.

Arsenal’s worst Premier League losses – Part 2 0

West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

Just pitiful. There was no real fight and no real desire, to the point where we were left to wonder whether or not these players even want to secure Champions League football in the first place. The Hammers were a decent side this season but their aspirations weren’t nearly as high as Arsenal’s, and worse yet, the game so quickly after the half time interval. They just seemed to switch off and when you do that at such a high level like this, you’re obviously going to be punished.

Leicester 3-0 Arsenal

Arsenal were just flat, and it was clear to see their passion for the top four race was all but gone. The players were tired, the fans were fed up, and Emery just didn’t have an answer to it. Brendan Rodgers’ momentum since arriving at Leicester quite clearly played a pretty significant role in this game, because the Foxes were just firing on all cylinders. Arsenal just couldn’t keep up with them in any way, shape or form, and that’s a little bit embarrassing when you think about where these two sides were a decade or so ago.

Even if the middle of a pretty embarrassing defeat, there’s always time to take a step back and analyse the positives – or, at least, that’s what some folks would like you to believe. In reality it takes a few days to really reflect and think about what has happened, especially when you play at a level like the Premier League. Case in point: Arsenal fans would’ve understandably been incredibly unhappy about the manner in which they lost to Leicester City at the weekend, but in the end, there were a few positives to take away from the result.

Have Arsenal really made progress under Unai Emery? 0

As we all now know, Arsenal suffered a 3-0 defeat at Leicester On Sunday afternoon. The defeat was almost inevitable mainly due to the Gunners woeful away form this season. What looked like a comfortable end to the season has turned into a nightmare.

Prior to the Leicester game, Emery claimed that the team has progressed from last season. In all honesty, earlier in the season, I believed the team had progressed. However, I do not want to sound fickle, but the last few weeks have made me question whether the team has truly progressed under Emery.

Leicester v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

On Sunday lunchtime, Arsenal travels to the Midlands to face Leicester at the King Power Stadium in a potentially vital game for the Gunners.

Leicester’s recent Premier League form has been inconsistent, as the Foxes have taken just one point from games with Newcastle and last time out. Brendan Rodgers side had won their previous four league matches to keep themselves in with a chance of finishing in seventh place.

As it stands the Foxes are tenth-place in the table, three points off seventh place, which may be enough to secure Europa League qualification for next season.

The reverse fixtures – Part 2 0

Arsenal 1-1 Wolves

Arsenal were fortunate to come away with anything from this game, which kind of tells you all that you need to know about how good Wolverhampton Wanderers have been this season. They’ve taken every single game in their stride, putting on a football clinic against the big boys in the process.

Arsenal 3-1 Leicester

Despite going behind in this one it always felt like Arsenal were going to score as the game went on, and that’s what happened. They just seem to be able to take over at the Emirates in ways that they can’t do away from home, which is something they need to watch out for when they travel to the King Power for the reverse fixture.

The end of the season is almost upon us, and there’s still a lot left to be resolved – especially for Arsenal. In addition to their Europa League quarter final which is coming up sooner than most of us realise, they’re also in a great position to finish in the top four of the Premier League. As we all know that’ll mean that they enter the UEFA Champions League once again, which many considered to be the end goal for Unai Emery in his first season in charge.
