25 games down and the question on every Arsenal fans mind, besides – will they obtain a top four finish, is – will there be a trophy coming to The Emirates this season?
With inconsistency still an issue for The Gunners in the Premier League and a shock exit in the Capital One Cup to Bradford City two months ago, this season could still bring some silverware – but it’s a big ask.
Defeats to the ‘big guns’ in the league, due to some silly defensive errors, have stamped doubts in the minds of several fans and has left Arsenal in sixth place, behind the two Manchester clubs, Chelsea, Tottenham and even Everton.
Arsenal are still actively present in the Champions League and FA Cup, but fears of a repetition of the Capital One Cup drama and inconsistency in the Premier League may arise, as it has done in the past.
In the Champions League, Arsenal face last years finalist, Bayern Munich, in the Round of 16, a tie that will test Arsene Wenger’s sides competency.
In the FA Cup they face Blackburn Rovers, which should be a walk over for The Gunners but recent plays show that they tend to surprise their fans against lower oppositions – Bradford being a prime example.
Although recent defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea, coupled with a comeback draw against Liverpool, Arsenal have produced some brilliant performances as of late, especially in the second half of games. If they manage to keep up their form and performances, a trophy this season is very much possible, even the Champions League!
