The punters drinking inside the Football Transfer Tavern this evening are questioning whether there is any other team capable of going from despair against Olympiakos last Tuesday to absolute jubilation against Manchester United in just a couple of days like Arsenal can?
So often over recent years, we’ve seen the sublime to the ridiculous and vice versa for Arsene Wenger’s men who everybody knows are capable of producing the kind of scintillating football we saw in the first twenty minuets against Manchester United yesterday afternoon where they blew Louis van Gaal’s side away.
Naturally, many of our resident Gooners are daring to dream yet again that this could be their year in the Premier League with the title race well and truly wide open right now.
The most pleasing aspect of yesterday’s handsome win over the Red Devils was that Arsenal locked the game down after going 3-0 up and this is incredibly pleasing for Gunners fans who have of course seen their club throw away 3-0 and 4-0 leads away to the likes of Anderlecht and Newcastle United in the past.
Doing all of their attacking in the first half and then allowing themselves to press United on the counter in the second, you couldn’t help but be impressed with the way Arsene Wenger’s men responded, especially given the fact the club and manager received a tough time of it from their own fans, the media and the press post Olympiakos.
With the umpteenth wave of enthusiasm sweeping around the bar where our Gooners are concerned (they’ll probably be deflated again sometime soon!), we’ve devised five reasons why Arsenal can go on to win the Premier League come May time.
