Arsenal will be pleased with their midweek result as they managed to get the better of Cardiff City at the Emirates, thanks to goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
The Gunners still find themselves battling Chelsea for a place in the top four, with Unai Emery’s side currently sitting in fourth position at this moment time.
Indeed, February could turn out to be an important month for the North London club as they have the opportunity to cement a top four place as well as a two-legged tie in the Europa League against BATE Borisov.
With that in mind, here is the dream February for Arsenal…
UNAI EMERY SILENCES THE ETIHAD
Arsenal will travel to the Etihad to face Manchester City tomorrow. The Citizens will be desperate to bounce back after their midweek defeat against Newcastle United, with their sights set on hunting down Liverpool.
However, the Gunners have aspirations of their own, with a top four spot being the main aim from here on in.
So, Emery can secure a perfect start to the month of February by silencing the Etihad, which would be a big statement for Arsenal to make, and it would fill them with the confidence to kick on in the coming weeks.
DENIS SUAREZ ESTABLISHES HIMSELF AS A STAR
Arsenal managed to secure a loan deal for Denis Suarez on Deadline Day.
The Spaniard has the potential to become a star but he just wasn’t provided with enough opportunities during his time at Barcelona, so the Gunners will be hoping to get the best out of him at the Emirates.
Suarez is the type of player who could completely transform Arsenal’s midfield with the ability to have a positive impact in the final third, so he could prove to be the difference in the race for a top four spot.
