Arsenal

The Last 5 Games…

Manchester United’s failure to beat Blackburn yesterday paved the way for Arsenal to make an assault on the Premier League title. Arsenal are currently three points behind leaders Chelsea and two points behind United, with a game in hand. Injuries have already played a part, with Fabregas, Gallas and Arshavin all out for the remaining games. The rumoured return of Robin Van Persie from injury can only help Arsenal, although it remains to be seen how much he will contribute to their run-in. Here are my predictions on how Arsenal will fare in their last 5 games.

14 April – v Tottenham (A)

This is a key game for both sides, as Arsenal chase the title and Spurs chase fourth place and a Champions League place. Tottenham will be devastated after their loss to Portsmouth in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday but will want to beat their rivals in the North London derby. Bear in mind that Arsenal are undefeated in the last 8 league games and beat Spurs 3-0 in the last encounter between the two sides.

Prediction: It’s going to be a tight game, so I’m going to predict a draw.

18 April – Wigan (A)

Wigan are right back in the relegation dogfight and are only 4 points off the relegation zone. This game is crucial for them but even though they are at home, I can’t see them causing Arsenal any problems.

Prediction: Arsenal win

24 April – Man City (H)

This is a key game. Arsenal may be formidable at the Emirates, but City have the ability to win key games away from home, as they did when they demolished Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this year. City beat Arsenal at Eastlands earlier this season and this will be a close game this time round.

Prediction: Draw

1 May – Blackburn (A)

Arsenal should have no problems disposing of Blackburn, but then again Man United should have beat them yesterday as well.

Prediction: Arsenal win

9 May – Fulham (H)

Obviously Arsenal need to rely on Chelsea and even United to slip up again if they want to win the Premiership this season. But if it does all come down to this game, I can see Arsenal beating Fulham, especially as they play them at the Emirates.

Prediction: Arsenal win
