The Premier League is edging towards half way through the season and the table is starting to take a clear shape. Some teams have struggled so reach their potential so far but the top six will still feel they can put in a challenge to be crowned champions at the end of the season. Chelsea currently top the table and are in the midst of an eleven game winning streak. All teams will be looking to match their winning mentality in order to catch them before the end of the season.
Arsenal have had a relatively positive first half of the season. They currently sit in fourth place, nine points behind the league leaders. The players will be kicking themselves as they could have been just three points behind Chelsea, however in the past week they have lost two games after taking the lead. Their 2-1 loss to Everton would have stung as they would have expected to get three points against Everton who haven’t really hit their form this season. The loss to Manchester City would have been disappointing as it allowed the Manchester side to leap frog them in the table.
Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have been the standout performers for Arsenal this season. In the attacking sense, Arsenal will always be a threat in the Premier League with these two in the team. At its core, the Arsenal back line is a strong one with a top keeper between the sticks. However, they have came unstuck in the past few fixtures – conceding in their last five fixtures in all competitions.
Through Christmas and New Years, Grande tipster Arsenal will feel that they can pick up maximum points in their next three fixtures. They have two home games coming up against West Brom and Crystal Palace, these are must win games and then they travel to Bournemouth for another game where they will probably need to pick up three points if they are going to keep pressure on the teams above them.
Arsenal are odds on to stay in the top four, priced at 3/10 with Bet on Brazil. They are a slight outsider price of 7/1 for them to go on and win the league this season. However, they should not be written off just yet. There is still a lot of football to play this season and the experienced management of Arsene Wenger could guide his current squad towards the top of the table.
