Arsenal recently managed to win four matches on the bounce in the Premier league, which puts them as once again the favourites to finish in the top four alongside Chelsea. Arsenal were in danger of missing out on the Champions League football next season. This was due to the poor form of the team coupled with the impressive form of their rivals Tottenham. However, the situation has totally reversed in the past few weeks as Arsenal have been quite brilliant. They have managed to win the fourth consecutive game in the league during the weekend.
The 3-1 win over Norwich means that Arsenal have registered four successive victories. Their previous successes came against Swansea, Reading, and West Brom. Arsenal were widely adjudged to have the easier fixture list going into the final few months of the campaign. The absence of cup competitions meant that Arsenal could fully focus on finishing in the top four unlike Chelsea and Tottenham, who had the Europa league in mind. Arsenal can put some distance between them and their rivals if the managed another league win when they face Everton on Tuesday night.
This will be one of the toughest matches in the final few weeks of the campaign, but it could also help Arsenal put a distance between them and Everton. “We have some offensive quality on the bench at home, so once you get the team under pressure it is very helpful. What’s important is to get to the top four we need a consistent run – let’s focus on that. If we keep the cohesion and the consistency we will be there. Let’s not focus too much on the placing in the league. Let’s focus on the way we want to behave and the way we want to play,” said Wenger after the Norwich encounter.
