Arsenal seem to be getting their form back. Unluckily, it’s a little bit too late in the seasons because with few games remaining it would be hard to catch up with the league leaders. Unless some form of miracle happens and the top 3 teams lose points drastically then they should forget the title race.
I think Wenger has already given up on the title race because the top 3 teams are in serious contention for the title, especially Liverpool. After their massive wins over ‘the Red devils’ and Aston Villa, Liverpool have made a statement that the race is still on till the end. Back to Arsenal, after a grueling penalty shootout win against Roma followed by thrashing Blackburn 4-0 and thumping Newcastle 3-1, it seems that Arsenal have refocused and are ready at least to get a piece of silverware. Currently they are still in contention of the FA cup and the UEFA Champions League. If they keep up with this kind of play then they are bound to come out with some silverware.
One of the major impacts that has helped Arsenal is the acquisition of the Russian midfielder, Andrei Arshavin. He has taken a very short time to adjust to the English premier league, which for many is the toughest league in the world. He has been able to adjust accordingly and is already scoring splendid goals and setting up the strikers. This acquisition had to be done after an injury to Cesc Fabregas was clearly being felt in the Arsenal midfield. Also, the return of Theo Walcott and Eduardo have helped greatly. Although Eduardo has not had much play in the English premier league games, he has certainly helped the team in the FA cup when on his first return game scored 2 goals.
The upcoming month will be a difficult one for Arsenal as they have a UEFA Champions league quarter final match against Villareal (which I think would be bearable for them) followed by a premier league march against both Liverpool and Chelsea and also FA cup semi-final against Chelsea. The good news for them is that their many injury bound players will be returning. The likes of Cesc Fabregas and long time player Tomas Rosicky, including Walcott and Eduardo, will be back in this month.
