Large numbers of fans are disappointed at The Gunners in the reason, but the situation could be going to change. It have suffered many poor losses throughout the season meaning they are now sitting in fifth position, which would be below their expectations. However the victory against Manchester City at the weekend could inspire a turn-around in fortunes for the rest of their campaign.
One of the reasons that Arsenal have been held back so much this year has been due to injuries. Key players such as Ozil, Ramsey, Giroud, Koscielny, Walcott and Wilshere have all suffered long term injuries this season, which has placed more pressure on less regular first team players to perform.
A lot of the frustration vented by the Arsenal supporters has been directed towards Arsene Wenger for his team selection and play style. However he has never really had a fully fit squad to work with at all this season.
They have relied heavily on new summer signing, Alexis Sanchez, who has undoubtedly been their best player so far with 12 goals and 7 assists. However with Ramsey, Walcott and Giroud all recently returning to the side as well as Ozil, who is due back soon, they could help spur their team back into the title race.
Arsenal currently sit 13 points behind league leaders Chelsea but they have shown before that when fully fit, they can be a team who are very hard to stop. Furthermore Chelsea appear to be a lot more vulnerable than what they were at the start of the season. And Arsenal’s road going further is tough.
