Five things that need to happen for Arsenal to win the title
Break the curse
The aforementioned annual stumble in November or February, sometimes both, is usually what throws a spanner in the works for Arsenal’s charge. Here, the Gunners hit a run of poor form or experience one negative result that changes everything.
After the international break, Arsenal face Manchester United in the Premier League, Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League and Bournemouth, again in the league, which they will need to be at their best to navigate through, but it’s February that will provide the toughest test.
Chelsea, Hull, a Round of 16 Champions League clash, the FA Cup 5th round and Southampton, or the EFL Cup final, await Arsenal that month. Battling on three, or even four, fronts will really test the depth Arsenal boast.
