Arsenal’s resurgence continued this week with a well fought, scrappy, old fashioned 1-0 win away at Everton that lifted them above fierce rivals and into the Premier League top three. The Gunners have enjoyed a miraculous renaissance since beating the old enemy at the end of February winning seven games in a row and putting themselves back on course for automatic qualification to next season’s Champions League. Confidence is booming inside the walls of the Emirates Stadium with Arsene Wenger delivering a huge back hand to the critics who tipped him for the sack after disastrous start to the campaign.
This week at FFC discussion has arose over Wenger’s summer transfer targets and whether two of Belgiums hottest prospects will end up plying their trade in North London next season….alongside a veteran Italian legend.

“We are always confident [of staying third], especially if we keep winning games as we are. But we won’t be looking at Tottenham, only ourselves. That’s the important thing for us, not what other clubs are doing.
“Yes [Arsenal are favourites to finish third], we just have to keep the focus on our own performance. At the moment we have had some good results against some difficult teams. We have shown good mentality.” Thomas Vermaelen on Arsenal’s fight for third spot
