Arsenal are truly having a fantastic season. At the start of the season several football commentators thought they would suffer and could even finish outside the top four in the English Premier League but manager Arsene Wenger was to have none of it. 22 matches into the season and the Gunners are second in the table and second only because of an inferior goal difference.
In an interview to Arsenal TV, as quoted here by Goal.com, Wenger is confident that the team he has build will carry on until the end of the season with an undying hunger and passion for football. Wenger underlines his team’s spirit and unity in seeing them through.
There is a real hunger and we are all on the same wavelength. We have the same love for the game, and that drives you on. You feel there is a potential in the side and that you want to win, but they want to win as well. We have taken a step forwards, because at this period of last season they were 16 or 17 points behind the leader. This year after 21 games, we were two points in front. hat must give us belief, first of all that we have come higher up because Liverpool have invested, Manchester United have invested, Chelsea have invested as always, and we still have made up the ground and are in front of them. hat makes me believe we can win trophies at the end of the season.
Arsenal have been consistent throughout so far this season and although a few of the players have been injured at times, the replacements have coped well with the demands of maintaining the winning mentality. But Manchester United have started to gather form at just the right time. So could Arsenal defy the Red Devils and regain the Premiership title?
