The Gunners’ title dreams are fading fast, yet there’s at least one member of their squad who hasn’t given up yet. Gael Clichy has been one of the most outstanding performers for Arsenal this season and, according to Sky Sports, the French defender can see no reason why his team cannot have a change in fortunes and pip Manchester United and Chelsea at the post. Apart from failing to win any of their past five league matches…
“We may have lost against Chelsea but we played well,” said the left-back.
“The manager is still confident. At the moment, we are alongside Chelsea in the battle to catch Manchester United.
“They are not dropping many points at the moment but there is still a long way to go.
“Honestly, I think Arsenal have the quality to come back from this. We just have to work hard.”
Why have Arsenal gone off the boil? Is it because:
A) They were flattering to deceive in the first place
B) Their squad is threadbare compared to the top two
C) Eduardo has broken his leg
D) They are missing Thierry Henry
E) Adebayor has lost his shooting boots
F) Something completely different?
