Since the season began Arsenal have had lot issues. Even though they are currently on top of the Premier League, everyone expects the Gunners to lose their pace because of Wenger’s lack of choices. The first eleven is definitely one that could bring home the glory but the substitutes have a hard time living up to expectations. Chelsea and City, who are Arsenal’s direct adversaries for the 2013-2014 championship title, have some of the strongest group of players in Europe. In the long run, that will make a huge difference. This aspect was made obvious when the Blues defeated Wenger’s team in the Capital One Cup while using mostly substitute players.
According to Metro, Arsenal’s Carl Jenkinson insists though his team can deal with situations like the one they currently have to face. Arsenal are going to face City and Chelsea after successfully qualifying for the next stage of the Champions League despite their 2-0 defeat against Napoli. The Gunners’ 21 year old right back is confident hard work is what will get his team the title this year. He also believes that Arsenal have reached a certain maturity which allows them to defeat any team, no matter who they are.
There is no doubt whatsoever, Wenger’s side have what it needs to win their first trophy in 8 and a half years. They haven’t had such a great season start in a long while and they definitely need to make the most out of this situation. With a comfortable 5 point advantage over Chelsea and Liverpool, the Gunners need to keep their distance until the winter transfer period. According to Arsenal’s manager, the Emirates side will bring in some serious reinforcements to help bring glory back to North London.
Ozil was just the beginning as far as transfers go. According to rumors, Arsenal are looking to sign a striker and a defender in order to offer players like Giroud, Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker some serious competition and rest. The whole situation looks promising for Gooners who badly need to see their team bring home a trophy. Hopefully this is going to finally be Arsenal’s year.
