2017 has been an uphill battle for Arsenal, who began well but soon started to stumble. As we reach the end of the Premier League season, it’s hard to see how much they can make of their last few games whilst in their current form.
Since February the Gunners have been struggling to maintain any sort of winning streak, and haven’t really been managing to draw matches either. They faced a heaving 3-1 defeat against Chelsea and a hefty 5-1 defeat from Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Then in March, both Liverpool and West Brom defeated the Gunners 3-1; and the Reds also suffered another 5-1 against Bayern Munich in the second leg of their Champions League Match. Quite understandably, they are no longer competing in Europe.
Quite frankly, they have enough troubles at home to be worrying about. Some fans have lost confidence in the team, with the uncertainty surrounding the future of Wenger and key players, such as Sanchez, at the club. After suffering a 3-0 defeat against Crystal Palace, many, unshockingly, felt huge disappointment.
However, there is still hope. Arsenal might be currently 6th on the Premier League table, and risk finishing outside of the top four for the first time in 21 years, however, their recent win against Middlesbrough suggests that there is still hope.
The Gunners are set to play Manchester City for the FA Cup Semi final this weekend. Perhaps after a great start to the week they might just have enough motivation to gear themselves towards a trophy this year!
