Arsenal are closer to where they want to be after a good run of form and their competitors slipping up. The Gunners have lost one and drawn one in their last nine league games, winning seven.
At the moment Arsenal sit sixth on the table and have played one game less than the team below them while level on points with West Ham and just two points behind Manchester United with at least three outstanding matches.

Mikel Arteta’s side could easily move up to fourth with a win on Sunday and if Manchester United fails to beat table topper Manchester City.
Should Arsenal be worried about the three outstanding matches?
The prospect of having to play three matches while the competitors aren’t featuring is pleasing but the common saying “don’t count your chickens before they hatch” should be applied in this scenario.
Arsenal’s outstanding matches will be trips to London rivals Tottenham and Chelsea and a home encounter with title-chasing Liverpool.
It is a little worrying considering the Gunners have struggled against the ‘Big Six’ this season (W1, L5). The fixtures are tricky but Arsenal should be able to fight for at least four points from the three games, (a win and maybe a draw).
Arsenal shouldn’t think too much about the games in hand but rather each game at a time. The 14 games left should be played like cup finals.
