Should we be expecting three points from all of these games? On paper we should be beating all of these teams. I'm not really expecting that based upon previous seasons and our lacklustre start. BUT! If we could then we will be in a very good place.

That's up there with one of the clearest runs you'll see.

Everton n Leicester are not easy games by any means, Everton has spent a lot more money in transfer window n playing well.

^ Watford too. Off topic but the team that has impressed me the most this season is Brighton. They are playing beautiful football in attack and defending really well too. I don't really care for them but them but a part of me wishes they had better attacking players because they would be even more enjoyable to watch.



We don't have anybody with 20 goals in the league, so that is a handicap - Arsene Wenger

Not easy games but those games are at home. Even under Wenger, we won those kind of home games. All the away games are against easier teams.

We really need to be picking up close to maximum points in this period as tougher games will come later.

If we want to compete for the "4th place trophy"(can't see us heading City, Liverpool or Spuds)then we need to take 15 points from these 6 games.

But we didnt win away games with AW



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Yes, that's where the improvement has to come. Those teams will be battling relegation this season, except maybe Fulham who are impressive going forward.

We should be winning these games, no matter who manager is.

Well things aren’t that simple, the new ownership at Everton are putting much more money n strengthen the team substantially this season that wasn’t the case during Wenger time n we have a new manager n our stingy owner didn’t spend enough to support him. There is structural change going on at Arsenal with changes in terms of players n even imminent shift in football philosophy. Not so much of straight forward case of well Wenger did it so it should still be easy to repeat.

So far so good. As mentioned I probably expected three points form most of these games, but still it's one thing to expect another to actually do.

Yes, well impressed. Emery and the team are doing as best as most of us hoped for by this point.

22nd Oct - Arsenal vs Leicester City
28th Oct - Crystal Palace vs Arsenal
03rd Nov - Arsenal vs Liverpool
11th Nov - Arsenal vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
25th Nov - AFC Bournemouth vs Arsenal

These next 5 fixtures aren't too bad either. We have a real chance to stay close to the leaders.

Liverpool at home seems more winnable now compared to the start of season. Their front 3 haven't played as well as expected and we are home.

I can see Wolves turning us over though. It's bound to happen eventually against a smaller side.

Wouldn't neccersary say Liverpool game is more winaboem they haven't lost a single game yet. But agree we are in a much better shape than earlier.

I'd expect Liverpool to beat us, and it will still be ok as long as they don't thrash us because that will be an improvement over recent seasons. We can lose every game vs City, Liverpool and Chelsea and still finish 4th. Consistency against the smaller sides is what matters more than beating the big 3.

This is true but i don't see why we should expect Liverpool to beat us at home. I know the meida love them, but on current form, they aren't blowing any teams away. Lucky to not lose either of Chelsea or Man City games.

I won't be surprised if we win that game. I think Emery may just have the right tactics to get it done.
