Arsenal Top Four Race
Arsenal’s remaining fixtures : 1. Leeds United 2. Tottenham Hotspurs 3. Newcastle United 4. Everton
Tottenham’s remaining fixtures : 1. Liverpool 2. Arsenal 3. Burnley 4. Norwich
The gap is 2 points between the two clubs with Spurs facing a tough test against Liverpool at Anfield, Arsenal have a chance to make the gap to five points before the big North London Derby. Arsenal also have a chance to catch Chelsea who are just three points above them, however their fixtures are slightly favourable as compared to the Gunners.
This will be one of the biggest North London Derby of the recent times. Arteta’s Arsenal have the chance to overachieve with this young squad. It looks like because of former Arsenal player Alexis Sanchez’s comment, he is fully supporting the Gunners in achieving the task.
