Arsenal are currently third in the league after beating Manchester United with Tottenham backsliding after their match ended in a draw.
The competition is now stiff provided that only 5 games remaining before the season end.With that, there are things that Mikel Arteta and Arsenal must do if it means finishing top four.
First the team should ensure that the fitness of the players is observed.Arsenal's injury costed Arsenal alot in the games against Crystal Palace, Southampton and Brighton.This was after Partey and Kieran Tierney ruled out of the squad due to injury.This showes that the team should ensure that the players remain fit.
Second,Arteta should ensure that he avoid unnecessary rotation of players.Rotation of Xaka was worthless for Arsenal but rather was a mess in the midfield.In the game against Southampton Xaka was totally poor and nothing happening in the midfield.
Granted, with Tomiyasu is back he should come into the fold, and while the shape will change from time to time during matches, there is no reason not to stick with those who’ve won the last two games.
Lastly, Arsenal must ensure that they win the game against Tottenham come early May.Winning this game will be most important for Arsenal and Arteta.With this also the team will end up in top four.
