Opinion: Arsenal's Big 3 Hopes As They Fight For A Champions League Slot

Partey's Early Return

Let us get it right first. Mohammed Elneny has been brilliant in Arsenal's two victories that reignited their otherwise dead champions league hopes. In fact, many fans could vote him man of the match in both games. However, this doesn't mean when Partey is fit and available, he will not play a crucial role as the Gunners look to clinch top 4. If the Ghanaian comes back, Arsenal's midfield which is one injury away from a crisis will be sorted.

Spurs Continue To Blow Hot And Cold

Just over a week ago, Spurs looked favorites to win the 4 the spot. Arsenal had just lost 3 games on the bounce with 2 strikers who looked like they will not score a single goal in the remaining 6 games. Then Antonio Conte's side played Brighton at home with all their key players available but lost 1-0 without registering a single shot at goal. Even though Arsenal failed to capitalize on this opportunity in a heartbreaking fashion as fell to a 1 -0 loss to Southampton, they played their game in hand against Chelsea and won. Spurs then they played Brentford next and it ended goalless. Remember 2 matches back, Spurs were a free-scoring side but all of a sudden they look like a team that may not score in many matches. Long may those Tottenham tendencies continue, the Gunners may not even need to win all their remaining matches to qualify for the Champions league.

Everton Avoid Relegation Before Playing Arsenal

Seeing what is happening at Everton, as an Arsenal I wallow in regret about the defeat they inflicted on us last year in December. However, from an Arsenal point of view right now, we pray that they be in a safe position before we play them in our last game of the season because by then, if the Gunners' top 4 dreams have not yet been confirmed, it will be a game of high pressure. We do not want that to happen.
