Is it too late for Arsenal’s Premier League title challenge?

Arsenal’s chances of winning the Premier League have been written off in recent weeks, and understandably so given their form.

Before recording back-to-back wins against Everton and Watford the Gunners had only won twice in nine Premier League games and been knocked out of the Champions League and FA Cup.

But by scoring six times without reply in their last two fixtures Arsene Wenger’s side have begun to rebuild their confidence and they could move one point behind second-placed Tottenham should they win their game in hand.Manchester United v Arsenal  Premier League

What’s more, Arsenal’s run-in looks significantly more favourable than Spurs’. In their final seven games Arsenal face only two sides in the top 10 – West Ham and Manchester City away, both games they should be able to win.

Tottenham, by contrast, face four teams in the top 10 in their final six games including Manchester United and Chelsea so there is hope that the Gunners could climb above their rivals and into second place.

Challenging for the title, though, seems unlikely and beyond Arsenal’s grasp unless there was an unprecedented and unexpected collapse from Leicester in their remaining six games.

As it stands Leicester are 11 points ahead but that would be cut to eight points if Arsenal beat West Brom in their game in hand. The Foxes would have to lose three times in a run of fixtures against Sunderland, West Ham, Swansea, Manchester United, Everton and Chelsea while Arsenal would have to put together a perfect finish.

It is not impossible, but second place for the Gunners is within their reach and a more attainable target. That would represent their best finish since 2005 and the best position they have achieved at the Emirates.
