Premier League

Arsenal Has Chance Of Moving Up On EPL Table With Next Two Matches

With ten points from seven matches, Arsenal now has a chance of moving up on the English Premier league(EPL) table with its next two matches against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa at Emirates stadium.

The Gunners had started the 2021/2022 season with three straight losses to Premier league debutant, Brentford, Chelsea and Premier league's defending champions, Manchester City.

The next two home matches against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa at Emirates stadium should be an easy ride for a rejuvenated Arsenal side that has not lost a match in their last four games.

Victories over Norwich City, Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur saw the Gunners leapfrogged about seven Premier league clubs from its unenviable 19th position as at the end of the third week to the 11th position after seven games.

It is envisaged that the Gunners will continue from where they stopped before the international break that saw them chalked up ten points in their last four matches. A victory over both Crystal Palace and Aston Villa will fetch Arsenal additional six points that will bring the team's total haul to 16 points.

Presently, only six points separated the Premier league leader, Chelsea from Arsenal- a not too wide gap that could easily be plugged. For Liverpool, the gulf is five points, while Manchester City and Manchester United are separated from the Gunners by just four points.

With Aaron Ramsdale who has only conceded one goal in four matches, Arsenal now has a dependable goalkeeper between the sticks in place of Bernd Leno who has been disappointing in goal in the first three matches that saw nine goals went past him.

The defence line featuring Japanese sensation, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Ben White, Kolasinac, Tierney, Calum Chambers and Albert Lokonga are beginning to be impregnable having conceded only one goal in the last four matches.

Martin Odegaard, Partey, Smith Rowe, Bukayo Saka, Nicolas Pepe, Lacazette and Aubameyang are all beginning to find their rhythm after a disappointing start to the new season.
