Arsenal Boss and The Boys Has Bottled The European Champions League Spot Again.

We all had great hope for the gunners to cruise their way to the champions league in the coming season because just before the international break, they were doing just so well and getting all the points needed to achieve their quest to secure champions league qualification next season.

In recent times something has drastically changed because all the good mojo seems to have vanished all of a sudden, it used to be catch me if you can but not anymore because they have even been overtaken by their North London Local rival.

It is very clear that they are lacking in some departments, key players such as Thomas Partey, and Kieran Tierney got injured joining the Japanese Tomiyasu on the treatment table.


The Scottish got injured during the international break and the Ghanaian got injured during the match against Crystal Palace when they lost 3-0 away from home.

The expectation was that the gunners will bounce back from that defeat in their next match against Brighton Albion but rather, they suffered yet another defeat.

We have seen this situation before sometime back when Crystal Palace and Brighton denied Arsenal European competition, the same thing is about to happen this season as well because the Gunners have lost in their last two games to the same teams.

Some fans and other sporting people saw this coming when they frown at Mikel Arteta and Jaspar Edu in the January transfer window when they refuse to bring in more players but instead trim up the squad and even let their best striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang  go for free.

Arsenal has a strong enough first eleven but the bench is very slim and of low quality which is why they are having issues at the moment that some key members of the squad are out injured.

Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka formed a very good partnership in the midfield that has really helped the gunners so far but now there is a problem in the middle because the Ghanaian is missing and Xhaka had to cover the left full back for the Scottish international Tierney.

This is poor management by the gunner boss Mikel because he is a fund of not giving some players playing time which will eventually make them become match rusty as in the case of the poor Nuno Tavares, Sambi Lokonga, and someone like Nicolas Pepe.

Nicolas Pepe is supposed to be getting more game time because he is one of their best attackers when it comes to goal delivery but Arteta is someone that select his team based on favoritism.

It has been a Poor rotation system by Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta all the way because if Tavares has been managed well there won’t be any need for Granit Xhaka to be covering the left full-back position instead of plying his trade in the midfield which will surely be more reasonable.


The Midfield is very weak, has no power, and the enforcer is doing all the breakup that is needed to protect the defense, no calmness in the middle as well and that is why there were misplaced passes leading to goals at times.

There are tough matches ahead of the gunner, making it more difficult for them to qualify for the Champions League because they will drop points against the big boys as they have done so far this season.

The Gunners will play Southampton, Chelsea, Manchester United in April and they will play Westham United, Leads United, and their Local rival Tottenham Hot Spurs. Four of those matches are away and two will be played at the Emirate stadium.

It will only take a miracle for the Gunners to qualify for the Champions League because at the moment, Tottenham Hot Spurs is very much in form as they are winning games conveniently with good goal merging.
