The Gunner team dreams of what already seems impossible: add the most points in four games and have options for continental competitions.
Mathematically it is possible. And as long as there is a margin, there will be hope. At least it’s what he’s been saying Mikel Artetacoach Arsenal that, for now, it is far from the positions that give places to European competitions, but that with four games ahead it can add as many units as possible to scratch a square to the Europa League.
However, the road will not be easy, because this Wednesday, as the first stop, receives Liverpool champion, the team of Jürgen Klopp who, although he has already fulfilled his desired goal, wants to reach a hundred points in a tournament, a distinction that Manchester holds. City.
History says that the last nine times the Gunners collided with those of Anfield there were no wins for those in North London (four draws and five defeats). And that to find success you have to go back, until 2015 when Arsenal won 4-1. Sure, it was other times, the same teams, other players.
In addition, keep in mind that Liverpool does not lose at the Emirates four games ago, a sign of how good it feels to play on that stage. The pressure is on Arsenal, because it is the only way out to save, at least, what has been the worst season of the last decade for a club that previously fought titles and now struggles to be among the first in the table.
