Good Week for Gunners
Arsenal took 7 points from three matches (two wins, one tie) in the last week. Meanwhile, Manchester United and Chelsea, the two teams ahead of them in the Premier League table, faltered a bit. Man U took only 3 points from two matches (a win and a loss), while league leaders Chelsea took 5 points from 3 matches (a win and two ties). As of now, Arsenal sit 6 points behind Chelsea and just 2 behind Man U, but Arsenal have a game in hand (that is, they've played one fewer game than their rivals). Should they win that game, they'd leapfrog Man U into second position, just three points behind Chelsea with about half the season still to play. Bottom line: The Gunners are very much in the hunt for silverware this season.
