5 Games That Cost Arsenal Title Push


After a goalless draw against Chelsea on Sunday, Arsenal remain 10 points adrift the league leaders with 5 games to left to play.

It means Jose Mourinho’s men are on course to win the club’s 4th Premier league title, and leaves Arsene Wenger’s men reeling in regret and wonder of what could’ve been, had it not been for such a turbulent first half of the season. These are the five games which wounded our title charge.

Way back in October after an international break, Arsenal resumed league matters against their 2014 FA Cup final opponents. On paper this was a game the Gunners were well expected to win at the time, but things didn’t quite go to plan.

The game finished 2-2 after Mohamed Diame and Abel Hernandez cancelled out Alexis Sanchez’ brilliant first half solo effort, before Danny Welbeck rescued a point for the home side. The Gunners might have felt aggrieved in the build up to Diame’s equalizer, when Mathieu Flamini appeared to be wrongly tugged off the ball.

Nacho Monreal had a chance to win the game at the very last minute, but missed the ball in a volleying attempt. Arsenal were frustrated to have left the Emirates with only a point after throwing away their lead.

It was not the result required after falling 2-0 losers to Chelsea in their previous league fixture.
