It’s Wednesday and we’re still in 3rd…

Chronicles AFC Daily…

As an Arsenal fan things are pretty f*cking great at the moment, we remain in third place despite United playing their 32nd game up at Molineux and a small part of me thinks Crystal Palace are going to turn up to Spurs’ new ground this evening and spoil the party. Wishful thinking? Yeah, probably. But stranger things have happened and we are talking about a club notorious for their ability to crumble under the slightest bit of pressure.

Wolves 2-1 Man Utd

Wolves away was never going to be an easy game for United, even with Ole at the wheel full—time now I wasn’t surprised to see Nuno Espirito Santo’s side stick it to them on a cold Tuesday night in Wolverhampton. United started the game promisingly and when you see Scott McTominay hit a sweet strike like that past the diving Rui Patricio from 22 yards to score his first goal for the Manc bin dippers you do wonder whether its going to be one of those nights. Fortunately Jimenez and Jota were at the races and some lovely combination play between the two led to Wolves’ equaliser 12 minutes later.

A draw would have been a very positive result from an Arsenal perspective but things got even better when some calamitous defending involving De Gea, Smalling and a red faced Phil Jones gifted Wolves the winner. Arsenal and Spud’s fans alike would have been celebrating that winning goal across North London but it wasn’t long before the realisation kicked in that we too face a difficult trip up to Molineux on April 24th.

Although we’re in a fantastic position to qualify for next seasons UEFA Champions League and all the bookies have us as the firm favourites of the 4 teams chasing 3rd and 4th our patchy away form this season is a real cause for concern. There’s still a long way to go and I’m sure there will be many more twists and turns in the race to UEFA’s cheque book so it’s imperative we take each week at a time. Unai will need to rotate the squad effectively in order to maintain the fitness of our stars whilst at the same time being careful not to disrupt our momentum – sounds easier than it is right?

In other news, Fulham were finally put out of their misery and relegated to the Championship following a 4-1 defeat at Vicarage Road meaning another travel-friendly away trip will be missing from the fixture list next season. Cheers lads!

With 3 Premier League games taking place tonight including Spurs vs Crystal Palace and Chelsea vs Brighton it’s hard to see us still in 3rd come this time tomorrow so I plan on enjoying it for another few hours at least.

Our Everton vs Arsenal Preview Show will be out at 10am (uk time) on Thursday morning featuring a very special guest so stay tuned
