Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, is adament that his side will come good in December and that the run of home games will help them get back into the title race.
The Gunners are currently 7th in the table and are 12 points off the leaders, Manchester United, but going in their favour is the fact that they’ve played eight of their 14 games away from home.
In December, Arsenal have four home games as they welcome: Swansea, West Brom, West Ham and Newcastle to the Emirates Stadium and Arsene Wenger believes the schedule gives them a chance to be back in the title run come the new year.
“At the moment the two Manchester sides [are top],” he told Arsenal Player. “They have not been spectacular but efficient, and they have made the maximum of the chances they have created.
“For example, Manchester United have already lost three games and have lost in the Champions League as well. It is exactly what we have done but they took more points and had less draws than we did. That has been the difference until now.
“We will come back. Now we have six games, four at home, and if we do well in this block I think we have a chance to come back. But of course it is vital for us to do well in these games.”
Arsenal welcome Swansea to the Emirates at the weekend and Arsene Wenger will be hoping his team can get back to winning games after two consecutive away draws.
