Not many would have predicted Arsenal staying at the top of the league standings, alright second on goal difference, after 12 games. The Gunners have been one of the best teams in the league and for once look formidable in their title challenge. Of course, we have seen many Arsenal teams start strong and then fade away towards the end of the season but something seems to be a little different with this Arsenal team. They seem to be able to get the results they need, without always playing exciting, electric football. Arsenal fans will keep in mind the thrashing they got from Bayern Munich which all but ends their chances of making it out of the group stages of the UEFA Champions League, but that should allow the team to concentrate on winning the Premier League.
Arsenal are tied at the top of the table with Manchester City and are only two points ahead of fourth-placed Manchester United. We look ahead to their next four Premier League fixtures and predict how well they would do against the opposition.
West Bromwich – Away
The Gunners return to Premier League duty against West Bromwich Albion away. They will go up against someone who has had a habit of getting under the skin of Arsene and Arsenal, Tony Pulis but with West Brom, Pulis could surmount a different challenge.
Brom are without a point from their last two games and this game might be a little too tough for them. Arsenal are in superb form and should easily get the three points against West Bromwich Albion.
